Macy, Arkin, Huffman, and Cromwell are clearly having a good time with this amiable little farce noir. Fortunately they're able to transfer much of that fun over to the viewer.

...a comedy-thriller that is really pretty nifty, with a topflight cast by television standards.

Audience Reviews for A Slight Case of Murder

This is Macey at his best in a comedic role. The scripting and dialogue are likewise tops. The play within a play format adds to the fun as Macey addresses the audience while his life falls apart. If you like murder, mayhem, sleazy characters, and smart cops, all wrapped up in a funny movie, you will love this gem.

William H. Macy makes every film he is in better. As usual, he is terrific. Good story, amusing and always interesting. It can't quite escape it's television roots, which for me is a negative thing for a film, but it is entertaining. ?he supporting cast is fine, but it's Macy's film all the way.
