Audience Reviews for Columbo: Lady in Waiting


The Columbo murder mystery Lady in Waiting is an entertaining and clever thriller. In order to break free of her overbearing brother Beth Chadwick kills him and attempts to make it look like an accident, but while tying up loose ends Lt. Columbo starts to suspect that the accident was actually a murder. Susan Clark and Leslie Nielsen lead the cast and deliver strong performances; Clark in particular has a lot of charisma and plays well off of Peter Falk. However, there are some odd directing choices that detract from the storytelling. Despite and few weaknesses, Lady in Waiting is an engaging crime drama.
