Abigail Marks

"I learned everything I know from I Love Lucy episodes"

-- Abigail explains her M.O.

The rainbow connection?

The 2007 indie film 2 Minutes Later is soaking in it.

Hard-drinking, hard-boiled lesbian private detective ABIGAIL MARKS is hired by Michael Dalmar (who's gay, but having problems with it) to find his identical twin brother, Kyle, a high-flying photographer with no hang-upss about his sexuality, who seems to take an awful lot of pictures of people without any clothes on.

All the better, of course, to feature plenty of nude shots.

Unfortunately, xcept for the focus on homosexuality, this one could have been a cheesy straight-to-cable flick straight from the eighties. The so-so plot, the so-so acting and the competent but perfunctory direction all add up to nothing special.

Not particularly bad; just not particularly good, either. That it panders to a slightly different crowd than it would have thirty or forty years ago doesn't make it a better film.

Although the notion that Abigail and Michael will someday return (as "the new queer crime fighting duo," as the tagline goes, and as the closing credits seem to suggest) is an interesting idea.
