Decently entertaining comic mystery based on a cleverly amusing premise. Danny Huston is a great deal of fun in the lead, and the supporting cast is up to the task. Where it runs into problems is with its tone, breezy and tongue-in-cheek at first, but it looses its way as it transitions into darker intrigue. Doesn't completely live up to its potential, but an enjoyable enough watch.
