A tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie and a fun, modern-day murder mystery where everyone is a suspect. When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan's dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan's untimely death.

I really liked this movie! The cast and story is solid. I hope for a sequel for this one!

My husband and I went into this movie with the expectation it was going to be like Clue and Murder on the Orient Express. While, yes it is over the top in that way sometimes, we both were pleasantly surprised! We really enjoyed it! My husband now would compare it to a Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney video game - if you've ever played those games, you'll understand what I mean, and maybe that will help you decide to give this movie a watch!

Really disappointing.

Mr. Swart: Mr. Opawesome, what's your favorite movie?
Me: Oh, it is always going to be Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Mr. Swart: Good choice! An action/adventure film implementing fictional & nonfictional elements.

Me: KNIVES OUT IS NOW MY FAVORITE MOVIE!

Daniel Craig’s “southern” accent does a great disservice to both the film and Daniel Craig.

IT WAS NEVER COLONEL [expletive] MUSTARD [expletive] AND THERE
AIN'T NO [expletive] CANDLESTICK!!!
Great cast, applause all round; Evans escaping his Captain America role as Hydra Cap this time, Shannon showing more his comic chops, Collete crusing along and Craig dusting off his Ozark-ian to settle in.
The triumph here, is no threat of a sequel; it gets it all done in one. Might just be a drinking game in it, worth the watch to make it up as you go...

TH and I thought it was a good send-up of Hollywood style who-done-it murder mysteries. Unreliable narrators abound in this tale of murder, mayhem and greed. It was nice to see Chris Evans play against type and we thought Daniel Craig enjoyed playing this detective, who is definitely no James Bond. Although his Southern accent could have used some work (another character comments on his "foghorn leghorn speech".

Overtly political. At best, an collection of semi-amusing scenes, including two fun monologues by a central character. At worst, overblown, clichéd characters maneuvering their way through an illogical plot with improbable tangents.

A fantastic who-dun-it that has all the elements of an Agatha Christie story. The gothic mansion, the reclusive author, the privileged family on the verge of being cut from the will, and of course the obligatory body found in the study. Just when you think the murderer just might get away with it, the brilliant detective gathers the suspects for the big reveal.

"Because if you think that after all the bridges you burned. After all the *hi* said. After everything that you put this family through for the last years. That any of us are gonna support you. That any of us are gonna give you like dad like to say "A single red dime." YOU'RE NUTS!"

"I spoke in the car about the hole at the center of this doughnut. And yes, what you and Harlan did that fateful night seems at first glance to fill that hole perfectly. A doughnut hole in the doughnut's hole. But we must look a little closer. And when we do, we see that the doughnut hole has a hole in its center - it is not a doughnut hole at all but a smaller doughnut with its own hole, and our doughnut is not a hole at all!"

I read a tweet about a New Yorker article about you. You’re famous.

Marta Cabrera: I've never been to a will reading before.

Benoit Blanc: Think of it as a tax return performed by a community theater.

28 quotes in IMDb and they are all good. Thanks to its contributors. There are no doubt a few more memorable depending on one's interest. e.g.

One thing I assume of age is weariness. Damned if I don't get more tired every day. Tired of what I do. Following arcs like lobbed rocks, the inevitability of truth. But the complexity and the gray lie not in the truth but what you do with the truth once you have it.
