Would you kill for a quiet cottage weekend?
Nice guy Todd (Tyler Labine) and his bridezilla-to-be girlfriend Cammie (Malin Akerman) would.
Todd’s got the family cottage booked and an engagement ring packed and ready, but when his obnoxious deadbeat brother shows up with a lady friend, his plans are dashed. Murder ensues, but rather than turn themselves in, Todd and Cammie decide to cover it up and enjoy their much-deserved time together.
Of course, the police show up and party guests start asking questions, testing the couple’s plan and commitment to each other.
Director Peter Wellington can’t quite pull off the tone of this dark comedy, where the jokes and drama often fit awkwardly together, but he gets two fine performances from his leads, especially Akerman, who knows the material demands that she go over the top. And Dan Petronijevic, who plays Todd’s brother, deserves special credit for being one of the worst cottage interlopers ever onscreen.
