  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brett | 12/6/2009

    " The mystery story line was really secondary to the humor, which was fantastic & dead-on, although I fear it could be lost on its target audience. A perfect sendup of the "hard-boiled" gumshoe genre. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michele | 11/24/2009

    " I liked it for the word play, which introduces lots of fun possibilities to kids, but not so much for the stereotyping - dumb jocks, male ego, etc. "
