Very dislikable main characters... I wanted to hit them both in the face.
Manhattan Murder Mystery features Woody Allen and Diane Keaton as a couple trying to solve the possible murder of a neighbor, completely hapless armchair detectives whose main skill is thinking things seem suspicious. In the background are flirtations between the couple and would-be lovers, a situation that exacerbates the frantic mood of the film. As we navigate the complicated murder plot (if indeed it is such), the characters talk all over each other, arguing and joking all the way, and the camera is as frantic as they are. It can get a bit overwhelming. But the movie deserves its franticness. It's essentially a midlife crisis story, where the mystery to be solved is a stand-in for the excitement missing in a marriage, where Sherlock must reconnect with his proper Watson, so to speak. Woody Allen's directorial energy is at once nervous and vivacious in that respect, but the film nevertheless felt a little long because of it.
This is a great comedic murder mystery film. Diane Keaton is beautiful and funny also Woody Allen, I love the reference from "The lady from Shanghai".
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
