Storyline

What happens when an eyewitness to a murder comes forward to the police forty years later? What happens when the detective assigned to the case finds out that it is her mother who has made that call? Laura Posey is that detective and Ava Posey Bedingfield is the woman who can no longer live without her two daughters knowing the truth. The Maltese Murder Mystery is the story of love and deceit, of envy and lust, of hatred, addiction and murder. The Maltese Murder Mystery tells the compelling story of human frailties and the lengths to which people will go both to conceal and, perhaps even more harmful, to hide from the truth.

Cheesy acting, Improbable plot. Cartoon characters
25 October 2010 | by mhriesSee all my reviews

And those are the good points! There are too many holes in this ridiculous plot which looks like it was filmed as a high school project. It reeks of amateurism in all aspects of film making. The characters are silly, from the Snidely Whiplash theater owner to the traumatized twin sister of the detective. And then there's the druggist who illegally dispenses cough syrup to the town bad guys in little bottles neatly wrapped in little paper bags. The flashbacks are annoying and the coincidence of the murder occurring on the day JFK was assassinated is absurd. I wasted my time watching this farce...don't waste yours.
