Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston are “back in action” promises the new trailer for Netflix’s Murder Mystery, which apparently expects us to not only remember, but to be fond of their previous collaboration, 2011's Just Go With It. In that film, as we noted in our review, they played “characters too awful to deserve anyone better than each other,” and, per the slick, groan-worthy footage on display here, Murder Mystery doesn’t look like much of a departure.

Sandler plays a cop with the very Sandlerian name of Nick Spitz in the film, which finds he and his mystery-loving wife Audrey getting swept up in a murder plot on the yacht of an elderly billionaire. There’s silly accents, fast cars, and gags galore in the trailer, which offers a glimpse at a supporting cast that includes Luke Evans, Gemma Arterton, Luis Gerardo Mendez and, whoa, Terence Stamp. Check it out below.

Murder Mystery gores into your queue on June 14.
