The film takes a few detours in what one would expect a story like this to go, once the detective shows up I didn't know if this was suppose to be the same character or if it was a nod to the audience that this was simply a two man show no matter how many characters show up.
Jay and Silent Bob Reboot 6/24/20
What he did next was take the film on a road show tour, where you get a Q&A with him after the movie, this is where I saw the film and his Q&A was longer than the movie.
There are plenty of depressingly dramatic moments scattered throughout this film, which Waititi would employ later on in films like JoJo Rabbit to varying degrees of success.
