Critic Reviews of "Murder By Death"VarietyOctober 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.Chicago ReaderOctober 03, 2007
Stunningly unfunny.Time OutJune 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.New York TimesMay 09, 2005
As light and insubstantial as one could wish.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsDecember 27, 2015
If it was funny, I missed it.TV GuideOctober 03, 2007
This spoof of the great fictional-film detectives offers consistently funny scenes.DVDJournal.comJune 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.eFilmCritic.comJuly 26, 2002
Hit & miss mystery spoof hits more often than it misses.MovieMartyr.comMarch 05, 2002
Far from great.Movie MetropolisDecember 19, 2001
...pokes fun at every old fictional detective you can think of and every cliché you've ever wanted to red pencil out of a script.
