Murder Mystery sounds a bit cheesy in the mouth. The name gives it away as a movie overflowing with detective works. And that’s exactly what it is. Add the fact that it’s also an adventurous comedy, and you’ve got yourself one entertaining movie.
Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler make the best pair. Their chemistry is effortless, and is easily the best part of this movie.
Nick and Audrey Spitz have been married for 15 years, and finally decide to go on their long overdue honeymoon. They find themselves thrown into the middle of a large, influential family’s drama when the partriach is murdered mid-sea. They’ve got to find a way to clear their names else try risk spending the rest of their lives in jail.
Let’s review the facts…
This mildly entertaining movie attempts to spoof old time murder mysteries. It’s like bringing Murder on an Orient Express and intensely stupifying it for the purpose of entertainment. For the most part it works simply because it doesn’t take itself serious in the slightest bit. The reveal of the murderer isn’t quite as intense as a murder plot should’ve been, but the movie never did take itself seriously to consider the importance or lack thereof.
Some of the scenes are cliche, but they got laughing, which I believe is what’s really important.
The movie boasts a lot of beautiful sceneries -the plane’s VIP lounge, the yacht, and streets of Spain- all of which keeps things bright and hopeful, working in its favor.
