‘Murder Mystery’ Review (Netflix)

Stars: Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston, Luke Evans, Terence Stamp, Gemma Arterton, David Walliams, Danny Boon, John Kani, Adeel Akhtar, Olafur Darri Olafsson, Luis Gerardo Mendez, Shioli Kutsuna, Erik Griffin | Written by James Vanderbilt | Directed by Kyle Newacheck

Murder Mystery, directed by Kyle Newacheck, once again team’s duo Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston after their coupling in Just Go With It, released eight years previously in 2011.

Murder Mystery is the sixth entry into Adam Sandler’s infamous Netflix deal after his departure from Sony almost two years ago. It’s been quite the rocky road to balance sufficient entertainment value from Sandler at his new home. With three films out of the six being a horrendous slog to sit through. Thankfully, his latest is one of his better instalments, perhaps his best comedic performance since the late Nineties. All thanks due to the talent of his co-star Jennifer Aniston, who is delightful as Audrey Spitz,

‘Murder Mystery’ Review: Adam Sandler Delivers His Best Netflix Movie Yet With Help from Jennifer Aniston

There may be a low bar, but Adam Sandler's latest Netflix movie Murder Mystery is probably his best yet* thanks to the help of an old friend -- Jennifer Aniston. Sandler and Aniston previously co-starred in Just Go With It, and while the screen may be smaller this time around, they still have solid chemistry together. Murder Mystery finds the duo playing blue-collar couple Nick and Audrey Spitz -- he's a cop, she's a hairdresser -- who only seem to travel for funerals, and have never taken the European vacation they've always talked about... until now.

Film Review: ‘Murder Mystery’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Murder Mystery’
There’s a fortune at loose and Adam Sandler is on the case — in fiction and reality. A decade ago, “Murder Mystery,” a caffeinated comedy that stars Sandler and Jennifer Aniston as working class New Yorkers whose European vacation gets handcuffed to a $70 billion corpse, would have raked in a respectable haul at the box office. (The duo’s 2011 romp “Just Go With It” earned $215 million worldwide.) Today, the A-listers are cavorting on Netflix in a film that feels like a postcard from a past era. Turns out the small screen frames their caper flick just fine.

The multiplex may be in peril, but at least it’s faring better than tycoon Malcolm Quince (an imperious Terence Stamp) who saunters into the ballroom of his yacht to announce that he’s disinheriting all of his guests, and is promptly stabbed to death. The suspects could have all rolled in from a game of Clue.

Murder Mystery review – Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston buoy fun Netflix comedy

Old-fashioned movie star charm lifts a goofy, likable film that puts a New York couple in the middle of a European whodunnit

Adam Sandler’s monstrous eight-movie deal with Netflix arrived as both a blessing and a curse for those who had actually endured any of his last eight self-produced theatrical releases. While it allowed most of us to simply pretend he had stopped working (points for anyone who’s even aware of what Sandy Wexler is), it also allowed him to continue making the same films that even his most impassioned fans had stopped buying tickets for. His streaming output has been predictably, punishingly unfunny up until now, and one would safely expect the same from his latest, which reunites him with Jennifer Aniston, who starred with him in 2011’s execrable romcom Just Go With It.

A Look Back at Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler's Nearly 30-Year Friendship, in Photos

  • Popsugar
Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler have a friendship like no other in Hollywood. The 50-year-old actress and 52-year-old actor teamed up to star in Netflix's Murder Mystery this year, but their relationship actually dates back nearly three decades, as they first met at a deli and bonded over french toast in the early '90s. "We were friends before Friends," Jennifer said while reflecting on her and Adam's initial hangout on Jimmy Kimmel Live. "We must have been like real family in another life." Aww!

The longtime pals famously costarred as love interests in 2011's Just Go With It, and the following year, Adam spoke at Jennifer's Hollywood Walk of Fame star ceremony, cracking jokes and declaring, "I love this girl. My wife loves this girl. The entire world loves this girl." Since then, the two have remained closer than ever, hanging out with each other's families and gushing

You're Right, Murder Mystery Isn't Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler's First Movie Together
Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler recently joined forces for their new Netflix film, Murder Mystery, but if you're a fan of their tight-knit friendship, you know this isn't their first movie together. After meeting in the '90s and bonding over French toast, the pair starred in 2011's Just Go With It. In a previous interview with Access Hollywood, Sandler couldn't help but gush about how much he loved working with Aniston in the romantic comedy. "I couldn't believe how quick and funny Jennifer [is]," he said. "I know she is [funny] in real life, but it was pretty amazing when we were together how much fun [we had] and how she added and ended up beating me in scenes. I'd walk back to the trailer saying, 'I gotta get some writers to help me.'" I can't wait to see them together again in Murder Mystery, which hits Netflix on June 14.

Adam Sandler to star in creepy comedy Hubie Halloween for Netflix

Adam Sandler has set his next project at Netflix, with The Observer revealing that he’s set to produce and star in the comedy Hubie Halloween, which will be produced through his Happy Madison banner.

According to the site, the plot synopsis reads as follows:

Good-natured but eccentric community volunteer Hubie Dubois (Sandler) finds himself at the center of a real murder case on Halloween night. Despite his

devotion to his hometown of Salem, Massachusetts (and its legendary Halloween celebration), Hubie is a figure of mockery for kids and adults alike. But this year, something really is going bump in the night, and it’s up to Hubie to save Halloween.

Hubie Halloween will be directed by frequent Sandler collaborator Steven Brill and is slated to begin production in July.

Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler Go on the Run in Netflix’s ‘Murder Mystery’ Trailer (Video)
In a perfectly ’90s pairing and reunion, Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler team up as framed criminals on the run in Netflix’s new action-comedy “Murder Mystery.”

Sandler plays a New York detective who, after 15 years of marriage, finally takes his wife (Aniston) on a long-promised European trip. When Aniston meets a charming and wealthy British man (Luke Evans), they’re invited to an intimate family gathering on a yacht of an elderly billionaire, only to be present when the man is murdered. They become the prime suspects in a modern day whodunit.

The first trailer for the film shows a queasy scene of a man removing and then putting back the bloody murder weapon in the body, and another in which Aniston takes control behind the wheel of a Ferrari.

Murder Mystery Trailer Reunites Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston on Netflix

Netflix has released the first trailer for Murder Mystery. This is the latest collaboration between the streaming service and former Saturday Night Live cast member Adam Sandler. This time around, he's reuniting with his Just Go With It co-star Jennifer Aniston, along with a pretty impressive ensemble for, as the title implies, a classic whodunit tale set in the modern era. But, you know, set against the backdrop of a typical Sandler movie, for better or for worse.

Things start off with some gags involving low-hanging fruit, as one might expect, with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston doing their best not to get into an argument on a flight. Then Aniston's character comes across a rather dashing, mysterious gentleman in first class. This leads them to a much more, interesting, high-class adventure than they had previously planned. Until things go wrong because, as the title makes explicitly clear, someone gets murdered.
