PG Certificate


Our Score
Lindsay Maracotta's novel The Dead Hollywood Moms Society is the inspiration for this sprightly whodunnit, which stars Justine Bateman as a children's books illustrator whose producer-husband Andrew McCarthy is desperate to get back into the limelight. However, becoming the prime suspect in the murder of his shallow neighbour Angie Everhart (the trophy wife of a soap star) wasn't exactly what he had in mind, so Bateman joins up with handsome screenwriter David Gale to catch the real killer. There are a few acerbic observations on how celebrities treat their offspring, but this is undemanding entertainment, not satire.


A woman and her husband struggle to find a foothold in the glamorous world of Beverly Hills - until he gains unexpected attention as the prime suspect in the killing of their neighbour, and she joins forces with a screenwriter to find the real culprit. Comedy murder mystery, starring Justine Bateman, Andrew McCarthy and George Hamilton.
