All I can say about this movie is "wow". Not that I'm blown away by it, but that I can't believe that the cast was that hard up for cash to make this loser. And the biggest joke is the title - but what is worse is that the joke's on you.

This film features one of the most unusual concepts for a protagonist ever: a beer-swilling, ill-tempered, and all around unlikable detective named Mitchell. Joe Don Baker puts in little effort as the protagonist, and neither does the rest of the second string cast try to excel. The plot is incomprehensible and the action scenes boring and repetitive. The script is pretty flimsy, sometimes with 2 or 3 subplots going their own directions and then somehow overlapping, which doesn't quite work. There are so many bad guys around that for some reason you can never quite figure out who is crossing whom, and what each person's relation to another is. Towards the end, it starts to become more apparent, but hardly any more exciting.

Then, Joe Don Baker as Mitchell really does a poor job, though I don't think it's quite his fault alone. Such appalling stuff can't be done alone and the character can take half the blame, too. I mean, a boozing slob of a cop is not exactly what you envision when you think of great detectives.

The love scenes between Joe Don Baker and Linda Evans should have been left on the cutting room floor. Even if it did have a likable protagonist, this movie would still be dull, confusing, and virtually unwatchable. The lead character makes this movie transcend mediocrity and enter the realms of the absolute dump.
