So boring that I couldn't finish it.

In all fairness, I only watched for about 30 minutes, but even for a free Netflix stream it was unwatchable.

Just boring .

It was just entirely too slow and quit honestly, just down-right boring.

It was fun, funny and also kept me on the edge of my seat.

The worst movie I've ever seen.

Don't waste your time...

(Flash Review)This was actually amusing, engaging and simply fun.

Don't waste your time.

Predictable, lack of drama, not so good dialogs and a couple of stars.

"Murder Mystery" is an enjoyable, funny lark: an Agatha Christie- style whodunnit mystery spoof that surprises for being a well-made film.

Started off slow and never picked up speed.

wonderful, snappy, witty, silly, good writing done so well...

Very simple premise but is actually entertaining.

The easy accessibility of this movie, with it being on Netflix, is probably the main cause for its mass viewing, however I will give it credit for being an enjoyable, and unique watch.

Worth watching.

What a absolute waste of time .

There's so many characters but all of them are so flat and boring.

The comedy is over the top, but very enjoyable.

So I give an 8 for it, because they made it to be a "cliche murder mystery movie".

It has the elements you would expect of a movie of this type with great actors but really bad writing and boring and predictable story.

Entertaining enough - Aniston as always elevates the proceedings .

Not funny, predictable plot and irritating dialogues.

I found this movie very enjoyable it has an Agatha Christie vibe to it Adam sandler and Jennifer aniston have great chemistry it's worth a watch

This was an entertaining, light movie.

Before the climax, the movie was just boring and almost wearing out my patience to keep watching.

Action was boring, acting was pour and result was predictable.

Enjoyed it.

Consistently entertaining and surprisingly good.

One of the worst movies on Netflix.

If you're bored and just want to have something to watch that you don't necessarily want to see every minute...


As a netflix movie it was really enjoyable Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston is double combo.

It is enjoyable movie when you are tired of everything and just wanna watch something mindless.

The efforts to give a European Vacation kind of comic touch to a wanna be Arthur Conan Doyle style mystery, the movie some where loses the plot and becomes a drab affair.

There are no funny moments in this script, the formula is very predictable and storyline completely arbitrary.

One of the worst movies i ever saw .

This Sandler/Aniston pairing is a harmlessly enjoyable romp, with believable chemistry between the two leads.


The 2 main actors look like they're extremely bored and hate being there.

but I must say this is a very entertaining movie.

I quite enjoyed it.

Very entertaining .

Yes, the plot is cliche and I think that's the whole point.

For me, it was a waste of time, believe me, you have to be so childish to laugh at it.

* The pacing was fast and entertaining.

Really fun and entertaining.

This film was long and drawn out with little humor and zero suspense.

I enjoyed it.

It was boring.

And while I see some of the points they are making - nothing new here, formulaic, thin on plot, I enjoyed it.

Hackneyed, Trite, Commonplace .

I should have watched paint dry instead

Don't waste your time on this one..


It's supposed to be cliche and plain ridiculous in some parts.

For me, it was like comfort food in movie form: I love mysteries and this cast, so I enjoyed it for what it was, a fun distraction for awhile.

Bad acting, weird dialogue, they gave Adam Sandler the most boring character ever and the thing is that he didn't seem all that into his role either- he looked bored in most of the scenes and they didn't give his character hardly any backstory at all.

The best thing about this movie was the hamburger I had for lunch while watching this masterpiece of boredom.

The acting is ok- level and the storyline is enjoyable.

Easily dripping with Adam Sandler's distinct brand of off colour comedy (Though not as thick as some of his raunchier comedies, it's definitely present and it pairs well with Jennifer Aniston's quirky comedic energy, as well as the rest of the cast), the movie does well to present a dramatic and serious atmosphere complete with fantastic cinematography and beautiful set pieces, that gives the entire movie a deeply enjoyable feeling of sincerity in it's satire of classic murder mysteries.

Entertaining mystery .

This could easily be one of worst movies ever.

