Genre: Mystery, Comedy
Watch Quality A
The audio and video are both clear and easy to watch with just a few minor skips and jumps.
A bumbling wigmaker finds himself both a victim and a suspect in a complex blackmail plot. But as police dig deeper, they find more than meets the eye.
Star Power C-
The actors are competent but not established stars. They play the mystery and comedic elements skillfully, but each character is rather one-dimensional.
Chill Factor C+
Your date will probably find this film amusing, but the oddball comedy is not exactly steamy. There is a distinct lack of anything resembling romance.
Mental Health Check B+
Despite the crimes, this film is relatively relaxing. It certainly avoids the grit of the film-noir genre. The silly characters keep the mood light.
Overall Grade C+
The movie manages to present a mystery story that is unpredictable yet not at all thrilling, and a comedy schtick that is humorous without making you laugh out loud. You will want to keep watching more out of curiosity than compelling direction.
