Zero Effect (1998)

Directed by Jake Kasdan

The best private investigator film period – and one of the most underrated, under the radar films there is. Bill Pullman’s turn as Daryl Zero is excellent, and Ben Stiller plays the ever-frustrated straight man as well as always. The script is deceptively clever and the twists and turns all slot together in perfect circularity. Also, Daryl Zero’s songs are in themselves worth watching for, as are his logical exclamation points when in non-investigator mode.