Worst movie Iv ever seen, Badly written, badly acted, jokes forced, cliched and dull

It plays on all the ideas of a class murder mystery novel - a murder in a closed setting with a group of suspects, each a fascinating character with a strong motive to commit the crime.

The chemistry between Aniston and Sandler made it somewhat enjoyable but it couldnt save it from being a rather tedious movie.

The worst movie I've ever seen .

The acting was on pair with some of Adam and Jennifer's better films and the over all plot line was exciting and left you wondering up to the end how it would play out!

Frankly, enjoyed it .


No, but it was entertaining and enjoyable which is what they wanted to achieve.

Entertaining: Sandler Resurgence.

With that same unorthodox method and repetitive familiar jokes and goofy flirty language, the film suffers the same consequences.

Entertaining .

Boring Mystery .

The introduction is attractive but the movie ends up being very boring.

Not funny, boring, pathetic.

So boring and unfunny that I couldn't finish it.

It's like a bad cliche of the classic movie of Clue which was great.

Enjoyable and nice escapism .

Such a waste of my time .

Very enjoyable.

Boring .

The story line was totally predictable but that's why it's an easy, enjoyable watch.

Waste of money and time!

" I was surprised to say that I really enjoyed it!

Boring as hell, unfunny, poor script and even Sandler and Aniston sucked.

It's entertaining .

Surprisingly entertaining .

The last like 20-30 minutes of the movie were actually quite entertaining in a way that brought it up from like a 3 to a 6, Sandler finally started giving a **** and we laughed more in the last twenty minutes than the entire movie.

It was actually really boring, and Adam Sandler is not really that good in this.

Very entertaining and always love movies with Jennifer Aniston.

Entertaining .

This was an enjoyable film that was lighthearted and reminded me of Murder She Wrote the classic tv series.

Completely waste of time.

We had the Americans, the English one, the Welsh one, the Japanese one, the Finish one, the Indian one, the Mexican one, the French one, etc.(-) Cons:* The first 10 minutes were pretty boring.

Characters: This is literally gonna be the most dull character section I have ever written.

An Entertaining Murder Mystery Movie .

The dialogue is so rambling, un-funny, and pointless that I think it would have been better if the actors improvised.

To be honest this isn't a deep complicated movie, people expect it to be a masterpiece when it's just as entertaining as a comedy can be.

A nice, entertaining movie.

The plot is boring and unpredictable, the once-great Adam Sandler merely going through the motions, uninspired and indifferent.

Overall, very engaging- a screwball comedy hitting the strike zone of exactly what it is.

The good parts of the movie, spoilt by the predictable jokes he brings, that's just went on and on.

All the performances varied from fine, to just plain bland, and some just plain terrible and racist.

If you're looking for an easy, entertaining watch, Adam and Jennifer got you covered!

The only boring thing is quick talkative character of Splits couple.

Their casual attitude to certain events in the film and the husband's unexpected creativity added a fresh element to this comedy.

It uses stock characters and stock plot devices, toward an entirely predictable conclusion.

The lack of plot and script just enhances how undefeated Aniston's charm is - she still manages to pull off a likable character.

Absolute Unfunny Snooze Fest!

Highly recommend it keeps you entertained the entire movie.

Lame and dull .

Cute & ridiculous but I truly enjoyed it.

Very much worth watching .

A most enjoyable silliness .

It's worth the watch.

Very Entertaining Film .

Entertaining .

Not a super interesting unique plot, but it's a funny entertaining movie.

Definitely worth watching.

This film deserves a good rating to say thanks for the entertaining moment it affords the viewer.

such a waste of time .

Even so, this is a fairly interesting story with some interesting characters and worth the watch.

Enjoyable movie

Sandler always comes up with unique storylines and, like his other movies, it was enjoyable and fun.

Don't waste your time guys just go and watch something else!

A complete waste of my time and their money.

The production seemed good and worth it but the lines and situations was stupidly cliche and I am sorry I wasted my time.

All in all a film well worth watching.

