I was running out of movies to rent at the local dvd rental store and the new releases which I was interested had already been rented out so I settled on Flypaper. I had not heard of it before, but the synopsis had sounded interesting enough. I had the impression that it was some type of action drama. I was wrong. It is a actually a comedy.
We mostly follow Patrick Dempsey's character, a neurotic man caught in two simultaneous bank robberies at the same bank. Trapped and unable to go to the pharmacy to get his meds, he becomes increasing neurotic. He's also very perceptive, quite the Sherlock Holmes. Believing that there is no coincidence, he becomes obsessed with unraveling the mystery why the two robberies were occurring.
This movie was quite a surprise to me. There's quite a few twists and turns, none of which I anticipated. And it's such a short movie. Only 87 minutes and packs quite a lot of laughs and action. Its funny and I found myself really enjoying it.
