SRC 155: Murder At 1600 (1997)

When your political murder mystery plays more like a documentary of our current administration than it does an engaging thriller, you know you've drop zoned your way into the Restroom...

MURDER AT 1600 deals with a DC homicide detective (Wesley Snipes) who's called to the White House to investigate the death of an intern.  He gets more than he bargained for when various government officials (Alan Alda among them) want to make the incident go away as quickly as possible to cover up a larger conspiracy.  Along for the ride are Diane Lane and an unfunny Dennis Miller.

This Trump level mess is available for streaming on YouTube and Amazon, but as always, you're better off leaving this cinematic cover up to us and go watch AIR FORCE ONE again instead.

Our special guest this time out is Jennifer Briney, host of the Congressional Dish podcast.  Congressional Dish peels back the curtain on our government by explaining complicated legislation that anyone can understand.

Sit back now and give a listen as Griffin, Polton, & Knight flush you down the Cinematic Bowl with, MURDER AT 1600...
