    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The year is 1978. Carson Philips (Travolta), a P.I, lives in Los Angeles with his beloved cat Raymond. Carson was a highschool football player, a good one at that, one of the best. Carson doesn't seem to love his life at the moment, except his cat of course.
