review by
Mike Haberfelner

Playwrights George (Maurice LaMarche) anbd Charlie (Charles M. Howell IV) have committed to write a play with one another - but they start with a blank page and don't even know what to write. So after some brainstorming they come up with the story of a rich heiress, Bridgette (Galadriel Stineman) who receives a surprise visit from Cooper (Kristos Andrews), a stranger roughly her age, who invites himself to a cup of tea - but he's really just after her prizeless Picasso she has just hanging around in her living room. Soon enough though our writers notice their script sounds pretty much like every other mystery play out there, and while constantly quarrelling about which direction their play would take and whether they shouldn't write a screenplay instead, they add more and more elements to it to more and more divert the story, everything from a psychopath in a chicken costume (Spencer Breslin) to a blind French medium (Carla Collins) to dead neighbours (Sally Kirkland, Michael Gaglio) to a bit of martial arts, literally losing their plot more and more in the process ...

Lisa Wilcox plays George's wife, incidently also called Bridgette.


In all its intended silliness, Murder, Anyone? is abtually a pretty clever movie, a film where basic plot and meta level (this being the writers discussing) interact in a very unusual way inasmuch as each level is a comment on/reflection of the other to a point where the "reality" of everything shown in the movie is put into question. And the idea to represent the stageplay section of the movie like an actual filmed stageplay, with the camera filming the "stage" almost exclusively from the auditorium and the actors often sporting very stagey mannerisms just plays into everything, while a solid cast obviously in on the joke but playing it straight brings the whole thing to life in a very entertaining way.