Bored with her ordinary existence, Jen is craving for some action/adventure in life and is some what underwhelmed by her sooo predictable hubby.

Of course, there has to be the predictable incompetent Interpol gendarme chasing the wrong people for the crimes.

Don't waste your time watching this!

It's unwatchable, not even funny, nor interesting.

Waste of money, Trash.

Some parts were a little funny but I did get bored half way through the film I hope there both u do better film next time

The pair up with Jennifer Aniston turned out to be perfect, as Jennifer is a queen of sitcom comedy herself, you can see that she immersed herself perfectly in the comedy world of Adam Sandler.

This was genuinely simply entertaining.

Entertaining .

But after that-yawn.

But it's entertaining enough to watch.

Enjoyable .

Very entertaining and funny .

Is the film enjoyable?

This was soooo entertaining.

Sandler & Aniston are great and with a great cast it kept us on the edge of our seat

This was surprisingly fun to watch and entertaining.

It's funny, the action scenes are exciting, and the chemistry is great between the actors.

It's funny and the mystery is very predictable yes but still entertaining so if you like this genre ( which almost everyone likes ) and if you like Jennifer Aniston ( and you SHOULD😂) watch it.

I enjoyed much watching this movie, its really worth to watch.. really entertaining and fun.. Nice mixed of action comedy genre.. nice one.

Of course, the movie's main objective is still to make you laugh, and that's something it does handsomely throughout, furthered by its deliriously entertaining fast pacing, featuring great action that actually had me on the edge of my seat while laughing away.

A quite enjoyable movie, I found it to be a gentle comedy.

it's trying to be an over-the-top and absurd comedy of a couple who go on an impromptu vacation and end up in a murder mystery that's as cliche as the books Anniston's character reads in the movie.

Beautiful Entertaining Movie.

It's a perfect movie for when you're bored, just opened a six-pack, and got your hands so deep in the pringles tube that you think you've reached another dimension.

Very entertaining and funny.

Other than that, it was still entertaining.

It was that slow to get to the point I felt like I was sitting through the entire stone age again.

Boring .

It's a mildly funny, fairly entertaining tale of a NYPD cop, who continues to fail to make detective, who gets shamed into finally taking his wife on a European honeymoon.

Funny and exciting it keeps you entertained and guessing along.

Only worth watching if you're really bored.

One of the worst movies .

Aniston can pull off bored wife better than anyone.

Since a long time Adam Sandler hasn't had a Box Office hit, recently, he tends to make a stupid movies not befitting him, "Murder Mystery" is dumb and pointless, it wastes a talented cast, Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston last seen together in "Just Go with It" and actually it was more funny than this one.

Fell asleep through the movie.

Predictable Mediocrity .

Pointless drivel, stupid, unfunny, boring and moronic.

Very funny and enjoyable .

Chewing gum for the eyes but I quite enjoyed it.

This movie was actually funny I enjoyed it for a comedy.

Watch paint dry instead.

It was somewhat simple, but enjoyable, and the acting was solid.

Boring, unfunny and entirely unimaginative.

Not amazing, but entertaining.

The best thing about this movie was the chemistry between Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, the comedy was quite good all along the movie , and the ending was unpredictable and that makes the movie better and better!

Sandler and Aniston are not funny, the dialogue is cringeworthy, and the plot is formulaic and predictable.

Entertaining and funny, with no plot holes or loose ends, definitely worth a watch.

Worth watching.

This film is entertaining, fun, and very enjoyable.


You have to be really bored to wanna watch this movie.

And that Netflix wants to be a part of the Academy when they produce for television the most banal movie.

but this one falls in to the entertaining and actually funny type of adam Sandler movie from old...

Entertaining .

It had the right amount of plot, humour and intrigue to keep things moving at an enjoyable pace for the light romp that it was.

It may only help you fall asleep.

We enjoyed it and laughed with our children.

Unpredictable .

Worth watching if you like Adam Sanler or Jennifer Aniston.


