Storyline

Ray Pluto is a detective with a problem due to the loss of his wife and daughter. One day, he is in a fast food place, and due to a pain in his back, he is not able to avoid a mass murderer of six people. A young boy uses his gun and kills the killer. He becomes a loser in the eyes of the police force and public opinion, and his partner convinces him to have a session with the chiropractor Dr. Ann Beamer. A complicated romance between them grows. Meanwhile, at least two other plots happen in the movie involving detective Pluto and other odd characters. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

At 40 minutes, during the fishing scene when the bucket is shot, the hole in the bucket is different than the gunshot hole, the bucket is tipped back showing it's empty. The next scene, water is pouring out of only one side of the bucket. A gunshot at close range would have gone through the plastic bucket. The image inside the bucket shows a catfish and only one gunshot hole "possibly". The bucket has different levels of dirt on it between shots also. See more »

worth watching
3 September 2007 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Now let me start off by saying this film ever won't win any awards. That said, I did find it surprisingly enjoyable, especially after reading so many negative reviews. It is kind of a Tarantino lite, with an urban setting, quirky characters, cartoon violence, irregular dialogue and strange plot twists. If you are a fan of films with a traditional narrative, this is not the movie for you. However, if you are a fan of Denis Leary (not unlike Tommy Gavin here) and you are a fan of black comedy, you might like this. It's one of Decillo's lesser works, but it's still more charming than what you might find at the Multiplex. I was rarely bored, and i had a few good chuckles, that's all i ask of a late night cable film. So give it a chance.
