"Murder 101" is a not-bad made-for-TV mystery movie. Some of its red herrings are a bit obvious, but the final revelation is indeed a surprise. However, the WAY the movie manages to surprise you is, as someone else on this page has already said, by breaking its own rules. At one point, college professor/mystery writer Brosnan teaches his students that when they reveal the villain in a mystery story, they must have left enough clues for the reader/viewer to make him say "Of course! How didn't I think of that?". That's exactly what this movie DOESN'T do. It leaves out the clues that are essential for someone to discover the real culprit behind the crimes. So I guess you could say that it cheats. But if you like Brosnan, you may not mind. (**)
