Additional Info

Sam Spud, Private Eye is a parody of the cheap detective novel. Sam Spud is a down-on-his-luck private eye with a fondness for junk food and cliches. He is convinced that his down-to-earth secretary Jane Reynolds has a crush on him. Lula Baum-Schell, a gorgeous former model and actress, hires Sam to help find her husband, Edward, a wealthy dogfood magnate. Police detective Inspector Oiseau complicates matters because he hates Sam for making him smell bad in the "Velveeta Cheese" case. Will Sam be able to solve this case before the kidnappers kill Edward? Your guess is as good as ours! A fun, silly noir-style comedy that high schools could really have a blast with!
