Four years after the original movie, Murder Mystery 2 was finally released, and did not let the watchers down. Some sequels don’t always turn out the way we hope they would, but James Vanderbilt and Jeremy Garelick did an excellent job at making this movie funny and entertaining. 

Nick (Adam Sandler) and Audrey (Jennifer Aniston), started a private agency and are trying to become detectives after solving a huge “murder mystery” (Murder Mystery). Things aren’t going according to plan because instead of solving murders, they have to solve much smaller cases. They get frustrated and almost decided to quit until they get invited to a wedding on a private island by their friend The Maharajah (Adeel Akhtar). If you have watched the first movie, you already know this won’t go well, and Nick and Audrey know this too, but they aren’t exactly upset. 

Murder seems to follow Nick and Audrey, so everybody thinks that they are to blame and they even appear on the news creating a huge target on their backs. Thankfully for them, they have strategies that allow them to outsmart the real criminals and everyone else involved. They go to huge lengths to solve this case and don’t give up, even if it is a life-or-death situation. 

The movie is kind of predictable, but it was still able to keep my attention, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching it. The humor in this movie makes it much more enjoyable to watch because it’s not so serious. It is lighthearted, and in the end, Nick and Audrey become closer and are able to settle some problems in their marriage that they had been having. 

Murder Mystery 2 ends on a good note and also leaves on a cliffhanger that could be used to create a third movie. Hopefully, they do come out with a new one because these movies don’t fail to entertain.
