"I like any game where you don't have to move." ... "You don't have to for this one--if you're smart enough."
14 January 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Superb, darkly comic whodunit with all the pieces right there for you to place. Wicked James Coburn is the cunning movie producer and game-lover inviting to his yacht the failed screenwriter (Richard Benjamin), his alcoholic wife (Joan Hackett, in a sympathetic performance), the catty agent (Dyan Cannon, more wired than ever before), the starlet (Raquel Welch, looking a little out-of-it), the starlet's husband (Ian McShane), and a director down-on-his-luck (James Mason, the calm-head who pays attention to the details). The only trouble with the film is that the first-half (involving a hilarious personality game) is SO good and clever that the murder-mystery second-half lets you down a bit. Still, these characters are a wonderfully tainted, self-absorbed lot and Dyan Cannon's breakdown after someone almost offs her is a wild bit of breakneck acting. I also admired Welch's scene at midnight on the top deck, talking about stealing a coat (she's very seductive and charming, though she continues to whisper her dialogue throughout the film and comes off as slightly dazed). The character conflicts and the reasoning behind who-does-what-to-whom doesn't bear a great deal of scrutiny (and even after several viewings, I'm still not clear on that business regarding the cabin keys); however, the film is extremely entertaining, a verbally exciting match-of-wits by a group of Hollywood hopefuls and burn-outs. ***1/2 from ****
