When Regis first pulls up to the White House, he is parked in front of the large metal gates. When he shows the security guard (secret service?) his ID, you can clearly see that there is no gate and the plastic bar (seen previously inside the large metal gates) is directly in front of his car. The next scene is him pulling up to the spot he was just in. See more »
You expect me to violate everything I was ever taught? I have duties.
Detective Harlan Regis:
Yeah, and your duties can send an innocent man to jail for the rest of his life. You wanna live with that.
Yeah, and I think you better leave.

At first, it appears as though it will be your typical, by-the-numbers political thriller. Then, as the movie progresses, it gets better and better, thanks to a fast pace and lots of exciting action scenes.
'Murder at 1600' focuses on the discover of a brutally-murdered intern in the White House. Two detectives (Wesley Snipes and Dennis Miller) are assigned to the case, with White House security personnel limiting the detectives with classified information which may be useful to the case. Lucky for them, a dedicated Secret Service Agent (Diane Lane) reluctantly helps.
Although it gets predictable at times (especially at the end), it's still a fun little thriller. It really gives you a deep feeling of paranoia as well!
