Streaming something random you don’t know much about is sometimes what you have to do. No Clue is one such film.
No Clue (2014) Film Review
Working as an advertising gimmick salesman, Leo Falloon (Brent Butt) has his life changed when a woman walks into his office. Looking for her brother she mistakes Leo as the private detective inside the office building. Kyra (Amy Smart) is a beautiful and smart woman, but Leo’s friend Ernie (David Koechner) thinks there’s something funny about all of this. Still, not having the heart to tell her the truth, Leo investigates Kyra’s case.
What he finds is a curious line of suspects and maybe a knack for this game.

A Canadian film with a largely Canadian cast, this isn’t something I knew much about. Like others I spy when browsing this one kept showing up on Amazon. So finally, I did decide to watch it. Fun thing is, unless it’s the period British shows, I don’t see many kinds of “cozy” modern movies. This has been called a dark comedy and while there is some of that, too, it’s mostly a comedy with some funny shenanigans.
Though not in main roles, you’ll see a familiar Hallmark star or two. Beyond this, the film is pretty much just a silly little mystery. It’s fun to watch and see what comes of all the investigations and the missteps Leo makes, too. Most of which have a kind of comedic aspect backing them up. In some ways, the film leans into the absurd, and in others, it can be grounded and quite funny too.
If you like a little mystery that isn’t creepy on movie night, let this be your clue to watch it. It’s different than most in its genre, however it still works if you watch it as a fun distraction.

Content: this has some profanity and minor suggestive humor. There are some “threats,” and there’s a gun a time or two. There’s a dead body in two scenes but nothing too graphic. The film is PG-13.
