An excellent film - one of my favorite 'new watches' of the year, and this from a person who doesn't traditionally watch 'who dun it' mysteries'. One of the factors that makes the film so appealing and accessible to audiences is that it spoofs the mystery genre (among other things), and isn't afraid to go to high or low for the sake of comedy. The comedy beats and dialog are fantastic, with very few (close to none) sections that didn't land well. The cast is top-notch, starting with Daniel Craig as the southern detective chock full of clichés and proverbs. The movie lends itself well to multiple viewings because the content is just that good, packed with so many jokes and quick moments, you might miss something on the first go-round, but you may catch it again later.
