In the what-did-I-just-see murder mystery Strictly Confidential, the camera might as well be wielded by Austin Powers in “yeah baby!” mode: it has the same campy fixation on Elizabeth Hurley’s breasts. 

What’s weirder, and even more laughable, is that this was written and directed by Hurley’s 22-year-old son Damian, who got his mum to produce, star, totter around a Caribbean island in high heels during flashbacks to unexplained deaths, and even cavort in a partially nude heavy petting scene with a secret girlfriend half her age.

Nothing about the film makes sense, but it’s charmingly terrible – a sort of I Know Who You Shagged Last Summer, to borrow another Austin-ism.

It begins a year after the drowning of a young woman named Rebecca (Lauren McQueen), one of the two daughters of Hurley’s sexy widow. All Rebecca’s near and dear come back on the anniversary of her demise, including best friend Mia (Georgia Lock), the only one for whom grief seems to cut particularly deep.
