LIFESTYLES OF THE RICH AND BORING

"KILLER WEEKEND has so many plot holes and is generally poorly acted, but it's Agatha Christie style plot was engrossing enough that I find myself liking it anyway. Not a great whodunit, but has enough plot twists to keep you interested.
A group of rich, snooty and ultimately boring couples are spending the weekend at a beautiful resort in Santa Barbara, when one of them is brutally murdered.
A detective who is ready to retire is assigned the case and his Columbo-style interrogation and dry humor are fun to watch. We get several suspects and of course the necessary red herrings.
Al Sapienza gets the acting honors playing studly Michael Greene, who becomes the main suspect when his wife is victim no. 2. His restrained performance erupts when he is accused and his Brooklyn accent comes out of nowhere, but he infuses the role with a lot of energy. Eric Roberts, the only name star in the movie, is of course the first murder victim, and he adds his usual heartless, cold persona to this role. Screenwriter Jennifer Farrell wrote herself a meaty role as hostess Janet, whose blond beauty and warm smile are not to be taken too seriously, it seems. There's some incest, some steamy sex scenes, but the violence is restrained and not too gory.
Overall, mystery buffs may appreciate this low budget film; at least it's not another slasher wannabe."

"Cyriell Clair is the reason I bought the DVD. She is the most beautiful woman on the planet."
