Those Crazy Comedies!
Attack of the Lake People

"I wish just ONCE we could have a family get-together without somebody getting tied up!"  This plaintiff request, yelled at the top of her lungs by Aunt Clarise, gives you a pretty good idea of how family reunions go for this particular gang.  Peri has taken her husband Graham to the family lake house to finally meet the family.  And Graham was looking forward to it.  That is, until he gets overcharged by the taxi service, takes a large swig from the Major's private stock and has a wax apple stuck in his mouth and then dislodged by being slapped on the head.  It's little things like this that make him start to get a little nervous.  As if things weren't difficult enough, the Major, who runs the house, suddenly ups and dies.  This would normally be cause for much grief but in THIS case, thanks to a mystery-reading preacher, everyone starts suspecting everyone else of murder.   And there's plenty of suspicious characters around.  There's cousin Stutz, who's been in more accidents than a stunt driver, Teddy, who sleep-walks, and her husband Dennis, the glad-handing insurance agent.  But guess who was the last one to see the Major alive?  And who discovered him after he had passed on?  And who becomes everyone else's prime suspect?  That's right.  Graham.
