Storyline

At a school reunion dinner in a remote country mansion, a dozen people are offered the chance to collect a million pounds each if they can stay on the estate, cut off from the outside world, for 96 hours. With deaths, sexual intrigue, kidnapping, and spiraling levels of farce and confusion, the action barely pauses for breath as it heads towards its "Will they or won't they succeed" climax. Written by Bruce Windwood

A bit boring
19 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

12 people have been invited to a school reunion in a mansion.

When they turn up they find they've been picked at random (by the owner of the house who is dying (or has died - it's never made clear)) from a list of people who registered on a website for their school. If they spend the next 96 hours in the house without leaving the grounds they get a million pounds each.

The catch is no one is allowed to leave the grounds for the duration of their stay (including anyone else who enters the property, like a pair burglars, 1 fiancée and 2 coppers).

All in all, the film never really gets going.

And despite Miranda Hart having a prominent position on the DVD box (probably due to her recent BBC show), she is in it for all of 5 minutes (which may or may not be a good thing depending on what you think of her) as Barry's fiancée who has turned up to drag him away for wedding (which was due to take place the day after the reunion) and results in her (mostly unseen) confinement (and shouts for help) for the rest of the film.
