Audience Reviews for Suitable for Framing
Predictable and mundane, Suitable for Framing is a passionless crime thriller. The story follows an art critic who kills his uncle in order to inherit his art collection, but to succeed he'll have to manipulate the police and Lt. Columbo into arresting his aunt-in-law for the crime. The plot's rather obvious, although it does a good job at staging the climax where Columbo reveals how he solved the case. And, there are some strong supporting performances from Don Ameche and Kim Hunter. Suitable for Framing isn't necessarily bad, it's just poorly executed.
Average Columbo entry, not bad. A famous art critic kills his uncle for his art collection of paintings. It is particularly hard for Columbo to pinpoint the killer because all the data indicates the killer was his ex-wife, but that's not the case.
