Storyline

Sheila Green 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

A Rare American Movie That Respects Viewer Thinking Ability
27 February 2002 | by JOHNBATES-1See all my reviews

And there certainly aren't many - thinking American movies, that is. It must have taken some financial courage to make this one.

I saw this film at a drive-in when it was first released. While gulping mouthfuls of baked chicken, cheese bread and beer, I was dumbfounded to realize this was an honest-to-goodness quality, thinking movie made by my fellow Americans. I felt so proud tears almost started to come.

The film is a real delight with humor, intelligence and a solid murder mystery to figure out - 'if you're smart enough'.
