A high school baseball coach (Krumholtz) and a down-on-his-luck private investigator (Burns) form a bond as they scour New York City for the coach's wife, who's run away with a second-rate rock star. As in Burns' previous films, the city itself becomes a character as the two men confront their fear of change and the familiar habit of loneliness. Written by
The coach was from Peekskill, New York not Poughkeepsie. But, that's something that the coach reminds the detective a couple of times. The acting was good and the story was interesting. I did pick up on one error. The detective (a resident of New York City) drives a car with New Jersey plates. I was hoping they'd explain that but I guess someone overlooked it. Rachel Dratch plays her usual nutty female but for once her part has a little more meat to it. The coach from Upstate NY has a NYC accent for some reason but little things like that can be overlooked. The locations are authentic, they didn't try to pass off Montreal or Seattle as New York City. Jack,the detective, apparently doesn't like the present administration in Washington and let's everyone know about it. I enjoyed the movie and recommend it.
