Storyline

The awkward urban private eye, Benny Cooperman, confronts a murder mystery in the wilds of Algonquin Park.

Naturally, Benny suffers some misadventures trying to navigate the bush country, much less solve the case. Written by johnbernardbooks <johnbooks@e-velocity.net>

OK murder mystery.
29 September 2003 | by (Montreal, Quebec, Canada) – See all my reviews

Anyone who has read any of Howard Engel's Benny Cooperman mysteries will enjoy this made-for-TV film. The plot twists are a little far fetched and a tad confusing but on the whole the film holds together. The big plus here is Saul Rubinek as Cooperman. Rubinek is hilarious as the small town private eye sent into the mosquito-infested great outdoors (Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario). He seems completely out of his element but you sense that there is more to him than meets the eye. Witness his conversation with the Evangelist's girlfriend at the local cafe. He easily gains her confidence and gets the information he was looking for in such a casual way you would think that he really was just making conversation. Kenneth Welsh as the Evangelist is OK(complete with fake southern accent)as are most of the supporting actors (look for Graham Greene in the first few minutes of the film)but Rubinek is clearly the star of this show. Kate Lynch is also good as the owner of the local lodge. Overall a good time filler with some decent scenery and a reasonably good plot.
