Critic Reviews for Murder Mystery

All Critics (43) | Top Critics (12)

  • Aniston and Sandler, paired before in 2011's Just Go With It, relax into their roles as if their only stake in Mystery is to enjoy the free trip to Italy and have fun running down cobblestones.

  • Every Adam Sandler comedy abides by a trope as hoary as "the butler did it." At some point in the shenanigans, Sandler's schlub has gotta get a chance to prove he's the bravest boy in the world.

  • It would be uncomfortably cynical to assume that Sandler thinks these novocaine-like comedies are what common people want to watch, but the guy doesn't leave us much choice.

  • Even grading on a curve, though, Murder Mystery is a tired, bordering on tiresome endeavor -- feeling like the pilot for a not-very-good TV show -- as well as a reminder that Netflix's content buffet caters to all kinds of tastes.

  • Adam Sandler is a genius, sure. But I'd love it if he were to smarten up, too.

  • Just entertaining enough to make you wish it was actually good.
