He finds a slip of paper containing a list of people who are "The Friends and Enemies of Carlotta." Searching for answers, Rigby encounters assorted low-lives: dangerous men and women who were the hallmarks of the classic detective movies of the 40's and 50's.

"The second in the classic trilogy of film collaborations between director Carl Reiner, writer George Gipe and star Steve Martin, 'Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid' is my favourite of the three. The ingenious premise involves Martin portraying a 40s film noir detective following a case that brings him into contact with some of the biggest stars of the era. This is achieved by working clips from various different classic films of the 40s into the film to make it seem as if Martin is acting alongside Cary"

" 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"
