Comment

I liked the movie, I thought it was pretty good. The plot is based on the Agatha Christie novel "Murder on the Orient Express" which the movie did pay tribute to when the main characters rode on a train named "The Orient Express" on its last scene.

I thought the script was quite smart, not only dealing with the murder mystery itself but also tackling the marriage issues between Adam and Jennifer's characters.

Anniston as usual was superb in a comedy role while Sandler at least is funny again after a couple of so-so movies. The glamorous and exotic setting across Europe and aboard a Super Yacht also adds to the movie's value.

I'm not sure if this movie would've survived the Cinema Box Office, but in Netflix's Universe, it works superbly well. Highly recommended.

Trivia

Adam Sandler's and Jennifer Aniston's second film together. The first was Just Go with It (2011).
