Good whodunit with college life as a backdrop. Pierce Brosnan does some good work here.

"MURDER 101 written and directed by Bill Condon (who would later grab an Oscar for GODS AND MONSTERS) is a great little movie that I had never heard of. Suffice to say, Condon's neat little script gives us two big surprises at the end. The murderer is hard to spot and the ending is just "Wow, did I just see what I think I saw?"
At any rate, Pierce Brosnan in his pre Bond days stars as a best-selling crime writer who teaches a class in how to write the perfect crime novel. Brosnan gained famed writing a true crime thriller that sent his friend to prison for murdering his wife. Brosnan returns to teaching, to meet his estranged wife, played sweetly by Dey Young, who has taken up with another professor, played smarmily by Mark L. Taylor (Fangs). Another friend of his is Detective Mike Dowley (played with a surly masculinity by Antoni Carone). Soon, though, things take a demonic twist when Pierce is set up for murder by one of his students. Rachel Sbarge in a crafty performance seems to be the one who is setting him up.
The pace is good; the script witty and inventive; and overall, a tidy, surprising mystery."
Nothing But Praise For Brosnan's Performance

"I really enjoyed this 1991 t.v thriller starring Pierce Brosnan, before stepping into the role of suave secret agent James Bond, Brosnan was College professior Charles Lattimore returning back after a leave of absence due to writing his novel. No sooner when he gets back he tries to ignite his relationship with his ex-wife but she is with someone else. As well he's back into teaching. His first assigment he has for his students is to plan the perfect murder, no sooner one of his students is murdered and he comes under fire from the local autothies. Be prepared for the surpirse ending is nothing you would expect. This film does examine that even people of high moral integrity can still fall for the usual mind games inoving love and passion. Pierce Brosnan in this role has all the crediabillty and durabilty for the viewer to sustain beief. It is indeed a well made film."

"finally a very good thriller with very famous actors. Brosnan of course much better than as our beloved 007 is just great in this movie. How he uses his knowledge to write a thriller and uses it on the real murder is fascinating and very enjoyable. If you in the mood for a great thriller DON'T MISS "MURDER 101""
