Love is the only lead worth following! Tom Berenger (Shattered) and Anne Archer (Fatal Attraction) team with an all-star cast, including Elizabeth Perkins (He Said, She Said), Ted Levine (Ali), Ann Magnuson (Panic Room), Kate Capshaw (Love Affair) and songwriter Neil Young, in this "giddy, quirky and wonderful-to-watch movie" (Judith Crist) that delves into more than just the mysteries of love! Harry Dobbs (Berenger) takes his job as a private detective seriously. Hired by a mysterious seductress (Archer) to follow her boyfriend, Harry soon discovers that the man he's following is not so much the marrying kind...as he is the murdering kind! And it'll take the help of another sleuth (Perkins) - hired to keep an eye on Harry - to capture this dangerous lothario and steal Harry's heart in the process!

It turns out to be a comedy, however, as Berenger tails the wrong guy but finds things interesting as they are. Then Berenger's girlfriend gets nervous and hires a female detective (Elizabeth Perkins) to spy on him, so everyone is watching everyone!
Although there isn't a lot of action, the film never drags and is a good combination of suspense, humor and drama/action. Also nice is the soundtrack, a "Midnight Run" sound with good blues guitar and trumpet plus a Leonard Cohen song to start the film. Good colors add to everything.
On the negative side, I didn't care for the ending regarding Archer, nor understand why she did what she did. Also, everyone in the film is a bit too sleazy. The other fault likes not in the movie but in the DVD which had a very weak transfer. Overall, fun for a couple of looks.
I get what the film was trying to do but it just didn't cut it. If you want to see hilarious films that poke fun at old-time film noir crime flicks check out, Fatal Instinct with Armand Assante and Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid with Steve Martin. Both are funny and ten times better than this. I think this film would've been funnier if they'd made it into a comedic western. The private investigator parody has been done tons of times before and better.
