  • Critic Reviews of "Murder By Death"

    October 03, 2007

    Murder by Death is a very good silly-funny Neil Simon satirical comedy, with a super all-star cast cavorting as recognizable pulp fiction detectives gathered at the home of Truman Capote, wealthy hedonist fed up with contrived gumshoe plots.

    Stunningly unfunny.

    Time Out
    June 24, 2006

    Director Moore and writer Neil Simon seem to have no real affection for either the characters they plunder mercilessly for laughs, or the locked room puzzle they turn on its head. Introductions over, the film slides downhill.

    As light and insubstantial as one could wish.

    If it was funny, I missed it.

    TV Guide
    October 03, 2007

    This spoof of the great fictional-film detectives offers consistently funny scenes.
    June 27, 2006

    So it all doesn't amount to much, and -- some knuckle-dragging 'he's gay'/'no I'm not' humor aside -- it's more Scooby Doo than Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Still, it's an amusing tea-cozy of a spoof with an enjoyable cast.

    Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
    June 16, 2003

    Generally successful send-up of classic mysteries with a lame finale.

    Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
    January 02, 2003

    A sometime funny satire on the old murder-mystery detective series of the 1930s and '40s. Some jokes hit, while others just bomb.
    July 26, 2002

    Hit & miss mystery spoof hits more often than it misses.
    March 05, 2002

    Far from great.

    Movie Metropolis
    December 19, 2001

    ...pokes fun at every old fictional detective you can think of and every clichƩ you've ever wanted to red pencil out of a script.
