Mary invites Dick to a murder mystery weekend and the Solomons join Mary to the mansion where the weekend will take place. However, the Solomons do not realize it's all fake and all the other guests are merely actors. The first evening, Mary falls ill and spends the rest of the time in bed. Then, the first murder takes place and the Solomons don't understand why everybody remains so calm while somebody has just been murdered. They decide they have to find out who the killer is.

Macaffrey's (Billy Connolly) comment to Dick, something like "you sir make me want to return to my first love - DRINK!" may be an allusion to Billy himself. He quit drinking in the early 90s. See more »


Sally Solomon: I don't get it. For free, murder it's a horrible tragedy, but if you charge a hundred bucks for it, it suddenly it's a sophisticated night out.
Tommy Solomon: But it's inappropriate for kids.
Dr. Dick Solomon: This world does need more entertainment that it's acceptable for children.
Harry Solomon: Something where people are nice to each other. Something where people just love one another.
Tommy Solomon: They have that. It's called pornography.
Dr. Dick Solomon: And that's what kids should watch.
