For Heaven’s Sake

Summary:

Comedians Mike Mildon and Jackson Rowe produce and star in this interesting cross between a comedy and a true-crime documentary produced by Funny or Die. The two best friends head to Ontario, Canada to uncover the truth about the fate of Mildon’s great-great-uncle, Harold Heaven, who disappeared under mysterious circumstances in 1934. It doesn’t sound much like a laughing matter, but the two amateur detectives approach the case by employing every cliche of the true crime genre (of which they are clearly fans), including dramatic re-enactments, interviews with colorful local characters, and the pursuit of personal enlightenment through the act of investigation.
