One of the funniest unknown films in history
2 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

With dozens of NY comedians in nearly every role (including Howard Sterns screen debut) the detective spoof is merely a format for a never ending zanyness unseen on screen since Abbott & Costello or Seinfeld - where every single character that appears is in some way totally nuts. Even Zippy the chimp jumps in the window. You really come to like the two stars Dave Hawthorne and Bob Nelson who hold this roller coaster together like all the great comedy teams of the golden age of Hollywood. Why this film is such a secret is beyond me. Includes Stern outtakes.
