Murder Mystery is an American comedy-mystery movie coming out in 2019. It was written and directed by Kyle Newacheck. Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston, and Luke Evans play a married couple who get involved in a murder investigation on a billionaire’s yacht. It came out on Netflix on June 14, 2019.
The Plot of Murder Mystery
Nick Spitz is a police officer in New York, and his wife, Audrey, cuts hair. Audrey wants to go to Europe as Nick promised at their wedding, but she doesn’t think they will ever get to go. After their 15th anniversary dinner, Audrey talks to Nick about how he didn’t book the trip. Nick lies and says that he did, so they go to Europe.
Audrey meets billionaire Charles Cavendish on the plane, and he invites her and her husband to join him on his family’s yacht for a party to celebrate his elderly uncle’s upcoming wedding to Charles’s ex-girlfriend. Nick agrees after hearing how crowded and uncomfortable their bus tour would be.
Nick and Audrey meet Cavendish’s ex-girlfriend Suzi Nakamura, his cousin and Quince’s son Tobey, actress Grace Ballard, Colonel Ulenga, and his bodyguard Sergei, Maharajah Vikram, and race car driver Juan Carlos on the yacht. Later that night, their host, Cavendish’s uncle Malcolm Quince, arrives. Quince says that only his new wife Suzi will get his inheritance.
He thinks that the others only pretend to like him because of his money. The lights go out and back on, revealing Quince dead, stabbed with a ceremonial knife before he can write his new will.
Nick has lied to Audrey about being a new NYPD detective. He then tells the guests to go back to their rooms and locks the room. Later that night, the guests find Tobey’s body. It looks like he killed himself. Inspector de la Croix questions the guests when they get to Monte Carlo. He thinks that Nick and Audrey, “the Americans,” killed the people.
Nick and Audrey ask people questions at the Monaco Grand Prix. That night, Sergei calls them to his room and tells them that Quince had married the Colonel’s fiancée while the Colonel was in a coma after saving Quince’s life. This led to her death and a child that was supposedly stillborn. When someone knocks on the door, the couple hides.
When they come out, Sergei has been shot. They climb bravely out the window and walk along the edge of the ledge, which is high above the ground. During this process, they see the Colonel vigorously flossing his teeth and Maharajah and Grace kissing in his room.
This makes it unlikely that any of them killed Sergei. As they run away, they hear on the news that de la Croix has issued an arrest warrant for them. Audrey is angry when she finds out that Nick is not a detective and that he lied about booking the trip in advance. She leaves with Cavendish after learning this.

In June 2012, it was said that Charlize Theron had agreed to be in Murder Mystery, a mystery-comedy that was going to be directed by John Madden and based on a screenplay by James Vanderbilt.
Before the announcement, the project was set up at Walt Disney Studios, and Kevin McDonald was set to direct it. In April 2013, it was said that Colin Firth, Adam Sandler, and Emily Blunt had joined the cast, but representatives for Firth and Blunt denied that they were joining the film.
In September 2013, it was said that both Theron and Madden had left the project and that Anne Fletcher would now direct for TWC-Dimension. Theron eventually got an executive producer credit on the film, and her studio, Denver and Delilah Productions, was also listed in the film.
In March 2018, it was announced that Sandler and Jennifer Aniston had signed on to star, making this their first movie together since Just Go with It in 2011. Kyle Newacheck was in charge of directing the movie, which was still written by Vanderbilt.
