Set Sail with Hallmark Movie Channel in... "The Mystery Cruise"


MOVIE REVIEW

The Mystery Cruise

Network: Hallmark Movie Channel

Original Air Date: October 5, 2013

"The Mystery Cruise" is available to *STREAM HERE*!

*Based on the book “The Santa Cruise” by New York Times bestselling authors, Mary Higgins Clark and her daughter, Carol Higgins Clark.






CAST:

Gail O’Grady ... Alvirah Meehan
Michelle Harrison ... Regan Reilly
Colleen Winton ... Nora Reilly


PLOT:

via Hallmark:

“The Mystery Cruise” centers on best friends and impending partners, Alvirah Meehan (O’Grady), a lottery winner turned amateur sleuth and Regan Reilly (Harrison), a private investigator. After the two heroines rescue the diamond-collared pooch of a wealthy socialite (played by Carol Higgins Clark), they set off with their spouses to join Regan’s mom, Nora Reilly (Colleen Winton, “The 4400”), a world famous mystery writer, on a luxurious three day cruise around the San Juan Island off the coast of Washington, the setting for a mystery game created to promote the release of Nora’s latest book. As the boat calmly sets sail, everyone is enjoying getting into character, especially Alvirah, who may or may not be the “murderess” in the mystery game. But troubled waters lie ahead when Alvirah gets a hunch that a real killer may be on board and together with Regan the pair teams up to take the killer down.

Back on the mainland, Alvirah and Regan hang out their shingle in their fabulous Manhattan office to continue their sleuthing and crime fighting ways!

Movie Review:

When a murder mystery games turns into real murder during their "leisurely" cruise, best friends Alvirah Meehan and Regan Reilly determine they must solve this case. To complicate matters more, each person aboard the ship is portraying a different costumed character in the mystery game challenge. Everyone on the ship becomes suspect - from bow to stern! The question is... how rocky will the waters become?

"The Mystery Cruise" is full of intrigue, and it's funny, too! Can Alvirah and Regan somehow work together and solve this mystery before someone is thrown overboard? You'll have to watch and see!


See or Skip:

This is a fun mystery, but please note... it is a murder mystery, so it may not be suitable for young viewers.

Otherwise, I think most Hallmark mystery watchers would enjoy this one! Definitely one to "sea"!

    1. I agree with you about "The Mystery Cruise" movie. It's honestly one of the worst Hallmark movies I've ever seen. My reasons for not liking it are the following:

      1. There were too many characters and storylines to keep up with.

      2. The special effects in between the scenes looked cheesy, cheap, and poorly made.

      3. Every time a mystery was introduced, all the answers about the mystery were shortly revealed, taking the fun out of trying to solve the mystery alongside the characters.

      If you want to watch a better movie featuring these characters, I would recommend "Deck the Halls" from 2011. It's a much more enjoyable film than this one. I still want to read "The Santa Cruise" book, in the hopes that it's better than this movie was.
