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

Simply smarter and funnier than anything else out there.
24 December 1998 | by (Flagstaff, Arizona) – See all my reviews

As Hollywood continues to dumb down in its relentless pursuit of the lowest common denominator, a film as funny and smart as "Where's Marlowe" is just too good to be true. I was lucky enough to catch it at the First Annual Worldfest-Flagstaff film festival, where it was a huge hit. Unfortunately, the film is such a clever 'reveal' that to describe it at all would be to take away from the pleasure of being caught in its web. So all I can suggest is that you do whatever you can to get this film seen. Bug the distributors! Demand it at festivals! You'll be glad you did.
