| Notes:1st viewing good fodder. DVD worth the $10.00
This is an entertaining combination of "real life drama" and a superb comic book detective story woven together by the fervent imagination of a man suffering acute pain from his terminal cancer. Turning his mind to these thoughts takes him away from personal pain and transmits it to the character in his fabulously standard format PI Show. Made up from the real events in his own life inserting the actual people who surround him in real life into the roles of the characters in his make-believe life that he escapes to. This world of fantasy is black and white. A dying man seeing absolutes.

As for the movie itself I thought some acting could have been better in the real world parts as opposed to the make-believe world which was meant to be cheesy. But it wasn't bad enough to spoil a good entertaining show that you wouldn't be worried about putting on to watch with your gran and I can't recall any swearing either. So there probably wasn't a lot. Must watch it again one day soon.
