Kellie Martin and Nina Siemaszko in Mystery Woman: Sing Me a Murder (2005)

Rambling About The Ramblers

When a former colleague of Philby's (Clarence Williams III) dies following retirement it makes him fear official retirement and causes him to start consulting for his former hush hush employer. Meanwhile Samantha gives permission to The Ramblers, a 70s folk band, to do a charity gig in her book store. But when their manager Jason (Brad Rowe) is found murdered in his hotel room it leads to Samantha and Philby getting in to solving the case as Chief Connors (Casey Sander) is happy to settle on the simplest of solutions.

You could take what I am about to say as either a good thing or a bad thing; "Mystery Woman: Sing Me a Murder" is a regular episode from the "Mystery Woman" series of movies. As such for some this will be a good thing as it means easy going crime solving with the lovely Kellie Martin doing the detective work whilst regulars Clarence Williams III, Nina Siemaszko and Casey Sander showing up in their supporting roles. But for those hoping for anything more may find this all a bit too familiar and to be honest slow going.

That though hints at what is an issue with "Mystery Woman: Sing Me a Murder" as whilst it fits into the "easy to watch" group of made for TV murder mystery movies this is one where it is full of secrets and lots of talking. It just goes too far with too much exposition and not enough leg work to the point there are scenes where the director resorts to basic camera trickery to bring some energy to it.

What this all boils down to is that "Mystery Woman: Sing Me a Murder" is still entertaining if you are a fan of the "Mystery Woman" series of movies but due to its wordy nature it isn't one of the better one.
