Murder by Death (1976)

Five famous literary detective characters and their sidekicks are invited to a bizarre mansion to solve an even stranger mystery. 
Likable crime mystery spoof with some occasional good jokes; somehow the motley star cast make it happen. 

Halliwell*: "Sometimes thin but generally likable spoof of a longstanding genre; the stars seize their opportunities avidly, and the film does not outstay its welcome."

Maltin***: "...enjoyable all-star comedy..."
