Thumbs up for I Love A Mystery
15 March 2013 | by chbuttercupSee all my reviews

I too saw this as a child and totally loved it! Perhaps it's my warped sense of humor! Lol. I lucked out and saw it a couple more times in my teens, and even managed to Audio Tape it...anyone else ever do that? Hartmann and Knotts' characters have stuck with me, the wonderfully twisted surprise ending, the great verbal word play between the characters...just fantastic! Good, clean fun, adorable characters, and an engaging mystery. Well written, well acted and just what I think we could use more of in the movie industry for family enjoyment. I would just love to find this movie again, and have been searching for it on VHS or DVD for years now. Please Powers That Be, make it available!!!!!
