Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993) – Film Review

Filed under: Celebrity,Comedy,Film Review — smackamack @ 11:48 am


Plot: Larry and Carol are fairly normal New Yorkers who have sent their son off to college. They meet an elderly couple down the hall and later in the week find that the wife has suddenly died. Carol becomes suspicious of Paul who seems to be too cheerful and too ready to move on. She begins her investigation. Larry insists she is becomming too fixated on what their neighbor as all of the irregularities seem to have simple non-homicidal explanations. Ted, a recently divorced friend helps her investigation and Larry begins to become jealous of their relationship and agrees to help her.

iycyecBlah.  Truly dissapointing, one of the worst Woody Allen films ever.  More specifically, Diane Keaton looked like she had never acted in her whole life. 

I don’t recommend this film…basically Allen is trying to be witty and nostalgic with old murder mystery films such as Double Indemnity, but it definitely didn’t work.  I give this movie 1/5 stars.
