Storyline

Family that kills together seeks to stay together in style, by icing the heir of one of their victims, before she comes into her inheritance. If the heiress audits the books, she'll discover that the family has already blown her share of the estate. Her newlywed sister was backed off a cliff while having her photo snapped, so the younger sister is understandably leery of heights, but not of her very understanding new in-laws. Written by David Stevens

A Good Tongue in Cheek Effort
5 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting premise. A group of lazy relatives maintain their lifestyles by murdering relatives and using their money. Richard Long, who was a mainstay in television at this time, plays a young playboy type who wastes to much money that they have to do more killing. He marries a young woman and arranges for her to fall off a cliff. That money runs out through bad investments. Soon, that woman's sister shows up. She is heir to her sister's fortune, but if she doesn't live to her 21st birthday, the money will go to Long and his evil relatives. There are lots of efforts to bump her off. Of course, with their history, they have to be creative. That slows them down. The show has a nice conclusion that is quite satisfying.
