"16.02.2014 A parody on film noir. It was funny to see scenes of famous film noir movies combined with new shoots with Steve Martin. The story is not of great importance - it's more or less a series of humorous film compositions. The movie started very funny but to the end it got quite boring. One highlight for me was Rachel Ward - she looked so beautiful in black and white. I could imagine her playing in an old film noir movie."

" Netflix Instant Project 2013 Recommended by moviewatcher122 First impressions of "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" were that I was expecting the typical Film Noir parody with the ridiculous long monologues and the other parodied clichés of this retro genre. This film definitely features that but there is also more interesting things that this parody has to offer. I admit the first half I didn’t really laugh as much as I felt I should. A lot of the jokes didn't really hit that much beyond the oc"

"April 11 "Carlotta was the kind of town where they spell trouble T-R-U-B-I-L, and if you try to correct them, they kill you." After watching Volunteers, I felt like I needed to watch a movie that was actually funny. I saw that this movie was about to play on one of the free movie channels without commercials, so I decided to watch it. This is a spoof of film-noirs and despite the fact that I haven't seen too many, I still thought it was a funny spoof. I thought Steve Martin was just as funny"

" 21/4/12 One of Steve Martin's best imo. The integration of the clips from film noir movies was genius. I can't imagine how long it must have taken them to plan out this movie."

"First viewing - Jan. 4th Supposedly this is a comedy, but in the however-long I watched of it I hardly laughed. And before long I was falling asleep out of boredom with it, so I turned it off to clean the kitchen & go to bed. It failed to lure me in, and then the choice of working in footage from other films just to have Martin's character interact with them felt more gimmicky than anything else. Perhaps a different mood would earn a more favorable response from me, but I have no plans to tak"
