I would like to first off say, that I absolutely hate it when the characters address the camera like they are talking with the watcher. Its interrupts the story and tells me as the viewer that the person who wrote the script couldn't figure out how to convey important information in an entertaining way, but instead, they are just going to tell you what it its. It's lazy.

With this being said, I gave this movie 3 out of five stars. The acting was great, the characters were well written, but the format sucked. 

Enola is a bad ass young woman with the whit of her older brother, Sherlock. She manages to get herself into some pretty crazy situations, but in the end, solves the crime and saves the day.


  1. Not the best movie out there, but it's a cute film with a nice overall message.
    Now I really feel like pickung up the books as well!

    1. I didn't know this was also a book. I'm going to have to look into this!
