‘Manhattan Murder Mystery’

Clever and amusing though this 1993 film often is, it is also Woody Allen’s whiniest to date, and your appreciation of its pleasures will fluctuate according to your tolerance of his angst. Still, there is much to enjoy in this light PG-rated film, though giggles will be heard more than outright laughter. Set in Allen’s trademark Manhattan, “Murder” showcases the Liptons (Allen and Diane Keaton, pictured), married long enough (nearly 20 years) to make allowances for each other’s foibles. When their neighbor (Lynn Cohen) dies of a heart attack, Carol Lipton starts to get suspicious. Is Carol prescient or a woman with a hyperactive imagination? (TMC Sunday at 11:45 a.m., again at 9 p.m.)
