I've been meaning to see this one since it came out in the theaters, but always, for one reason or another, I hadn't been able to. Having finally seen it, I know why I was so excited to. It's one of those movies, where they managed not to put all the good bits into the trailer. It was violent, the characters were well beyond quirky, they were downright deranged in some ways. The movie was seriously funny though. It was a crazy crime story, the characters were in one of those novels, and knew it, and read those books, and it was all really funny.
Pulp detective comedy.
