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

A sadly ignored film
12 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

I love this flick. I went to a test screening in L.A. a year or two (?) before its release, had the opportunity to make comments about the film, etc. Was looking forward to it coming out... and then never heard of it again until it came out two years or whatever later on. I must have been the only person in the screening who liked it.

Took the wife to it when it came out in theaters, and it still made an impression on me the second time. Sure, it's a bit uneven and takes a while to figure out where it's going, but it's a fun movie with some neat twists and more originality than many other films out there these days.
