Murder Mystery (2019) - Shreya Sachdev

Murder Mystery is a 2019 comedy film directed by Kyle Newacheck and Anne Fletcher. It stars Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston, Luke Evans, Gemma Arterton, Shiori Kutsuna, David Walliams, and many more. Murder Mystery is about a couple (played by Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston) that go on a delayed honeymoon. On the plane, Jennifer Aniston meets a rich man who invites her and Adam Sandler to spend the day with him on his yacht. They agree but soon find themselves in the middle of a murder. Together, they must figure out who the culprit is but also keep themselves safe. Therefore, their honeymoon turns into one big mystery. When I first saw the trailer for this movie, I was extremely excited. Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler are two amazing actors and them coming together was a dream come true for me. I remember seeing them in “Just Go With It” and loving the movie. I knew Murder Mystery was going to be just as good if not better. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed by this movie. From the moment it started, it was hilarious. It was a mix of suspense with comedy and it worked well. I also enjoyed making my own theories as to who the murderer could be and I was very interested in the ending of the film when they finally reveal who the killer is. My one issue with it was that I wish Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler’s characters were just a bit more realistic. When the murders happened in the movie, their characters didn’t seem to react much and you would expect a reaction from a middle class couple who are on a billionaire yacht. Still, I would award this movie an 8.5/10.
