Audience Reviews for Unexpected Guest


A typical murder mystery except with a cowboy twang to it: "somebody in this house is a murderer ..." The catch to all of these, I imagine, is the popularity of the star and his companions as they go through all the motions this genre entails. Poor me, caught w/o finding any of them popular.
