After abandoning a promising academic career in forensic science, self-styled detective Dough returns to Portland, Oregon to live with his more responsible sister Gail. He lands a dead-end job working in an ice factory, but soon finds an opportunity to use his passion and skill in detective work when his ex-girlfriend Rachel goes missing. Enlisting a team of ramshackle slacker-sleuths, Doug leads the way down a complex trail of clues that brings him close to discovering the truth about Rachel.

If you are an adventurous film watcher, this is a wonderfully rewarding gem. Quirky, unexpected and delicious. My one word review would be "Charming!"

Feels as if i were watching a comic book story acted out with live characters. The life and times of children who just don't want to grow up and face reality. In fact they end up committing crimes, property destruction and theft, in fulfilling their desire to make life bend to their way of thinking. They are no better than the ones who supposedly stole the money from the ex-girlfriend.

This little indie films seems to emphasize everyday middle-class conversation, friendship support, and middle-class work more than any other film that I can think of. And added to the mix is a little Sherlock Holmes type work to obtain the solution to a mystery.

Very good low budget movie. Slow at the start but give it a chance it gets better.

There was little to like about this movie. I realize that it was a low budget production and that it can go either way with this type. However, I found it dark, semi depressing atmosphere, and not very good acting. The story does pick up a bit later on but there are these strange moments where there is just silence and the character's are just sitting or standing. This may have been for artistic reasons, but it leaves the viewer really confused.

OMG, this movie is very slow, but 3/4 through the movie it starts to make sense.

good movie, a little slow, low budget but good picture/sound, good plot and story.

Deadly dull film - barely a plot for a mystery film. Characters are not interesting in the least. This is the kind of independent production that gives "indie films" a bad name.

I enjoyed this quiet little personal film disguised as a detective drama. Portland is shot beautifully too.
