Clean, light-hearted fun ... and a murder to investigate too
16 May 2003 | by (San Francisco Bay Area) – See all my reviews

This is an easy-going, light-hearted murder mystery.

There is an amazing chemistry between the Rabbi (Stuart Margolin) and the rabbi's wife (his actual wife). The Police Chief (Art Carney) also has the benefit of having his wife in the movie.

The victim died at the Synagogue. Her purse was in the Rabbi's car, a cute scandal.

If it comes on, try to see it.

This was the pilot for the revolving mystery series (McCloud, Columbo, etc.).
