Storyline

Nigel Dennis publishes a scandal magazine. But for each story he writes, he first approaches the person whose scandalous behavior is described (or rather implied, to avoid any libel suit) and says he will suppress the story in return for money. Several of his victims first decide individually to kill him instead of paying, but fail in amusing ways. Then they find that to protect their various secrets they must now join forces for a rather different purpose... Written by Anonymous

Very funny. Very funny.
3 May 2002 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

There are few films (these days) that make you laugh out loud and laugh hilariously. This film is one of them. "Pay my blackmail or I publish in a month" is the magazine publisher's standard line. The characters who react to this blackmail are varied, amusing and unique.We need this film to be available on video.
