A goofball comedy with heart
14 June 2019 | by robertalancashmanSee all my reviews

Sandler is back. He goes alright too. I laughed during the film. What else do I need to say. Anniston is a good sort. The movie has just enough mystery to make the murder in the Murder Mystery movie a good mystery murder. Plenty of tropes and cliches but still feels fresh enough, and has just enough romance to be a good one to watch with your lady friend. It's not god tier Sandler like in Sandy Wexler, but it does deliver an entertaining evening in, as opposed to standing outside in the cold.
