If you like a more fun lighthearted version of an Agatha Christie type of murder mystery, then this just might be for you.
A key ingredient in a solid whodunnit story that I look for, is that it allows me to play along with the mystery. This movie does that! It’s always fun guessing along with the characters.
Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston are good in this! They have good chemistry playing a couple, and I just love the bantering that they do throughout the movie.
The supporting cast are good in this too, and add to the entertainment factor.
There are some thrilling set pieces, and fun sight gags, to go along with the situational comedy parts of the movie.
I also appreciated how this movie and the lead characters have a certain self-awareness to how they are living through a real life murder mystery. Good stuff.
Despite the positives, this is still a straight-forward mystery comedy that doesn’t really add too much new to the genre.
Some people may not find the mystery that interesting, or may not find the humor that funny, or both. To each his own.
It’s not exactly unique, and can feel a little derivative at times.
The supporting cast are essentially just caricatures or one-dimensional enough to serve their purpose for the plot.
Multiple times you’re going to have to suspend your disbelief for some of the more unbelievable moments that happens throughout the movie.
