Channelling the twin spirits of The Big Lebowski and Chinatown, Chris Pine’s directorial debut is a snappy, big-screen comedy that’s guaranteed to delight.

Each day, bumbling poolman/civic crusader Danny takes the good fight to City Hall. But when a mysterious femme fatale calls on him to bust a grand conspiracy that goes right to the top of the political food chain, things get real. Danny packs his walkie-talkies, rallies his besties and and embarks on a mission to restore rightful justice. Unsurprisingly, hilarity ensues. With its all-star cast and self-deprecating wit, this is an impressive outing by star and filmmaker Pine.
