A has-been actor best known for playing the title character in the 1980s detective series "Mindhorn" must work with the police when a serial killer says that he will only speak with Detective Mindhorn, whom he believes to be a real person.
I have watched this movie once. This was on .
A washed-up '80s sci-fi TV show detective is summoned back to his home to solve a crime and confront the co-stars he abandoned 25 years ago. This is a hilarious British deadpan comedy in the same style as Alpha Papa – and also stars Steve Coogan – with many tropes poked fun at.
Highlights were the Hollywood sign chase sequence, the “getting into character” phone scene and the carnival float sketch. The movie loses a little of its steam towards the end, with the unnecessary twist. But overall it is full of wit, great oneliners and some wonderful physical comedy too.
