A hapless Los Angeles private detective is hired by a shady millionaire to search for the man's missing teenage heiress while at the same time, the detective's estranged teenage niece arrives in town and wants in on the case.
I just saw this film on Sundance channel (TV). I thought it was an enjoyable film, the main character is a passive intellectual but I've known people like him and he rings true to this time (around 2002). The dialog is very believable, many things that are said aren't true, though the characters might want to believe they are.
These characters seem to be L.A. "slackers", though at least we see the main character at work upon occasion. He doesn't seem to take it very seriously, and his garage is the most laid back garage I've ever seen. The two girls seem to do little but travel and have sex. Would this story make more sense if it was set in Hawaii as opposed to Los Angeles? Perhaps.
Its a languid film but I think I learned something real from watching it. 7 out of 10.
