Neil Simon's Murder by Death

I've seen this movie as a kid but only in part and, being a kid, did not know who the characters were supposed to be and couldn't really enjoy it (interestingly, I did remember a good deal of it including the fact that the DVD that was lent to me of it had one missing scene, and it wasn't even included on the special features!). It is a cute little story about thinly veiled great detectives of fiction put to the test to solve a murder. Still, probably cause it is dated, it isn't hysterically funny, and the mystery involved isn't clever enough for those who read enough mysteries to find the meta-contextual commentary particularly interesting. Not bad, but certainly not good enough to fully recommend.
