Funny, Gritty, Complexing... the complete Package
16 October 2020 | by Frank-E-HickeySee all my reviews

I honestly was not expecting such a compelling film out of The Kid Detective. It is a dark comedy in every sense of the word. From beginning to end. There are moments that are drop dead hilarious, and also so sad. Adam Brody plays his role perfectly. It is non-stop melancholy fused with bits of rich humor. I loved it.
