The stunt where it looks as though Jennifer Aniston descends from 1,000 fet in the air down the side of the Eiffel Tower actually happened! Jennifer Aniston did not do the stunt and it was all amazingly done by her stunt double, Kelly Phelan.

Kelly told Netflix the stunt was “an experience I would have never put on my bucket list because I truly didn’t think it would ever be done”. “I’ve done a lot of high-wire work, but never on a world famous monument,” she said.

Adam Sandler also confirmed the stunt was very much real. While on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Adam Sandler said: “Jennifer falls off the Eiffel Tower in it. It was very cool. They did it at like two in the morning because when you go to Paris you go to see the Eiffel Tower.

“So they were like, ‘You can shoot there, but do it at like two in the morning’, so we’re not ruining everybody’s time.”

When the Spitzes see a man walking into a burning car, they are in Les Cailloux

Another iconic Parisian location was the restaurant Les Cailloux. The restaurant is in the background when the couple see a man walk into a burning vehicle. Pretty standard for a murder mystery movie!

Director Jeremy Garelick said he wanted to including these filming locations in Murder Mystery 2 due to the effect of lockdown. He said he wanted “every scene in every location to be extravagant and to give the audience and opportunity to escape and see the world when they’ve been locked in their house.”

The Love Lock Bridge is where Nick and Audrey renew their vows

In a romantic moment in the film, Nick and Audrey end up renewing their vows. The scene takes place at the Love Lock Bridge. The bridge is famously known for tourists writing their names on a padlock and attach it to the bridge before throwing the key into the river.

This is all super wholesome but it is now illegal to attach a padlock to the bridge in Paris because the locks megan to compromise the bridge’s structural integrity.

Murder Mystery 2 is available on Netflix now. For all the latest Netflix news, drops, quizzes and memes like The Holy Church of Netflix on Facebook.
