Movie Info

A plucky kid puts herself in peril when she matches wits with three scheming criminals in Ace the Case: Manhattan Mystery, a suspenseful Manhattan mystery and family comedy caper from writer, director and producer Kevin Kaufman. Left in the care of her teenage brother Miles (Aaron Sauter) while their mom is out of town, 10-year-old Olivia Haden (Ripley Sobo) takes her dog Charlie for a late-night walk and witnesses a brazen kidnapping on the deserted streets of New York City. But when she tells Miles what she has seen, he dismisses her, and when she reports it to the NYPD, only a sympathetic detective named Dottie (Academy Award (R)-winner Susan Sarandon) will even listen. Without solid evidence, there's nothing Dottie can do, so the intrepid tween sets out to solve the crime herself. Facing down a trio of bumbling crooks, a mysterious fixer toting an oversized bunny, and a rapidly ticking clock, Olivia crisscrosses lower Manhattan in an exciting family-oriented thriller sure to delight kids of all ages, as well as their parents.

Too violent and dark for kids but too juvenile and bland for grown-ups.

A caper movie runs on calibrated chaos. Too much randomness makes the gears grind; too little and it feels overdetermined. Ace the Case has both problems.

This kiddie crime caper promises fun, but delivers clueless disappointment instead.

Helping us suspend disbelief here is Ripley Sobo, one of the most talented little girls I've seen on screen in a long time.

Tween detective story is surprisingly violent, dark in tone.
