1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Not your address, but if you're an American, it is your house. It's the White House, home of the President and site of state dinners and world-shaping decisions. But what if it's also the site of a hushed-up murder in a room just steps from the Oval Office?
Who did it — and why? That's what homicide cop Harlan Regis (Wesley Snipes) wants to know. And what you'll discover as Murder at 1600 sweeps you into an exciting mystery thrill-packed with suspects, cover-ups, covert agents, daring action sequences and an overseas crisis that could blow at any instant. Dwight Little (Marked For Death, Rapid Fire) directs Snipes and a top-notch cast featuring Diane Lane, Alan Alda, Daniel Benzali and Dennis Miller. It's up to Regis to sort through the clues and make sure the killer doesn't get away. It's up to you to make sure this gut-grabbing thriller doesn't get away.
My Thoughts:I remember seeing this movie years ago when it first came out on VHS. I remember enjoying it back then... but I haven't watched it since. This DVD was in a box full of DVDs that was given to me a couple years back... and I am just now getting the chance to watch it again. This one held up well for me over the years. I still found I enjoyed the movie quite a bit. Unfortunately shortly into the movie I remembered the ending... who the murderer was... even after all these years. But that's ok...it don't take away from the enjoyment. Recommended... if you never seen it.... check it out.

Righteous Kill, a review by Rich
Turk and Rooster, two aging NYPD detectives who have been longtime partners are faced with a serial killer who is murdering sociopathic criminals. They both have personal issues, and when they start working with a younger team, Perez and Riley, tensions between the pairs of partners is inevitable, especially since Turk is now living with Perez's ex-girlfriend, also a homicide detective.
All the ingredients of a great film? - DeNiro & Pacino playing a couple of veteran cops in a NY thriller, can't go wrong can it? Unfortunately it can, and it did.
Very weak script, two very tired performances from great actors, a plot twist telegraphed so early on in the film it wasn't even worth guessing at, and a storyline too overly cooked for the worst 70's cop shows.
This is not the worst movie ever, but with 2 heavyweights appearing to just be there for their paychecks, it was a major disappointment.

Synopsis: Gabi is a food blogger who gets hired by the young tech millionaire Josh to be his personal chef.
It gets really complicated when Gabi and Josh get drunk and sleep together - because Josh is engaged.
Gabi has to figure out a way to keep her new job without blowing up Josh's wedding.
My Opinion: As far as comedies go, this one is pretty harmless.
But I still enjoy it because of the characters and how they're portrayed.
Though quite honestly: You don't miss anything if you don't watch it.
