Noticing that so many people seem to have missed this movie, I feel obliged to state that I am a long-time fan of the Car-pax-man. I first caught his talent in a short-lived television series, which I adore. I remember feeling that there was something new about his natural animation, the way he showed his characters in a simple but very vivid way. He also got the whole serious thing right: he really was able to convey the feelings of a detective on a low budget. The car-pax-man series had a kind of flaw which affected the quality of the episodes: there was a certain emphasis on his physical movements and expressions. This might be because Car-pax-man was a short-lived TV series, which was very difficult to work with on television, as every hour of an hour was devoted to the character's actions. When the series went out of the television, I was a little bit disappointed, as I felt that the car-pax-man had an intensity that was lacking. However, I was very surprised to see that this movie was made, and also to find out that many people were so familiar with the original series that they actually saw the movie as a kind of introduction to the series. The car-pax-man never really evolved from a simple but very vivid comic, into a complex and intricate comic. In this movie, he seems to be the most natural comic character, and therefore, his work as a comic was also a more realistic and direct comic than in the TV series. I'm not the only one who enjoyed this movie: it was voted one of the top ten movies of 2002, and it has also been voted #5 on IMDb's top 250 movies. Personally, I think it's a shame that the movie was not shown on television in the US, as it could have been a great success. What else could a movie be compared with the TV series?
