Unearthed shocker.
9 August 2006 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

A dirty P.I. flick.

Dirty figuratively due to the jokes and nudity. Dirty literally because some of those rooms were NASTY! Allen Garfield shows that there was a time when he could lead a film adequately. He dresses like Darren McGavin did in 'Night Stalker.' Which began the same year I believe.

Garfield does an OK job here. He combines a 'go get 'em' attitude with typical human weakness. And it takes guts for a man that looks like him to do frontal nudity.

As P.I. flicks go, it's just normal. That's not a bad thing though. Some suspense but no real revelations.

And director Avildsen would later get an Oscar for 'Rocky.' Here's a good early one for his fans.
