Murder Mystery killed me, get it (I’m hilarious).  Netflix has taken out the big guns.  They pulled in the late 90’s rom-com dream team, Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler and brought us a ridiculous play on the classic murder mystery.  

I had already seen these two together in Just Go With It, (which for those who haven’t seen it- low key hilarious) so I knew what they were capable of.  The storyline had me feeling a little iffy about it:

“On a long-awaited trip to Europe, a New York City cop and his hairdresser wife scramble to solve a baffling murder aboard a billionaire’s yacht”

Right? It sounds a little cliche, and a little been there done that.  I mean even Saved By the Bell had a murder mystery episode.   What it leaves out is how hard they go into the genre. It’s like they took the game Clue, multiplied it to the point of absurdity- and it really works.  The characters are stereotypical and ludicrous. The story keeps moving and Jen {I can call her that} and Sandler just hit it out of the park.

It’s a great one to put on when you want to unwind and laugh for an hour and a half.
