"...The movie is a savage satire about intolerance....A brave effort in a timid time..."
A tongue-in-cheek examination of both sides of the political spectrum, this black comedy follows the culinary exploits of a group of liberal graduate students who invite right-wingers to dinner to pick their brains--literally, as it turns out. After each dinner, the guest of honor is murdered and buried in the back yard. A cutting satire on the self-righteous on both sides of the political divide.
Every Sunday, a group of five college buddies invite a guest over, and exchange views on various topics. When a heated discussion during one of these gatherings leads to the death of a racist visitor, it gives the quintet a warped idea: why not have an undesirable over each week -- and then kill and bury him! (The scheme even yields an unexpected and pleasant side effect: loads of juicy tomatoes sprout in their "newly fertilized" garden!) But exactly how long can the friends get away with murder'
