Murder 101 is MORE than just the Dick Van Dyke whodunit...
8 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just finished watching Pierce Brosnan in Murder 101... a MUCH better whodunit set on the campus scene... Great turns at every turn with a surprise ending even after the surprise! And the context is better than a criminology class, much more believable than the usual Dyke and Barry Van Dyke show (which parallels the Diagnosis Murder TV whodunit show which ALSO stars Dick Van Dyke as the sleuth and his son Barry as the constable detective!) The comment here that THIS TV Murder 101 is a bit of a cheesy crime solver is, unfortunately, true, and I think I liked the characters a LITTLE better in Diagnosis Murder! The BEST way to find out about the Brosnan TV movie Murder 101 is to look up Pierce Brosnan here on IMDb and look up his filmography.
