Murder Mystery revolves around NYC detective (Sandler) and his wife (Aniston) who finally embark on their long-promised European trip. Aniston meets a wealthy man who invites the lovely couple aboard his yacht for a family gathering, but things go south when someone dies and the couple become the prime suspects in the murder.

The film was viewed by 13,374,914 accounts in the US and Canada, and 17,494,949 worldwide, the streaming giant revealed in a tweet.
