The movie is about Jawk a brilliant inventor who spends his time as a detective to catches cheating husband and their mistresses in the act to pay the bills. Along the way he gets caught up personally in one case, and as par the course hilarity ensues. Somewhat.

The acting and direction are fine, even though the writing is a bit fluffy and uneven.
It is an inoffensive movie, and well made, just not the best in the world. That's fine though, and if you are in the mood for a dopey romantic comedy with photogenic actors, give it a shot.
