DOWN & DIRTY:
Drama: A private detective finds his method of professional objectivity threatened when he begins to fall for a woman involved in his latest investigation.

NITTY GRITTY:
Gregory Stark (RYAN O'NEAL) is a Portland timber tycoon with two big problems. He's lost the keys to his safety deposit box and he's fallen prey to a blackmailer to whom he's already paid several large sums of money.

Not knowing what else to do, he hires Daryl Zero (BILL PULLMAN), the best private detective money can buy...he's also a social oddball who is afraid to leave his home when not working.

He also never meets any of his clients, instead he has them go through his front-man, Steve Arlo (BEN STILLER). Stark gives Arlo little to work with regarding the case, and Arlo in turn delivers the scant information to Zero.

Believing that observation and personal detachment are the most important keys to solving a case, Zero heads off to watch Stark and begin collecting clues.

Gloria Sullivan (KIM DICKENS), a mysterious paramedic, picks up the blackmail payment. Zero begins to lose his objectivity as he slowly starts to fall in love with her. As he begins to close in on the circumstances of the case, Zero soon learns the sordid details behind it all while trying to remain as objective as possible.

THE ENDING:
Sullivan gets away with the money. Zero eats tuna fish from the can and awaits his next case.

WHAT EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT:
This guy (Bill Pullman) is the same guy who played the President in Independence Day?
