Gabby (Gabriella Pastore) and Lulu (Ja'ness Tate), two girls in their early teens, find themselves at the end of the school year with little to do in their quiet middle class neighbourhood - so when there was a break-in into one of the neighbours' houses who just wanted to turn their home into an Air B&B, much to the dismay of the locals, the girl see a chance to escape boredom and do some digging. So under the pretense of doing a project for the next school year, they start to investigate - but they really mess up with their first suspect, jumping to conclusions way too quickly. However they have more success once they start listen to all the gossip in town, divide fact from hyperbole, and probe into the past of the couple that got robbed (Kim Akia, Donvan Williams), their gardener (Orlando Cortez), and the assumed "rich guy" (Tim Davidson). And with the help of the eccentric owners of the local bakery (Carlos Coleman, Catarah Hampshire), they soon dig up enough evidence to pinpoint the culprits of the case. Unfortunately, their suspects have long grown wise to their game, and it soon turns into a game of cat-and-mouse, with Gabby and Lulu being the mice ...

 

Now to kick this off one can't overstate this is a movie made for the whole family, so per definition there can't be no murder or other gruesomeness, and the suspense has to be kept tame for the sake of the younger viewers, so one can't really expect a Hitchcock-ian thriller here, and also not too complex a mystery. Instead this film is sweet and wholesome, might not be aiming too high but tells its story swiftly but in an entertaining way, has a likeable couple of investigators and features some rather spirited performances to support them. Of course, being in the actual target group for the movie (tweens and early teens) might heighten the enjoyment of this film, but for what it is it's a really good effort!
