They say that New Year’s Resolutions, that most time-honoured tradition, are doomed to fail. People throw themselves enthusiastically at a lofty goal; this year they will cut out sugar completely, learn a new language by July, quit smoking, or finally write their novel. It doesn’t matter that their outline has the page count skyrocketing – it has been resolved! And on the glitziest, tipsiest of nights too! It can’t possibly fail. So, what happens when Matthew Perry, husband to Julia, father to Bunny, resolves that before the clock strikes midnight one year from now, he will have murdered his wife? Well, she laughs hysterically for a moment before vowing that she will make passionate love to their butler and then they go off to host their party. What this new year brings is laugh after laugh, body after body (not Julia’s…Matthew isn’t very good at this), and a bona fide gumshoe, who probably couldn’t buy gum. Or a shoe. Join us for a new year full of comedy, mystery, marriage (maybe) and falling in love all over again!
