Performances by a fine ensemble cast are mangled almost as badly as the English language in this wandering comedy-mystery. Trixie (Watson) is a malaprop-spouting security guard at a resort casino who wants to be a detective. She stumbles onto a murder mystery involving bombastic Senator Avery (Nolte) and decides that if she solves the crime, a career as a detective will surely follow. Many false leads are chased, and the theme that not everyone is as they appear is hammered home time and time again. Among the list of usual suspects are a golddigging barfly (Murphy), a washed-up lounge singer (Warren), a two-bit ladies man (Mulroney) and an impressionist/singer with a shady past (Lane).
