The Kid Detective

Adam Brody (Ready or Not) stars in this modern-day oddball noir as a once-celebrated kid detective who's now a washed-up 32-year-old PI still dealing with children's cases. However, when a client brings him his first ever murder mystery, the self-pitying investigator attempts to step up to the task.

An odd little film that might not hit every high note but its diligent avoidance of ending up where we expect it to makes it hard to shake, a disquieting crime drama where solving the mystery isn't enough to make things better.

Wryly humorous for its first hour or so before getting notably darker, but there’s an undercurrent of melancholy in Brody’s performance throughout that works. Too much of it kind of feels like an aborted TV series visually, but it accomplishes what it sets out to do, even presenting two engaging mysteries.
