While Murder By Death may be better, this one does not disappoint. Retaining Peter Falk, Eileen Brennan, James Coco, and James Cromwell from MBD, Simon adds Marsha Mason, Sid Caesar, the great Madeline Kahn, Dom DeLuise, Vic Tayback, John Houseman, in nothing more than cameos, Ann-Margret and Phil Silvers, as well as many others to make a strong and wonderful cast. The jokes and plot are fast moving, and the atmosphere is well done. If you're expecting an exact Murder By Death sequel, you'll be disappointed. If you want another good mystery spoof, you've got it.