While the cliche who's the murderer is the basic storyline for the film it is made funny by a great comedy duo, with many laughs and a great cast this film may not be a amazing one, but it sure has you on the edge of your seat wanting more!

Complete waste of time, cannot believe so many people are giving it 8/10, 9/10.. is this the first movie these people have seen?!

In fact, this movie does a pretty good job of rehashing her standard formula and making it entertaining and accessible to a new generation.

Murder Mystery is a fun take on your traditional murder mystery that is entertaining throughout.

Plot was cute and entertaining, definitely not winning any awards.

The whole feel of the movie is so light and comical despite being about a very suspenseful and gritty genre.

Just boring, outdated humor.

The easy storyline was still exciting and enjoyable, the actors' performamces were great (my personal highlight was David Walliams' mini appearance, I love him!

Plus aniston and sandler as a marriage of bored regulars is super funny and works very well.

Not amazing, but pretty entertaining.

Super boring and unfunny

To my surprise, I found it to be a very entertaining with good mystery twists and plenty of humor to spare.

The film was action packed and well paced from start to finish.

All the jokes were cliche or just plain bad.

Occasionally Funny but also boring .

To watch them in a movie like this, where there are many murders, stress and "scary" moments is so fascinating.

Just a great Adam Sandler film, very enjoyable and nice chemistry with Jennifer Aniston.

This was a very fun movie to watch and an enjoyable spoof on murder mysteries.

I enjoyed it, is it Sandler's best?

Worth watching it.

Found it funny and entertaining.

Very entertaining solid little movie.

definitely worth the watch just for the fun.

This whole "story" was a yawner...

Great cure for insomnia.

Had to turn off .

Consistently Entertaining .

The beautiful scenery, the plot twists and the amazing yacht also makes the film even more entertaining.

This movie is a waste of time.

Sandler and Aniston, an overrated duo, play the same dull characters they always do, trying way too hard to be quirky and funny, and failing miserably.

Worst movie in years .

It is just stupid, unfunny and bland.

It's not god tier Sandler like in Sandy Wexler, but it does deliver an entertaining evening in, as opposed to standing outside in the cold.

It is quite riveting and it definitely entertains.

Yawn .

I don't understand the bad reviews, it is a very entertaining, funny, sweet movie.

Boring .

It's terrible but I still enjoyed it .

Average film overall,but if you are bored and want to pass your time.

Enjoyable with some good laughs.

)if you're looking for something to watch on a weekday evening, or bored on the weekend, it's worth a watch..

An Enjoyable Whodunnit Comedy .

Its like when you go to your in laws for Christmas and are forced to play charades; pointless, tedious and forced frivolity.

Story is predictable.

Great production value (sets, locations, yachts, etc) and decent directing, but the writing was bland and infantile.

However, the action sequences were surprisingly entertaining, the cast was game, and the chemistry between Jen and Adam was natural and ultimately probably saved the movie (much like Just Go With It).

I enjoyed it.

If you're in the mood for some really bad cliche slapstick....

I throughly enjoyed it and laughed often.

Also the movie is fast paced and you don't muvh time to think.

But it is worth watching once.

The first 30 minutes of this movie were funny and entertaining and it seemed like it was building towards something special....

It was going nowhere, even after 50 minutes.


It will pass the time harmlessly on a rainy day & is entertaining if rather silly & totally unbelievable with it's wafer thin characters.

I've watched many Adam Sandler films and I do love a good comedy and I've been a fan of Jennifer Aniston's since Friends and I love a murder mystery film and this one was entertaining, guessing each scene and enjoyable from start to finish.

The plot was so banal that I found myself drifting into an analysis of what work Anniston had done to her face.

Average, but entertaining .

The rest of the cast were quite engaging and by the end of the movie, you wish this could be a franchise and longing for a part 2 !

The film had many laugh-out-loud moments, and we were very satisfied and happy with this enjoyable film.

no harm in watching it, it's quite enjoyable and entertaining

If you are looking for a movie that is intriguing, fun, and all around hilarious then this is for you!

