    "Murder is definitely a must-see for fans of the mystery genre, or anyone who just appreciates a spectacular film! I'm one to usually prefer the book over the movie, but aside from some minor name changes this adaptation is absolutely on par when it comes to captivating the audience."

    "Great Agatha Christie movie. I knew when I saw the high rating on Rotten Tomatoes that I had to see this film. It is based on Agatha Christie's play and a great adaptation that I'm glad I didn't miss. The actor performances are great too."

    "This is a okay classic movie. It has a very good cast and there is an interesting mystery. It just does not live up to what it could have been. The direction and acting could have been better considering the talent involved. There are better mystery movies out there."

    "Murder, She Said is an excellent blend of mystery and comedy. It's like a less intense version of Rear Window. Miss Maple is a great character, and it's well worth it to catch all of the films that feature her. "
