I am not really sure this works as a film. It really is a stage play, an old fashioned farce. The ending reinforces this. The film is about a couple who have a few friends (possibly nearer to work colleagues) round for a mini party and have a minor argument. To decide who is right and wrong they decide to replay the evening over again. Then again and again and again.... Eventually they hire actors to recreate the evening so they can witness it from a distance. It sounds like a great set up but I just didn't think it really was successfully carried out. It does genuinely get funny when they get the actors involved and worth watching alone for that section of the film. Overall though it just felt quite a strange film to watch and that I should be sitting in a theatre watching. I felt it really lost something as a film but can't put my finger on it. It was well acted just not quite right. From the 1970s there was a stage show called Abigail's Party which is along the same lines and was turned into a one off tv show that it reminded me off for not feeling right. Overall I would give it a go and stick with it as once the actors get involved it is genuinely funny.
A couple get into an argument at their cocktail party that escalates until it brings an abrupt end to the festivities. They and their guests decide to re-create the entire night again and again to determine who was right.
