Audience Reviews for Once Upon a Crime

With an all-star cast that includes John Candy, James Belushi, Cybill Shepherd, Sean Young, and Richard Lewis, Once Upon a Crime is a farcical comedy that delivers some good laughs. The story follows a group of strangers in Monte Carlo that accidentally become involved in the murder of a wealthy widow. The plot is a bit thin, but the characters are interesting and the comedy keeps the film moving. However, by the end the characters have all been played out and the story becomes tiresome. While no one's at their best in Once Upon a Crime, it's still entertaining and fun (for the most part).
