•MURDER MYSTERY (2019)
•GENRE: Comedy, Crime, Mystery
✅GOOD: AGATHA CHRISTIE ON A BUDGET!
✅Prefect modern day premises for Agatha’s dream vacation turned murder hunt! You have family drama, an actress, a racer, a Yacht, dirty family secrets and an Indian Maharajah for that Christie Special exotic touch!
✅Very Amusing and quite accurate spoof of classic whodunit mysteries! (Which can only be enjoyed if you are a fan of genre and can pick those subtle references!)
✅Sandler and Aniston’s chemistry that made Sandler as well as slapstick humor a lot more palatable.
✅A decent supporting cast with a good pacing.
(Though I wished to see more of Luke Evans)
❎THE BAD: BAD IF YOU ARE NOT A FAN! -
❎If you don’t like Sandler (or stand Sandler), Jennifer Aniston, Agatha Christie or Whodunit mysteries; this will be your dish of Cheesy Cheese balls served with some extra cringe! -
❎THIS IS NOT A GENUINE MYSTERY!It is a SPOOF! So, if you aren’t intrigued by the mystery, you are not supposed to be.
🚫THE UGLY: BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL?
Why did no nobody get the memo about MM being a movie and not a stand up comedy?
📌VERDICT: Guys, let’s be real! Sandler is old and those hardworking days of his earlier movies are long gone. The same goes for Aniston!(I mean someone has to pay for those 200 dollars bootcuts!)So, If you are expecting something crazily hilarious or some mega budget entertainment, you won’t get any.This is an ‘EFFORT-LESS’ just PAY-MY-BILLS kind of project. Having said that, for murder mystery devotees (like myself), this movie was not bad. There is some decent humor, mystery is good and Sandler-Aniston’s due doesn’t disappoint. Honestly, there is no reason for you to miss a silly entertainment like this at the end of a frenetic day! Lighten Up, People. Enjoy!
