There are such great gags, and it is acted with such fanatical gusto by Barratt that it's impossible not to root for this unlikeliest of heroes.

Guardian

It's truth time!

This directional debut from Sean Foley is a farcical new comedy and cult classic in the making. Co-written and starring The Mighty Boosh’s Julian Barratt, the film follows his ageing 80s TV cop Mindhorn as he’s brought in to help with a real life serial killer, who thinks Barrett’s blustering buffoon is the real deal.

Mindhorn’s clueless, self-involved ex-B lister brings to mind other British TV greats like Alan Patridge, with Steve Coogan making an appearance as Mindhorn’s more successful rival.

Barratt’s misguided but undeniably likeable Mindhorn is the driving force for this hilarious and outrageous take on showbiz.
