This is lightweight entertainment, though amusing enough in its way.

Mindhorn (Julian Barratt) is a TV detective from the ‘80s, akin to Bergerac, The Saint, the Bionic Man (the series was actually called The Six Million Dollar Man, of course). Here he (or rather the actor who played him) is brought back to solve a real life crime.

It is a fun film with colourful characters and lots of jokes, some hit, some miss. The memory of Mindhorn is a faux shared experience which we can all buy into.
