it’s new year’s eve at the perry mansion, and julia and matthew perry seem to have it all. but matthew wants something more - to be rid of his wife julia so he can have some real fun! he resolves to murder julia by the new year’s end, and tells her so. she vows to stay alive, and tells him so and so the game begins - an hilarious year-long match of wits and the witless.
but while julia cleverly dodges matthew’s devious murder attempts, the perry friends and staff are dying off mysteriously - it seems matthew is successful in murdering everyone but julia!
as the bodies are falling, dim-witted daughter bunny contemplates calling off her wedding to unwitting donald since all the intended gift-bearing guests are dying.
enter detective plotnik - a sam spade reincarnation who suspects everyone, but hasn't a clue. "a little murder never hurt anybody" is an homage to the screwball comedies of the 1930s and 1940s
