Murder Mystery Movie Review: No humor in Jennifer Aniston, Adam Sandler film



Actors: Jennifer Aniston, Adam Sandler, Luke Evans

Directed by Kyle Newacheck

Netflix & # 39; s thrillerJennifer Aniston-Adam Sandler's new film never delivers what it promises – a decent American romantic comedy that is complemented by a clever European-based whodunit.

As it continues to stall on several fronts, aside from shot locations and a tight script, you are presented with an end result that you could not care less about. A half-baked thriller like a thriller and an unsuccessful attempt at a dialogue-driven comedy between Aniston and Sandler make up much of this 100-minute film, which relies heavily on men and women quarreling to revive the plot.

The good thing is that you can make films on the web for which enthusiastic fans have long stopped buying tickets. So here is your guilt feelings, only predictable and unpleasant.

Observe thriller Trailer here:

Audrey Spitz (Aniston) is obsessed with crime novels and is looking for thrills beyond the mediocre marital life. Her attachment to her husband ages between unkempt promises and the diminishing element of surprise. Her humble husband, Nick Spitz, is played by Adam Sandler, an unreliable cop from the New York City Police Department.

He's been bluffing his promotion for over a year, while she's always dreaming of a better, first-class upgrade. No spoilers, but their chemistry generally leaves the mistrust ratio high in modern human relationships.

Audrey is invited to a weekend party on a yacht by Charles Cavendish (Luke Evans). She gives in and sees that this is her only chance in life to get on a boat. Next, a rich man (Malcolm Quince) is murdered for money and this triggers a series of deaths that Audrey and Nick have to justify in view of possible motives among the guests to take the blame off their shoulders.

After a murder is in sight and her own life is at stake, Nick finally has a chance to prove to himself and his wife that he's not just a beaten up cop. But the character relies so heavily on Sandler's quick speaking, know-it-all, hideous comedy that he cuts off as a miserable middle-aged ruin who brings Audrey down – basically – a credible and naive character.


Aniston plays Audrey with the passive innocence of a disappointed woman and plays a real feat. Their brightening presence and detective skills are what make them special thriller A satisfying experience, and beyond that, it's just a sitcom-level script that builds on star power and gender stereotypes so as not to score. Actors don't try to do something that feels outside of the comfortable genre tropes, and a monotonous story just makes the charade look fake.

thriller is an overwhelming time in comedy and an excruciating and limited attempt to tell stories. It seems inviting, but it's not rewarding.

Rating: 2/5
