When the doorman of an expensive apartment building turns up with a broken neck, it doesn't attract much attention. But when it happens a second time, and then a third, the city starts to get nervous. The trail of murder and mystery leads from the posh lobbies of Park Avenue to the back alleys in the "Wrong" part of town. Terry Reilly would rather not get involved. He has his novel to finish, and he has the late shift as the doorman at the Biltmore to keep him busy. But when the murderer picks his building as the next target, Terry finds out that he'll have to solve the mystery to save his own neck. Written by TravisBond-aka-HAVOK2000

Set up deserves a better mystery
13 July 2011 | by udar55See all my reviews

Someone has killed three Atlanta doormen (so much for the "city that never sleeps") over the period of a few days. Night doorman Terry Reilly (Bradley Whitford) was a witness to the first murder and now the killer might be after him. Of course, this fits in perfectly to Terry's world as he is a part-time writer of mystery stories and he teams up with Linda Regan (Sharon Sharth), niece of one of the victims, to try to solve this case. I believe the real title of this should be DUMB AS DIRT. Movies like this are so curious to me. You have a lead character who is such a fan of mysteries (with the obligatory Bogart movie posters on his wall), yet the filmmakers plan the dumbest mystery one can imagine. Seriously, who reads a script like this and is like, "Yes, I will give you money to make this." Well, at least I got to see Bradley Whitford's movie debut. The film is short (73 minutes) and pads out its 84 minute run time with a hilarious end credit sequence that shows them re-playing bits from the film for every character with the actors name on screen. I'm talking EVVVVERY character from the leads to the short order cook who has one word of dialog to the lady who walks past the camera with a dog in one shot.
