Murder Mystery for 11 Year olds

I loved this movie! It's amazing! There is sex, violence, bloody images, etc. I think that 11 year old kids can watch this movie because they've most likely already been exposed to this kind of stuff. I think that kids watching the movie need to understand that its just a movie, and nothing more. Most eleven year old kids should be mature enough to watch the movie.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (21):
Kids say (58):

A step up from earlier Netflix-Sandler collaborations that celebrated raunchy, gross-out humor, this mildly entertaining film is an attempt to spoof old-fashioned murder mysteries. It showcases the comic strengths of its two stars; Aniston is particularly funny in a very earnest way while Sandler prefers the bonehead approach, but both work. Led by director Kyle Newacheck, Murder Mystery presents lots of familiar situations common to the genre -- suspects gathered together and eliminated one by one, extended chase sequences, a scramble to safety on a high window ledge -- and they're effective, but routine. Everyone seems to be having a great time as the prime suspects (and all the cast and crew) get to make their magic in some of the most beautiful places on the Mediterranean Sea.
