Lori Loughlin in Garage Sale Mystery: All That Glitters (2014)

Jennifer (Lori Loughlin) is still finding those valuables as she scours garage sales to sell in her consignment store and is looking at stepping things up by going to storage unit auctions run by her friend Martin (Michael Kopsa). But when Martin is discovered murdered shortly after the auction Jennifer finds herself helping out Detective Lynwood (Kevin O'Grady) in his investigations much to the worry of her husband Jason (Steve Bacic). With Martin's wife, who was soon to be his ex-wife, not taking kindly to her snooping things start to get dangerous for Jennifer especially when someone breaks in to their store.

It is rare that I find myself lost for words but as I attempt to review "Garage Sale Mystery: All That Glitters" I am just that, lost for words. The thing is that the lack of words isn't because I have just watched something diabolically bad or exceptionally original but because I have watched something utterly regular. For all the light hearted background stuff as we have Jennifer the antiques expert with an eye for spotting detail and a son who has inherited the same eye it boils down to the old standard of a civilian playing detective and ending up in danger. And as such "Garage Sale Mystery: All That Glitters" is going to appeal to a certain type of audience which just wants to be entertained in an easy way which is not overly bothered about authenticity when it comes to detail or grit when it comes to danger.

But for all which is ordinary about "Garage Sale Mystery: All That Glitters" it is still entertaining with Lori Loughlin playing the equivalent of a super mum who can do everything from being concerned mum to business owner as well as helping out the police without even breaking a sweat or showing a worry line. But for me the best part of the movie is just a brief scene of the storage auction which if you have ever watched "Storage Hunters" is a comical take on it with an angry character and some ridiculous bidding and so on. The thing about all this is that "Garage Sale Mystery: All That Glitters" isn't about the crime, it is about the people and the actors and the lightness such as Jennifer's business partner Danielle being sweet talked by a customer and as such for those who enjoy light hearted stuff then it will entertain.

What this all boils down to is that "Garage Sale Mystery: All That Glitters" is really for fans of Lori Loughlin and those who like murder mysteries where it is really about the characters and the lighter moments rather than actually the crime and the actual solving of it.
