Reviews
Mine: Funny, but the plot is a big distraction. Good cast helps.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Capote invites world's greatest detectives to his home and involves them in a baffling whodunit. Neil Simon spoofs such characters as Charlie Chan, Miss Marple, and Sam Spade in this enjoyable all-star comedy, with marvelous sets by Stephen Grimes. Simon followed this with THE CHEAP DETECTIVE

This is good stuff! It's hilarious and you couldn't ask for a better cast. Even the cartoons of the opening credits are done by a well-known cartoonist. Watch and see if you can figure it out.
