Fast Company / Fast and Loose / Fast and Furious

We detect a book-smart mystery series.


Rod Lott
In tacking the word “fast” onto each of these three comedy-minded mysteries, MGM wasn’t joking. Not only are the running times of the films brief, but its lead characters rattle through their dialogue like a teenager to pizza.

Stark raving average.


Rod Lott
While it's admirable that Parker is dedicated to the memory of Donald E. Westlake, the legendary crime author who wrote two dozen novels about the character under the Richard Stark pen name, this Parker is not his Parker. It's Taylor Hackford's, and the director continues to apply his nondescript, workmanlike touch to average material (see Love Ranch, Ray, Proof of Life, etc.). He neither improves it nor harms it; he simply keeps it afloat.
