Storyline

After her ex-boyfriend, mobster Tony Galper, dies in an accident in her home, Vanessa turns to club owner Justin Prince to help her out. He disposes of the body for her but unknown to him, tabloid photographer Linwood Coben secretly photographed him getting rid of the body. He tells Prince he can have the negatives and prints for $250,000 and Prince agrees to pay him. They meet that evening but Prince has every intention of killing him, making it look like Coben committed suicide. Reviewing the crime scene, Columbo immediately has his doubts about the suicide. To solve Coben's murder, however, he will also have to solve what happened to Galper. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Freddie the Messenger confronts Lt. Columbo while seated in his car, they have a short conversation, then he presents Columbo with his Mafia business card, but the printed title on the card is all wrong. It reads COPO TUTTI DE COPO which has no meaning. The correct and very common expression in the underworld is Capo di tutti Capi, which means Boss of all Bosses. See more »

Double Murder, Double Thumbs UP!
30 January 2003 | by 95mustangSee all my reviews

Columbo at it's best. Good fun. This movie seems to be a little darker than usual in the sense that it seems to take place mostly at night. The main character(The killer), is a little weak but Falk is in usual top-form. The obviousness of every columbo script remains alive but the matter-of-fact/ness was not as evident as portrayed in the classics. Good and interesting twist in the end by solving the first murder through the process of solving the second by default. As usual, top notch with a surprise appearance by a Sopranos Regular. The only thing I particularly didn't like was the movie soundtrack. Techno to suit the movie theme, but not to suit the Columbo dynasty. I recommend it if you enjoy the masterfullness of Columbo himself.
