Six individuals with ties to the government (red herring!) are invited to a mansion for mysterious reasons, and one by one several of them get killed and their bodies get tossed on couches. Jokey concept is loosely inspired by the board game by Parker Brothers that I played as a kid, but the 'real' inspiration is Agatha Christie (and, to lesser extent, Neil Simon's Murder by Death) - as to who commits the homicides depends on which ending you 'believe' (there are three, to be exact) ... but "solving" the crimes is besides the point. "Fans" of murder mystery dinner theater might find the bad jokes and sight gags to be amusing, except this does not come with a watery salad, over-cooked chicken marsala and boxed wine.
