    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.

    Great film.

    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. 1 year 11 months ago

    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). 4 years 1 month ago
