VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) An Agatha Christie kind of pan-European whodunit murder-mystery with a diverse list of suspects. Instead of Hercule Poirot, it’s the bumbling couple of Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston.

 
CONS –
1) One time watch.
2) A better supporting cast would’ve been nice.

 

QUOTE –
Charles Cavendish: That is the Quince dagger. Chinese steel, jewels from across the Orient. A gift to the family from Marco Polo. Or so the legend says.
Audrey Spitz: God. Nick’s grandmother gave us a toaster from Sears. Or so the legend says.
