* Happens in each of the Albert Finney/Peter Ustinov HerculePoirot movies. This includes ''DeathOnTheNile'', even though the book just had Poirot explain his conclusion to the killers and a couple of others, not the whole boat.

* ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'': Parodied, as with many other detective tropes, in the NoirEpisode "Al Bundy, Shoe Dick". After Al has been [[FrameUp framed for the murder]] of an old rich man, he gathers the man's family and ends up accusing all of them of being the real murderer. His reasoning is either non-existent or hilariously faulty (like accusing a man with two hook hands of holding the murder weapon, or a retarded man of being a criminal mastermind), until he does prove himself with a bit of deductive logic that the FemmeFatale did it.

[[AC: Anime and Manga]]
* ''Manga/TheKindaichiCaseFiles'' ends every story arc with one of these, although they rarely happen in a parlor, instead usually occurring in the same place where one of the victims was killed. The summation is usually accompanied by a dramatic explanation of exactly how the killer carried out his crimes. Kindaichi will explain everything -- motive, method, all the secrets behind the case -- without revealing the killer's identity, leaving that for the very end.
