20 Things To Watch If You Loved Netflix’s Murder Mystery
We often think of Netflix for its addictive Original Series, but we cannot forget about the films. There are a lot of amazing Netflix Original Movies that are so worth streaming. One of the surprise hits is Murder Mystery. If by chance you’re not one of the millions of people who have streamed the 2019 movie featuring Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler, do it now. Then you can fill the void with these highly amusing movies like Murder Mystery.
Netflix’s Murder Mystery was likely such a hit because it was funny, had a great cast, was a bit ironic, and it had mystery without the keep-you-up-at-night drama that some darker, more intense “proper” mystery dramas can have. Luckily for us, there are a number of other light-hearted movies that combine intrigue with belly laughs. There are also some fantastic picks if you want a little more Jennifer Aniston and/or Adam Sandler in your life. (Because, who doesn’t want more of them?) Here are 20 great movies like Murder Mystery.
The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!
Like Murder Mystery, The Naked Gun is one of those highly entertaining mystery-cop movies. In fact, some people might argue that it is the OG in the category because of how iconic it has become. The first film in the series was 1988’s The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!. Bumbling detective Frank Drebin (the amazing Leslie Nielsen) tries to uncover a plan to assassinate Queen Elizabeth II, who is currently on a state visit to the USA. What could possibly go wrong? One of the prime suspects in the film appears to be using a hypnotic device to turn people into murderers so we’re in some tricky territory. The movie spoofs on the 1977 Telefon film, but it really doesn’t matter if you’ve seen it or not. You’ll still be laughing and following along.
