Netflix has set a release date for Murder Mystery 2, a crime comedy movie starring Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston. With the sequel’s release date, Netflix unveiled a synopsis that gives us some juicy plot details.
The first Murder Mystery follows New York cop Nick Spitz (Sandler), who takes his wife Audrey (Aniston) on a fancy vacation, hoping to reignite the flame of their marriage. Unfortunately, they get framed for the murder of a billionaire, forcing the couple to solve the crime and clear their names while on the run. As expected, the adventure does what the trip couldn’t do, bringing the couple close together and showing how well they can work together.
Set a while after the first film, the sequel will bring the Spitz back as they work to keep their private investigation agency afloat. Drunk with the thrills of the hunt of the first movie, the couple decided to dedicate their lives to solving crimes together. Unfortunately, it seems like business is not blooming, and the Spitz are struggling to get new cases.
To make matters worse, their friend, the Mahajara (Adeel Akhtar), is kidnapped during his own wedding, leading the couple to another wild goose chase against an unknown criminal. This new case could help put their agency on the map if they are lucky enough. And who knows, their wealthy friend might also throw a huge bounty their way if they manage to get him back.
