Nice murder mystery movie
31 August 2002 | by AnnVSee all my reviews

This movie was nice and easygoing, with a smooth pace, with a few jokes and charming cast. Dick and Dorothy really are the way they should be,:)) they fill their characters in the best possible way. And with the cast of fun/not-so-normal characters (The Doc, Gus. Sidney?) this is a nice posh movie to enjoy on a day with no assignments.:))
