Pretty Good Murder Mystery
23 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a by the numbers murder mystery courtesy of the Hallmark Channel. It stars Ally Sheedy as Jane, whose Aunt Gertrude was viciously murdered. Tom, played by Sean Patrick Flannery, plays her boyfriend and after a period of time, way before the film is half over, we find he is the prime suspect. Detective Jack Morris, played by rocker Meat Loaf, takes on what was a cold case. He is by far the best thing about this film, as he plays the role simply but with a quiet determination. He should do more acting, he is good at it. The film is nothing special but it is definitely watchable. Nia Peeples is kind of underutilized as Jane's best friend, but the movie is really about Jane and Jack anyway. If it replays and you like murder mysteries, its worth watching.
