3 November 1999 | FISHCAKE
It's Wombaugh, but something seems lost in translation to film
This is recognizably Wombaugh's later style of private eye yarn, but something may have been lost in putting it on the tube. He is always more interested in character development than plotting, but the interesting plot lines here all seem to fizzle out in unsatisfactory dead ends. Teri Garr is worth watching as a female shamus as she takes on a job of shadowing a wealthy client's husband who seems unaccountably interested in a sperm bank. Teri enlists the aid of a boozy cop and they keep dodging a seemingly mad killer who keeps crossing their path. That's all I'm going to say about the plot, which is full of surprises. You'll have to find out for yourself if you like the way it turns out. One thing, we never do learn if Teri gets paid. I said paid.
