Robert Zemeckis never disappoints. Zemeckis’ take on a 40s noir detective movie reworked as a well crafted mix of zany action, relatable characters and a coherent plot facilitated by Zemeckis’ technical talent and the clever device of making the action happen in the late 40s (a stand-in of our childhood - even if in many cases we weren’t yet born or even our parents) does a great job of keeping us entertained.

Only mystery to me is what did Jessica see in Roger not only to get attracted to but also marry him.
