The Kid Detective (2020)

A once-celebrated kid detective, now 31, continues to solve the same trivial mysteries between hangovers and bouts of self-pity. Until a naive client brings him his first 'adult' case, to find out who brutally murdered her boyfriend.


This movie connected to me on more levels than I anticipated. Great dark humor and a very tight script make this one of the best movies I’ve seen all year!

I really enjoyed this. Feels like a nice short novel, at times funny, and overall a good murder mystery.

Loved this — it was everything I expected it to be and more. Both an amusing extrapolation of its premise and a solid mystery in its own right, with a surprisingly moving conclusion. One part in particular gave me goosebumps, and you’ve got to love anything that can elicit such a physical reaction.
