The Wrong Guy ★★★½

Film Club #5

Pretty much a live action cartoon.
I appreciated how the movie does its best to subvert any tropes these kinds of movies would have you expect. One of my favorite characters is the fat detective that clearly doesn’t care about the case and just uses the department’s money to pretty much take a vacation while pretending to be working.
What holds this back from being great is it goes a little too over the top. Dave Foley’s performance ranges from hilarious to hilariously bad, he’s not really a great actor but he’s a pretty solid comedian. Definitely an entertaining ride, I appreciate the self awareness and the subversions the movie makes, just nothing too amazing.
