Sheila is killed in a hit-and-run car accident while walking home from a party one night. A year later, her multi-millionaire husband, Clinton, invites a group of friends to spend a week with him on his yacht. Clinton loves to play elaborate games and he assigns everyone a secret - one is an alcoholic, another an informer and so on - that they are not to share with anyone. Every day for the next six days, they will call into a port where they will be given clues to discover one person's secret. The game takes a deadly twist when a murder tales place and it all has to do with the game they have been playing and the secrets that Clinton assigned at the outset. It all seems solved but all is not what it appears. Written by garykmcd

Best Who Dun It I Ever Saw
13 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

I can not speak more highly of this movie as it has to be the best film who-dun-it ever conceived. James Coburn invites a group of Hollywood has been types on his yacht in the south of France to find out who killed his gossip columnist wife Sheila, a year before at a wild party. He sets up murder puzzle games, one every night, to find the culprit and to entertain the guests, but the games get out of control and real murders begin. The clues in this movie are really unique as you the viewer play along to find out the murderer. I have seen this film 3X and am still in awe that I missed so many clues....right before my eyes. Never guessed the killer either and I am a mystery buff and usually can. The cast is great.There are so many funny and bitchy lines in this movie they come from every direction. My favorite line: James Mason (a TV commercial director filming a dog food commercial) talking to his wife on phone "I am sorry dear but I must hang up a cast member is peeing on my leg." And he doesn't mean one of the pooches! Beautifully filmed and an all around A++++ film.
