Elliott Gould as Marlowe??! WTF?? Who’s the brainiac that made that casting decision? Chandler had to have rolled over in his grave several times when this was released.
Some douche bag decided to doodle over the price with a blue ballpoint pen. They should’ve doodled over Gould and his friggin’ cat. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t have a thing against Elliott Gould… as long as he isn’t playing Marlowe.