Delightfully silly, funny and even exciting at times .

Critics can go dance with themselves,but for rest of us rational folks.. this movie is worth watching once.

I Enjoyed this, for The most part, it was cool having an Agatha Christie Mystery with A Modern spin on it also all the characters were compelling and it did have great Comedy overall A Comedic Take on Classic Whodunit Murder MysteryGreat Costume Design By Renee April(Blade Runner 2049)and Score By Rupert Gregson-Williams(Aquaman) Cinematography By Amir Mokri(Once Upon A Time In Venice) and Direction by Kyle Newacheck(Game Over Man) l A Comedic Take on Classic Whodunit Murder Mystery 8/10

I enjoyed it a lot.

Funny, fast paced, action movie ...

Possibly worst movie ever.

Thank God for the interactive play bar which allows you skip forward and waste as little time possible on such shallow and stupid entertainment.

Another cliche-bounded flick falling down the Netflix heaven.

No matter, the movie is entertaining with Monaco as the the backdrop, while the famed Formula 1 race takes place through the city streets of Monte Carlo.

Teally really bad and boring .

Such a waste of money and talent.

This film was a boring, half-assed attempt at a murder mystery film, packed full of the basic Sandler comedy which many have grown to dislike.

An classic, stereotypical non-pretentious kind of movie that doesn't aspire to be anything that it isn't.

This movie wasn't phenomenal, but thoroughly entertaining and had some twists.

And to be honest, going in, expecting exactly what I got, I actually enjoyed it.

Its horrible waste of time.

I did not expect this one to be a good movie, It is so much entertaining from start to end, really enjoyable with actions and thrills.

Pretty boring.

The script is a mess, the characters are boring and the chemistry is lacking between the two leads.

Others seem to have liked it, but personally I wouldn't waste your time.

The story was ridiculously predictable.

Lots of twists and turns and very entertaining.

Romantic, fast paced screwball comedy reminiscent of movies in the 30s and 40s.

The script is engaging.

It is quite cliche murder mystery movie as they wanted to make.

The plot was decent and kept me intrigued throughout, however the first 20 minutes was dull and kind of made me not want to carry on watching the movie.

Terrible acting, unfunny, boring, ridiculous, and the characters were awful!

Boring, cringeworthy and unentertaining .

Don't waste your time!!

The acting was as expected from a cast of such calibre, and while some of the dialog was a bit messy at times, it was overall an enjoyable movie.

In this formula murder mystery plot Jennifer Anniston raises the quality of the film and at times the writers deliver a good joke, but at other times it's so boring and flat, this movie has no soul, message or deeper meaning, simply people moving on screen attempting to be funny.

Such an entertaining movie .

Also, it was tedious and unbelievable when two very spoiled and self-absorbed, extremely wealthy, Hollywood movie stars attempt to act as ordinary people.

Entertaining overall.

I found this film/movie very enjoyable as both Adam Sandler and Jennifer Anniston were hilarious through out the whole of the movie, I feel that they worked very well with each other and they helped tell the story very well.

It's entertaining and easy to watch.

The parts that were in the trailer was just as funny in the moment as it was in the trailer, but the filme was still full of comedic and exciting scenes.

Jennifer Aniston always shines, and the other cast members were entertaining as well.

Just entertaining enough for a nice evening

It is quiet predictable, has some fun scenarios and the action is okay.

Waste of money & time !.

A bit overdramatic and over drawn out....

Relatively played out premise, predictable storyline, and not really ever "laugh out loud" funny.

And I enjoyed it...

Cringey set up before the first murder, but gets slightly more entertaining after that.

Annoying, dull, and a boring movie full of cringeworthy dialogues.

Much more enjoyable than I expected it to be.

predictable as ever.

Boring silly and unbelievable movie.

Even though this isnt the greatest films of all time it still is entertaining.

sandler's performance is unbearable and drags the movie down.

Trite, banal, cringeworthy .

A waste of time ...

The plot twists were honestly dumb and predictable and character behaviors in some parts didn't make sense.

