Storyline

A socialite while having dinner with her husband, her sister, her aunt, a friend of her sister and her husband, her husband's assistant and an English reporter, dies. It is later learned that she died from ingesting cyanide, Initially it is believed she may have given it to herself because she's having emotional problems. But her husband gets a note saying she was murdered so he tries to prove it and part of his plan to bring out the people who were there when his wife died. He gives a toast then everybody gets up to dance or do something. When they return, he takes a drink of champagne and drops dead. So they wonder how the cyanide got into his glass. Her sister who has taken a liking to the reporter learns he is actually an investigator. And he works with the police to find the killer. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

80's tack but great for Anthony Andrews fans
4 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm only giving this 10 because I love Anthony Andrews. And Colonel Potter from MASH is in this too! Hurrah!

It's a typical 80's murder-mystery. Fun, tacky, full of shoulder pads and bad hair. But Anthony Andrews looks as lovely as ever. So....what's a girl to do?

The plot isn't blindingly obvious which is good. I'm not sure the transfer of events from England to the US really works, but I'm sure they had good commercial reasons for doing so. If you're a fan of the 80s you'll love it. There's even an actress from Dallas in there! It's pure eighties-fest and if you like Anthony Andrews and heavy eye makeup you'll love it!!
