An engaging life imitates art comedy/crime drama.

Nobody labors quite like Woody Allen to produce a modest entertainment.

A minor-league Allen, an amiable romp that, like The Thin Man, tries to blend suspense with marital comedy, not always successfully.

A movie inspired by movie escapism. Minor, but surprisingly, almost defiantly upbeat.

Although "Manhattan Murder Mystery" struggles with its own contrivances, it achieves a gentle, nostalgic grace and a hint of un-self-conscious wisdom.

Terrific Woody Allen thrill comedy with the great Keaton co-starring as a plus.
| Original Score: 4/5

A deft blend of humor and suspence. It's almost as if Allen missed his calling to direct thrillers.
| Original Score: 4/5

A cute Allen comedy; not one of his classics, but has some inspired moments.
| Original Score: 3/5

A frequently funny flick that reminds one of the younger, odder Woody Allen.

The Woodman is back and he's in rare form. Manhattan Murder Mystery is Woody Allen's first flat-out comedy in years.

As if William Powell were back with Myrna Loy or Gracie Allen with George Burns, Keaton and Allen revel in each other's presence.

Happily, these two stir up stardust memories of his earlier, funnier work, instead of the embarrassing voyeurism of "Husbands and Wives."

That Woody Allen found time to be remotely funny -- in the midst of his highly publicized legal troubles -- surely merits some kind of professional award.

"Manhattan Murder Mystery" is an accomplished balancing act.
