Murder Mystery – A Fun Whodunit That Will Entertain!

June 26, 2019 Rissi JC 4 Comments

In recent months, one of my favorite things to do is see what’s new on Netflix. This is most true when it comes to their originals. Some aren’t my cup of tea and I don’t bother to give them a chance, but given my enjoyment of Agatha Christie stories, I knew Murder Mystery to be something that I’d like to see.

Murder Mystery (2019) Netflix Review

For fifteen years a promised dream of a European trip is set aside. But now, on their fifteenth anniversary, Audrey Spitz (Jennifer Aniston) wonders why her husband Nick (Adam Sandler) doesn’t take her on that long-ago promised honeymoon. An NYC detective, Nick is something of a spend thrift who doesn’t remember the promise as well as his wife. But in order to make up for the mistake, he plans a trip, pretends it was already in the works, and off the two go on a bus-guided tour.

Things don’t go exactly as planned, and along the way, they become entangled in the life of the wealthy Charles Cavendish (Luke Evans), a man who has a rather peculiar family.

To be honest, this movie isn’t quite what I thought it’d be. It’s not as funny as I’d anticipated, but is still quite an entertaining way to spend ninety-minutes.  What helps this is the fun setting and jet-setting travel. The locales are stunning, and make even the casual viewer want to see them in person. In this way, Murder Mystery reminds me of something like Knight and Day or the Mission: Impossible films. The plot is on par with the former, but not up to the latter.

This isn’t the first time Sandler has been in a Netflix original nor is it the first time Aniston and Sandler have been co-stars. Previous to this, they also co-starred in the (adult) romantic-comedy Just Go With It. A comedy that in spite of itself, I do find quite entertaining. This film is equally flawed, but is still a fun summertime popcorn romp. It’s almost like a madcap whodunit in the tradition of the film version of the board game, Clue.

If you like fun simple, but still entertaining mysteries or Knight and Day (one of my favorites), there’s an excellent chance you’ll enjoy this, too.

Where to watch: You can stream Murder Mystery on Netflix.

Content: There’s quite a bit of sexual innuendo, and crude comments. But the film pretty much remains within its PG-13 rating.

    I just watched this one the other night on the recommendation of a coworker, and I really liked it! I love Aniston and Sandler together in Just Go With It, and they’re just as charming here. It’s not a GREAT film, but it sure is enjoyable :-)

      It’s really entertaining; not quite as humorous as I would anticipate, but still so fun. :) “Just Go With It” is one of my favorites. As you say, not great, but fun nonetheless. SO glad you enjoyed this one!! :)

    I know a lot of people rip on Adam Sandler, but I love him and have seen pretty much all his movies! This was entertaining!

      I’ve enjoyed all of the films I’ve seen Sandler in. He’s definitely a comedic actor, and it works well for the films he’s been in. :) I agree. This is indeed entertaining.
