A classic whodunnit/comedy featuring the great Warren William
10 March 1999 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

When I sat down to watch this I thought, another Perry Mason movie. I have always loved Perry Mason but this is the best damn one you will ever see.

As well as having a great plot and whodunnit side to it, it has got to be the funniest movie you are ever likely to see. A classic scene arises at the end of the movie when Perry has gathered everyone together to announce the killer, at the same time that the doctor is giving him a physical.

If you are into comedy/whodunnit movies then I highly recommend this one.
