I was looking for a TV movie to watch as a change of pace from my usual vintage Hollywood feature fare. Soon, I was lured by the high IMDB ratings bestowed on Murder, She Baked: A Deadly Recipe. Most of the time, I find the ratings reliable, give or take a couple of points. But not this time. Not by a very long chalk
I always try to be charitable in grading, but this picture marks my first one star rating. Here's why:
boring and extremely lame plot line, littered with equally boring subplots, capped by a clichéd and predictable resolution to the 'mystery'.
very unconvincing and uncharismatic performances by ALL the main players
flat, witless scripting, unattractive sets, humdrum camera work, and a distinct feeling that nobody at all was directing this hodge-podge or really cared about it. Just more fodder for the small screen.
I'd never seen or heard anything about the Murder, She Baked series, but to my mind, anything modeled on the venerable Angela Lansbury series couldn't be too bad.
Boy, was I wrong. Take me back to Mrs. Fletcher and Cabot Cove, any day of the week.
