The premise of Murder Mystery

When a NYC cop (Adam Sandler) finally takes his wife (Jennifer Aniston) on a long-promised European trip, a chance meeting on the flight with a mysterious man (Luke Evans) gets them invited to an intimate family gathering on the Super Yacht of elderly billionaire Malcolm Quince. When Quince is murdered, they become the prime suspects in a modern day whodunit.
As you can guess by the premise, expect many played out gags led by Adam Sandler, which will either land or fail like a flat tyre for the Netflix film Murder Mystery.

Yes Adam, getting paid to film in luxury sets is the life.
