Not sure where my comment went, but it seems to have vanished. Anyway:
I found this absolutely hilarious. A 'must see' for film-noir fans.
What boosted my enjoyment was recognising virtually all of the sampled films featured. It's spurred me to re-watch some old favourites.
Hilarious, brilliantly parodies the noir-era, but in a friendly way. "Cleaning Woman!" will have you howling with laughter. And Marlowe may be the best thing about this picture. Everyone needs to see this.
Takes me right to when I saw it in 1982. Still very funny. Film buffs will particularly enjoy it - see it and you will see why I say that (it is not just for the noir setting).
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
