What would a list of mystery movies and shows be without the hit Netflix original movie with the word “mystery” literally in its title? Back in 2019, Just Go with It co-stars Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston reunited for the comedy film Murder Mystery, a take on that famous title that’s exactly as it sounds. Obviously, it’s one of the best mystery movies to watch on Netflix.

Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston star in Murder Mystery as married couple Nick and Audrey Spitz, who had always planned to visit Europe per a wedding promise but never had the opportunity to travel overseas. For their 15th anniversary, the couple finally makes the trip to Europe, where they’re suddenly swept up as suspects in the murder of a billionaire.

Murder Mystery arrived with intrigue simply due to its star, but the mystery-comedy earned middling reception from critics. Still, the film managed to become a huge hit for Netflix, racking up the streamer’s biggest opening weekend for an original film and ranking in the top five of the most-watched original films. Naturally, a sequel is on the way with more murder, more mystery and more laughs.
