Storyline

After making a 3-hour fiasco about New York City's water supply, a two-man film crew decides to take it up a notch by documenting life in the private investigator offices of "Boone and Murphy". Cheating husbands and missing dogs fail to bring in the big bucks however, and after sleeping with the wife of one of their clients Murphy leaves. To stop Boone from having to close down the business the two film-makers must resort to a hands-on approach in the investigations to ensure the completion of their movie. Written by Signy

FUN-tastic!!!
5 January 2003 | by (La Paz, Bolivia) – See all my reviews

I was near to enter to the realm of Morpheus, when I got this flick

on the cable. At first, I don't want to see this movie because in the

guide was advertised like a documentary. Wrong!

It is a movie who pretends to be a documentary, but who cares!

Because once I started seeing this film, I found it thought

provoking, interesting, and overall hilarious. There is a `killer'

scene near the end that made me laugh so strong that hurts.

Nice acting by one of my favorite actor from TV and movies, great

job Miguel!
