The best thing about this movie is it's own preview, which is tightly edited, funny, and very entertaining. The movie itself is not so great. This was an attempt to parody the 1940's private detective genre, the type of Sam Spade/Phillip Marlowe roles that Bogart played. I'm a fan of Jace Rocker comedies, but this one fell flat. It simply wasn't funny, even where it could have been.

It is supposed to be set in New York City, the "Big Apple" but, last time I checked, they don't have many palm trees in New York, nor a lot of pools in the back yards. The end credits state that it was shot "on location in Southern California" but that was a) not where the movie is set (in other words, not the location), and b) painfully obvious throughout. The sets are cheesy and cheap looking. A better approach would have been to use actual footage from old 1930s and 1940s movies for all of the exterior shots, per Steve Martin's "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" (although that would probably have caused too many copyright problems).
Despite the presence of the always wonderful Asia Carrera, the sex was pretty much by the numbers. Fortunately, Chloe does a couple of scenes and she is always very demonstrative about her pleasures. Extras include a slide show and about 9 previews. The video and audio quality are very good. I can't recommend this one, even though I have a soft spot for attempts at plots and attempts at humor. The acting is bad, it's not funny, and the sex is routine.
