Mr. DuLac’s review:
It's okay with me.
Elliott Gould's take on Philip Marlowe is pretty damn fantastic. Every line of dialogue from him, whether in a conversation or muttering to himself, is entertaining. There's a scene of him shopping for cat food that has more entertainment value in it then the entire last movie I watched.
The movie isn't great because of the plot. It's great because of Elliot Gould, witty dialogue, great characters, atmosphere and tone. The hook of the film is that essentially you have a 1950s private eye, complete with P.I. moral code, in the 1970s. The cast is fantastic, but again it's Gould that makes the entire movie work so well.
