At a time of international incident, the body of a young female staffer is found in a White House wash room. Homicide detective Harlan Regis is called in to investigate the murder only to discover the secret service had taken hold of all the evidence for their own investigation. A frustrated Regis becomes suspicious of a cover-up and convinces secret service agent Nina Chance to aid him. The remainder of the plot is spent following Regis and Chance as they uncover the answers as to who is behind the conspiracy and why. Written by

Near the end of the movie where Nina Chance waits for the secret service to arrest her in the tunnels, she runs up a flight of stairs and attacks an agent. Clearly this is a stage built as the walls are wobbling during the action scene. 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!
