Even loved it after the tenth time!
3 April 2002 | by (Philly, PA) – See all my reviews

My sister and I saw this as kids (me, 10; her, 7) and we still talk about it to this day. We've tried to rent it, but of course it is not available, but my parents had taped it for us the second time it was on (on Beta) and we watched it over and over again. Very clever parody of murder mysteries with a funny cast and silly plots that twist into a surprising and fun ending. Can't say enough about it....
