Funny, Gritty, Complexing... the complete Package

I honestly was not expecting such a compelling film out of The Kid Detective. It is a dark comedy in every sense of the word. From beginning to end. There are moments that are drop dead hilarious, and also so sad. Adam Brody plays his role perfectly. It is non-stop melancholy fused with bits of rich humor. I loved it.

Not as fulfilling as I had hoped for.

Being a detective isn't always the most glamorous job in the world, but this film takes it too far in just how slow and boring it can be. Abe Applebaum, our story protagonist, hates his life and drinks it away as he doesn't have any real cases to work on. This film feels more of a documentary of how life sucks as an adult. Of the entirety of this film only the last 10-15 minutes was enjoyable. (Yes, that's typically how films work) However, there should at least feel like there's some build-up to an ending and this film just doesn't do it. We get minimal blips of life, but ultimately it goes from dead one moment to alive the next and then done, walking out the theatre.

Honestly, I'm finding it hard to find words to write a meaningful review on this film. Just like the movie, I'm all over the place and wish I could give you more, but alas you're left thinking, "What was that?" Overall, I could only recommend watching this film on a streaming service. At least if you're going to fall asleep, you can do it at home.

Dark humor and mystery that will leave you speechless

IN A NUTSHELL: This quirky dramedy blends dark humor, mystery, sadness, intrigue, and profound insight. It's a detective story layered with a coming-of-age story and a surprise gut punch. The movie is written and directed by Evan Morgan. I'm now a fan and can't wait to see more from him. Its unconventional look at murder and humor reminded me of the movie Knives Out.

TIPS FOR PARENTS: Talk of a "concubine." Some profanity You see a man snort lines of cocaine. Talk of inappropriate behavior. You see the naked backside of a man. You see the front of a naked woman wearing a mask that covers her face. You see a bloody suicide. Murder Lots of alcohol.

THEMES: Coming-of-age Earning respect How it feels when no one takes you seriously. The theme I thought was the most interesting and compelling was one voiced by Adam Brody's character. He said, "It's difficult to accept who you are in your head and who you really are." Balance Everyone has secrets. Is the truth worth knowing?

THINGS I LIKED: Adam Brody gives a stellar performance in this role. I loved Sophie Nelisse in The Book Thief and haven't seen her in anything else since. She was perfect in her role in this movie too. The subtle humor is hilarious. Abe Applebaum's terrible receptionist was funny and should be fired. Even the side characters are interesting. Several surprising twists. There is a fascinating juxtaposition of sweet, upbeat music and a terrible crime unfolding right before your eyes. The ending gives you a chance to exhale and release your own feelings, along with the protagonist. It's powerful. There is a film noir feel to it but with a more modern spin. Effective editing.

THINGS I DIDN'T LIKE: It starts off quickly, then starts to drag as you try to figure out how things are related. A lot of people mumble, making it difficult to know what's going on. The last 20 minutes of the movie are jaw-dropping and take the movie in a direction you don't quite expect, leaving you utterly speechless.
