It didn't work. There's not a movie here.

Grafting a murder-mystery atop the celebrity interview spoof shtick, the film plays like a silly skit drawn out over an hour and a half.

This character does much better in 5 minute increments as opposed to a whole show - let alone a full-length movie! Martin Short is funny, but this is something… More
