Not a bad mystery movie but not a favorite either
None of the characters seemed to have any real depth. The whodunit was okay, but we didn’t adequately get to know the suspects in order to wonder for ourselves. I thought the female lead came off as overly abrasive to the male lead, who was quite charming!
Well the ending was good….the middle and the beginning were not so good
I can’t say this murder/mystery kept me in suspense but what did keep me on the edge of my seat (and not in a good way) was that irritating non-stop musical score that played in the background. I cannot for the life of me understand that between the producers and the director that one of them would not have advised the seasoned music director, James Jandrisch, to tone it down by at least 50 percent. My gosh, why do some of these lighthearted formulaic murder/mystery films that contain a dash of romance and family dynamics almost always seem to want to make the background music attempt to lull us into falsely believing that we are watching something that is (not) comparable to the classic 1967 suspense film Wait Until Dark that starred Audrey Hepburn and Richard Crenna.
As for this film, The Gourmet Detective I much prefer the 2016 Canadian produced television crime series Private Eyes that stars Jason Priestley, and Cindy Sampson, and is now in the middle of its second successful season. (My review on Private Eyes is dated December 31st, 2016.) I am comparing The Gourmet Detective to Private Eyes as the themes of these two shows are similar. You have a professional detective being the female lead and the amateur sleuth being the male lead investigator/partner. The difference between these two shows seems to end there when it comes to the partners on screen chemistry. Mrs. Shullivan and I agree with some of the other reviewers in that actress Brooke Burns character as Detective Maggie Price, comes off as a real hard nose no nonsense single mom, and her amateur sleuth partner Henry Ross (played admirably by Dylan Neal) who is much more friendly and talkative partner is continually being told to shut up by Maggie.
The films pretense is sort of a poor man’s version of the 1978 comedy/mystery “Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?” A few of the culinary greats are being knocked off and it is up to Maggie to work with her talkative know it all amateur sleuth partner Henry to solve this whodunit.
As I opened my review I will repeat that I found the background musical score extremely irritating and it distracted from the storyline, sometimes even attempting to challenge whether this film should be classified as a musical rather than what was intended which was a lighthearted murder mystery.
The positive about this film is that it ended on a very happy family note and for that I raised my score from a 3 to a 4.
