Get a dose of Mac in this cheap keep
19 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

This is a cheap, yes I said cheap, "Ha" is a B type, but ambiguous comedy, in which Davis works his charm as a new private detective, who's just been kicked out by his ex, the family dog, snarling, and standing guard. He works for a neurotic attorney (Feldshuh), up to her neck in her problems, one involving her playboy of an ex, Ian Mcshane, can you believe it. What hasn't this guy been in? Of course, they inevitably fall in love, not before chauvist Davis, has an affair with a hot Latino secretary. CTKH does have some small gold comic moments, one in a late night chemist, but regardless, this film actually has a story and energy, which draws you in, and you can't help but be fascinated by the whole affair, which was virtually non existent, back in the days on video shelves. Mac Davis shows us, he's not the first singer who can act, and I thought he did really well, and carried it. Art Metrano was fun too, where he didn't have much to do, I must admit. Yeah, this gem of a find, is worth a view definitely, with Mac Davis, the luckiest driver, who can cause regular rear chain car collisions, and get away, unscathed.
