An enjoyable lightweight comedy
5 January 2010 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Bumbling detective Schwartz and his equally inept partner Simcha are hired by a man to find out if the man's wife is cheating on him with the family doctor. The blundering duo run afoul of mobsters and experience other mishaps during their investigation. Director/co-writer Ami Artiz relates the amusingly goofy story at a snappy pace and maintains an extremely amiable tone throughout. The humor is pretty silly and inoffensive, with a dinner party gone awry rating as the definite gut-busting comic highlight. The main characters are quite funny and engaging. Moreover, there's a sweet and good-natured sensibility evident throughout that's impossible to either dislike or resist. The conclusion is both clever and unexpected. Beni Nagari's lively and funky 70's blaxploitation style score hits the right-on groovy spot. Nice catchy theme song, too. A pleasant diversion.
