Trivia

Jewel, as Shannon, performs a portion of one of her own songs, The Shape of You, which is on her latest album, Picking Up the Pieces, during the memorial scene. See more »

Goofs

When Shannon is changing the tire, she begins to break the lug nuts loose using the wrench the wrong way. She is trying to lift (wrench handle pointing to the right), which requires a great deal of strength, instead of pushing down (wrench handle pointing to the left). Often lug nuts are so tight they require full body weight on them, such as standing on the wrench handle. Unless she had the strength of Wonder Woman, she would not have been able to loosen the lug nuts as shown. See more »

Jewel (Kilcher) is the 60 million dollar woman
7 July 2018 | by See all my reviews

If the audience keeps in mind that this film was made especially for television and is not a Hollywood blockbuster with an unlimited budget, I can candidly say that "Framed For Murder: A Fixer Upper Mystery" is well worth the price of admission compared to so many big Hollywood flops.

Lead actress/singer Jewel Kilcher plays a building contractor (yeah guys she renovates homes, and changes flat tires for men) named Shannon Hughes who discovers the dead body of her close friend Jesse Hennessey, (Ken Tremblett) in his home. Jesse was a deep sea treasure hunter and it becomes evident quickly that there is someone who wants one of Jesse's found treasures enough to kill for it. The police initially say Jesse's death was an accident and not a homicide. Case closed. Or is it?

So Shannon (Jewel) who is distraught over the sudden death of her close friend Jesse decides to solve this murder mystery with or without the local police's assistance. Shannon has a new tenant living in her studio apartment, a writer named Mac Sullivan (Colin Ferguson) who Shannon has just signed a contract with to renovate Mac's historical mansion. These two romantics Shannon and Mac, have very good on screen chemistry and they team up to try and solve the mystery. But eh, Shannon (Jewel) is easy on the eyes so who wouldn't have good on screen chemistry with her? She also sings professionally with a voice of an angel. (Her hit songs included "Hands", "Who Will Save Your Soul", and "Foolish Games" to name but a few.)

The movie moves along at a good and easy pace with a number of suspects that will keep you guessing. I enjoyed it a lot more than many of the big budget Hollywood releases and I hope Jewel keeps making more of these family themed entertaining films.

I give it a solid 8 out of 10 rating
