    It's a hard crime story about a Philadelphia shop owner who has enough of the criminals' violences and ravages. He organizes a patrol of civil people. It all starts to go wrong because his teams actions are taken as racial discrimination.

    Film noir parody with a detective uncovering a sinister plot. Characters from real noirs appear as scenes from various films are intercut.

    The premise to Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid is pretty simple,  film noir movies by inserting old movie clips and have Steve Martin say things that turn serious lines from those movies into jokes. While we're at it, throw in sexy Rachel Ward. It sounds like it could have been a really…
