This might be the funniest movie I've seen all year or I just had really low expectations. Either way, I don't care cause I enjoyed it.
Adam Brody shines as the cynical former kid detective who is desperate to prove himself. His antics aren't really special nor original when it comes to solving cases: he can pick a lock, hide in a closet or break into someone's house. What makes his character so fun to watch on screen is that they managed to make the idea of a 32 year old man being a former kid detective both absurd and depressing.
Absurd at how the townfolks used to rely on him so much, and depressing on how the townfolks used to rely on him so much.
Halfway through it I thought this movie was about the pressure others put on you, but at the end, we're just really putting that exact pressure on ourselves.
