After what seems like an eternity MMM is released on region 2 format. This relatively light slice of Woody New York farce is, perhaps, not his greatest artistic achievement- that accolade may be more appropriate for the likes of Annie Hall, Manhattan and Stardust Memories. That said I have always found it one of his most enjoyable films; the pairing of Allen and Keaton after so many years is a joy to watch, the chemistry between them as potent as in the mid-70's. Indeed, one can be thankful the role was not instead taken by the increasingly dour and dowdy Mia Farrow for whom it was slated (and whose divorce from Allen, along with the scandal that followed Woody's relationship with adopted daughter Soon Yi largely overshadowed the film itself). The plot -recycled from Annie Hall outtakes- revolves around Allen and Keaton's affectionately bickering middle aged couple. On the death of a recently moved-in neighbour, Keaton develops increasingly wild theories that she was murdered by her stamp collecting husband and with a typically reluctant Woody in tow, set out to prove it. As usual, the film is stuffed full of classic one liners, while the hand-held camera style (used to such great effect in Allen's previous effort "Husbands and Wives") and fast-paced direction produce a marvellously tense atmosphere. The supporting turns from Allen regulars Angelica Huston and Alan Alda are also superb. Top this off with a fantastic "hall of mirrors" finale (complete with snippets of Orson Welles' "The Lady from Shanghi") and you have a classic Allen movie. I don't know, maybe it is up there with his best....

This is one of the funnies movies I have ever seen.
Woody Allen and Diane Keaton make one of the best on-screen pair ever, they are a genuine couple of neurotics here, they are so hilarious.
The live in a NY apartment, he has a very good friend in Anjelica Huston, she has Alan Alda. One night they meet an older couple on the elevator, they live on the same floor. They begin chatting and end up speding the whole night at their place, much to Woody's displeasure, as he planned to watch some classic on tv.
Well, the next day the wife dies and Diane, after some strange clues, begins to think the husband might have killed her, and that she might even have faked her own death. Well, don't let me spoil it for you.
Basically the 4 of them try to prove it and end up in dangerous, and suspense-ful situations. All the while spitting hilarious one-liners and great music, the jazzy 20s music you usually hear in WA's movies. Especially priceless the sequence when the husband heads for the incenerators on one of the NY bridges with that great music I can never remember what it is, but it is also used in the Bette Midler movie "Big Business", is played.
Get it, it's hilarious, I've seen it almost ten times now!

This is not Woody Allen's most sophisticated film but certainly, in my opinion, his most enjoyable.Both Allen and Keaton have a ball playing bored husband and wife Carol and Larry Lipton who stumble across the suspected murder of a neighbour and from that point on comes some of Allen's funniest scenes and greatest one liners.The supporting cast is great with Alan Alda and Anjelica both playing great turns,the locations are all New York as you would expect and there is a superb jazzy score - Benny Goodman, Dave Brubeck amongst others which just adds to the already highly enjoyable mix.
But really this is Keaton and Allen' show and they are superb.How many actresses can make Allen look like he's the straight guy ? Diane Keaton can that's for sure.The chemistry between the two is pure magic. This is a film that you can watch over and over again and get as much enjoyment from each viewing.
Hope you enjoy it as much as i have.

Woody Allen's 1993 film Manhattan Murder Mystery does not, for me, rank with his very best work, but is nevertheless extremely enjoyable with some typically great Allen one-liners mixed in. The film is also notable for the fact that it reunites Allen with Diane Keaton, for their first significant coupling since 1979 when they were paired together in Allen's great masterpiece Manhattan. Incidentally, Keaton replaced Mia Farrow in the lead role for the film, following the breakdown of Farrow's relationship with Allen at the time.

As the title suggests, the film is a (very) intricately plotted murder mystery interspersed with great comedy acting by the main protagonists Allen as Larry Lipton, a publishing executive, and Keaton his wife Carol, who proves to be a very enthusiastic amateur sleuth. The plot centres on suspicions that Carol has that the apparently straightforward death by heart attack of one of their neighbours is actually a murder committed by the husband Paul House (superbly played by Jerry Adler, later star of The Sopranos TV series). Along with friend Ted (another great performance in an Allen film by Alan Alda, following that in Crimes and Misdemeanours) Carol dreams up numerous possible murder schemes, to Larry's total disbelief, until Larry becomes convinced all is not as it seems when he and Carol spot Mrs House still alive.
