He believes that money will bring her back to him, but while he leads a comfortable life, most of his massive inheritance is in a trust fund that can only be accessed in extraordinary circumstances. Tony's uncle Jarvis, an expert in orchids, proposes a plan: he will help Tony fake his own kidnapping, which will allow Tony to gain a good portion of his trust fund unsuspected.

What Jarvis doesn't realize is that all his careful planning will fall apart under the watchful eye of Lieutenant Columbo, who quickly finds holes in the kidnapping scenario.

Audience Reviews for Columbo: The Greenhouse Jungle


The Greenhouse Jungle is an impressive crime thriller that has some unexpected twists. When Tony Goodland conspires with his uncle to stage a fake kidnapping in order to break his trust fund, his uncle betrays and murders him to get the money; meanwhile Lt. Columbo is partnered with Sgt. Wilson, an up-and-coming detective who's eager to solve the Goodland kidnapping by the book. The storytelling's fairly well-done and does a good job at unraveling the murder plot. And, the Sgt. Wilson character is a welcomed addition to the series, and he acts as a good foil to Columbo and his old fashion methods. A smart and entertaining mystery, The Greenhouse Jungle is another solid entry into the Columbo series.
