Kind of Like A Squeak
12 March 2006 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

Guy Kibbee is ousted from the textile firm he founded because he is old-fashioned. Or so his underlings think. He retires but is bored. He boys a cleaning establishment, without his wife's knowing. Racketeers are after the cleaner. That's why the original owner had it on the market. The movie is about how Kibbee foils them. He was OK as a minor player but not someone who could carry a movie, at least not this one. He has a daughter too. And a young assistant. The supporting cast is neither bad nor good. The whole affair is strictly routine.

I am about to lower my rating from a four to a three, because there is a gratuitous homophobic comment. And who makes it? The protagonist, as played by Kibbee.
