Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid
Comedy • PG • 1982 • 1 hr 29 min
A simultaneous parody & tribute to detective films with clips from 19 classics integrated & recontextualized to form a hilarious noir comedy
Recommend this movie to a friend as a prank!
Clever writing & editing. Yes pretty silly at times but overall good & fun “cameos”
All these early Steve Martin movie are great.
An early Steve Martin movie. Stylish in the old Noir movie fashion
Works better as a reference guide to film noir than a standalone story
A fair few of the jokes fall flat but the sampling of different noir films to add to the humour and story is very well done.
You know when satire is both overwhelming and underwhelming simultaneously rendering it not funny? This is that.
One of the most overrated comedies of all time.
The kind of screwball comedy hardcore fans of film noir have been waiting their whole lives for! So much fun! Very similar 2 Allen's Zelig🤓
