Dull, Elephantine "Humor" in Talk-Fest Centering on Local Politics
16 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

Oddly, Detour did not immediately propel Ann Savage into a host of similar roles. True, she does figure in the opening scenes of a Fox "B", The Spider (1945), but then went into a second-string, if starring role in this deadly dull and determinedly "B"-grade Universal comedy, which she easily steals from its nominal lack-luster lead, Phillip Terry, although she is all but swamped by the movie's focus on ultra-verbose but painfully unfunny Donald MacBride and his almost equally hapless stooge, Allen Jenkins. Thanks to the incompetence of director Will Jason, even the normally reliable Jane Darwell manages an embarrassingly hammy performance, allowing Edward Gargan, of all people, to walk away with the acting honors (such as they are).

If you are simply curious to catch Ann Savage, or actually delight in witless, garrulous cornball "humor", then this Dark Horse is for you. Otherwise, leave it in the dark where it truly belongs.
