In this wryly funny dark comedy, a stylish remake of George Cukorís classic of the Ď30s, the trashy rub shoulders with the classy as reputations are ruined and the aspic falls. Dizzy society hostess Millicent Jordan (Marsha Mason) is planning an elegant dinner party for British royalty. But somehow the guest list winds up being a rogueís gallery. Brassy Kitty Packard (Ellen Greene) is a tramp in designer clothes, while her crass tycoon husband (Charles Durning) is a shark in a feeding frenzy for his hostís shipping empire. If a hostile takeover doesnít kill Oliver Jordan (John Mahoney), the appearance of this old flame Carlotta Vance (Lauren Bacall) will. But Carlotta isnít just interested in reheating their love affair. She needs cold cash. And fading superstar Larry Renault (Harry Hamlin) would love to come to dinner, but heís just deadÖ literally. Heís the victim of booze, cocaine and his massive ego. But thereís still plenty of list, greed, ambition and scandal to satisfy the enormous appetites of Millicentís guests. It all boils over into an evening of delicious backstabbing humor in which everybody gets dished before dinner is even served.