Boring, predictable and annoying!

Don't waste your time.

It is a totally waste of time, I dont understand what kind of movies is netflix making

After watching, the best way I know to explain my experience was boredom, with a few chuckle out loud moments.

Light and Entertaining .

Fun, entertaining - exactly what you expect from Sandler and Aniston.

Surprisingly Enjoyable .

This movie was enjoyable from beginning to end.

If you suffer from insomnia and are looking for something to help you drift off the bed, this might just do the trick.

Anybody who's traveled internationally beyond an isolated trip or two cannot get past the ridiculous premise of these characters getting welcomed onto an exclusive billionaire yacht after a trite cougar encounter.

It is a enjoyable funny movie 100% !

I found it entertaining.

Quite funny and entertaining!

The film might not be the most intelligent or satisfyingly intricate murder mystery, but it has such a brilliantly entertaining pace and sense of humour that you'll have a blast regardless.

But the lead couple made it barely unbearable.

Entertaining screwball comedy .

Total Waste of Time .

Utter rubbish please don't waste your time.

Don't waste your time .

The story, or lack of it, makes this one of the worst movies of the year.

The plot was confusing and the ending didn't even add up.

But in general I found the story very bad and watching the movie was a waste of our time.

Daft as a brush but thoroughly enjoyable, I hope they make another one

Dont expecte an ocsar contender but a easy to watch and enjoyable enough film

Very entertaining!!

Boring and not that funny .

Take away Sandler's cop persona and this movie is just two boring characters wandering around sets with stock footage of European cities thrown in.

Also included was an unexpected collection of well known British stars.

And the Ferrari Chase even though it was totally ridiculous looked amazing and was pretty exciting.

While the film was predictable for those who are accustomed to reading whodunits, or watching true crime shows, it was quite enjoyable.

Real effort was put into this production by at least some of the people involved, this gave me the same empty feeling as Blended, Just go with it and Pixels.

Terrible but entertaining .

It's funny, entertaining and Aniston and Sandler deliver.

I enjoyed it, and I am glad I have seen it.

Not a laugh-out-loud kind of movie, but entertaining nonetheless.

An entertaining action comedy film that worth the time watching!

But more than Date Night, which takes on a slightly more generic all-night thriller premise, Murder Mystery uses its parodying of the Agatha Christie/Clue genre to great effect by telling a story that not only cleverly plays on the tropes of the premise, but also manages to craft something that's genuinely unpredictable, engrossing you to a surprising extent in the resolution of the mystery.

I was hesitant to select this movie during my perusing, but Netflix productions tend to be very engaging so I was willing to give it a try!

Adam Sandler and jenifer aniston what a cool couple they make.. movie is very funny specially some scene however it could have gonna more mystery murder movie but than that would have ruin the funny part of it but i like the movie all so entertaining .

This is in my top 3 of the worst movies i ever saw.

Except for the unbearable presence of the gorgeous Gemma Arterton.

A magnificent movie, with Jennifer Aniston (Audrey) and Adam Sandler (Nick) giving us lots of suspenseful moments.

Their acting is so enjoyable because they genuinely care about each other.

The sun-soaked European vistas are stunningly shot (as they should be) but the action sequences are clunky and bland, seemingly more of a box-ticking activity than anything else.

Really enjoyable murder mystery romp.

One time watch when bored .

Unfunny, generic, and nearly unwatchable .

Just slow, unbelievabley stupid story line.

Surprisingly entertaining .

it was very entertaining.

But, I guess you could watch it if you're super bored.

While the writing is poor, the movie is thoroughly entertaining with a good plot-twist at the end.

That's not a criticism - just a fact, and with two A-listers onboard and Aniston as always subtly adding her comic chops and legit acting skills, it makes this old-fashioned move worth watching for a pleasant 90-minute diversion.

This movie is so boring and the plot is so played out.

" While this movie won't be winning any awards, it succeeds in being an enjoyable film and a nice escape for one evening.
