If it had a livelier pace and more believable acting by secondary characters ... Where's Marlowe? would be a big treat for audiences seeking a hip comedy.

Michael Dequina

For all the cleverness in its premise, director-co-scripter Daniel Pyne doesn't mine it for all of its potential.

Entertainment Weekly

Vacant yet convoluted.

E! Online

Well, wherever he is, he's certainly not appearing in this lame satire of '30s and '40s hard-boiled noir -- that's for damn sure.

Where's Marlowe? was expanded from a TV pilot produced for ABC. Small wonder it never found its way on the air.

Matt Reichl

Successful screen humor comes from witty spins on the believable, not wheezing broad stabs like this.
