Murder 101

Murder 101

Christian I Nyby II (2006)



Our Score
Dick Van Dyke reunites with his Diagnosis Murder director Christian Nyby II for this routine murder mystery. Bringing his customary warmth and charm to the role of bumbling criminology expert Jonathan Maxwell, Van Dyke stars alongside his real-life son, Barry (who plays a private eye). Together, the duo enjoy an easy chemistry as they try to prove the innocence of reporter Tracey Needham, who's accused of blowing up a successful executive. Fans of shows like Murder, She Wrote will know exactly what to expect, but despite the film's predictability it's a diverting enough entertainment.
