Performers, Cast and Crew:
Movieline's Hollywood Life - 09/01/1998
"...Together, Kasdan and Pullman have created a singularly fascinating character....You're unlikely to find a more satisfying, if outré, offering..."
Sight and Sound - 09/01/1998
"...The film's resolutely linear plot unfurls with crisp economy -- neatly propelled by the Greyboy Allstars' funk soundtrack and enlivened by some smart dialogue..."
Entertainment Weekly - 07/17/1998
"...[Kasdan] is clever and sly....[Pullman] makes an entrancing freakazoid..."
New York Times - 01/30/1998
"...Both Mr. Pullman and the slyly restrained Mr. Stiller keep their characters entertaining..."
Box Office - 02/01/1998
"...[A] sharp, original, unflaggingly hilarious debut....The wryly intelligent, creative script serves the story, the characters and the actors well, never disappointing in ingenuity or opportunities for uncanny comic timing..." -- 4 out of 5 stars
Los Angeles Times - 01/30/1998
"...ZERO EFFECT is a confident first film and one of the freshest detective yarns to come along in a while..."
When a blackmailed millionaire mislays his safety-deposit box keys, it sounds like a job for mysterious, antisocial private detective Daryl Zero, whose crack powers of deduction are strong enough to estrange him from the rest of humanity--except for his partner and "translator." But a suspect in the case, a lovely paramedic, engages in a battle of wits with Zero, bringing him out of his shell and complicating the case. An engaging and disarmingly fresh first effort from Kasdan.
