"Der Angestellte einer Firma für Fernseh-Kabelanschlüsse erwählt sich einen seiner Kunden zuerst zum Freund, und als dieser abweisend reagiert, zum Feind. Er bringt ihn um Job und Geliebte und schließlich ins Gefängnis. Die erste "ernste" Rolle für Jim Carrey zeigt seine skurrile Komik in neuem Licht, als Zerrbild des heutigen Medien-Konsumenten, der zwischen Schein und Wirklichkeit nicht mehr unterscheidet und sein Verhalten nach dem Muster von Szenen aus Filmen und Serien richtet. Eine gewitzte Reflexion über die Bewußtseinsinhalte der Menschen, die mit Fernsehen aufgewachsen sind." [film-dienst.de]

Patrick e Angela, amanti nella vita e soci di una piccola agenzia che si occupa della ricerca di persone scomparse, si trovano a dover indagare sul rapimento della piccola Amanda avvenuto nel quartiere disagiato di Boston in cui lo stesso Patrick è cresciuto. Attraverso il circuito degli amici d’infanzia vengono a scoprire che la madre della bambina, tossicomane e spacciatrice, ha rubato una grossa somma al fornitore che gestisce le attività criminali nel quartiere e immaginano che il rapimento sia una forma di ricatto per riottenere il denaro. L’incontro con il boss però sembra non portare a nulla; tuttavia, il giorno dopo vengono contattati proprio dal criminale, attraverso la polizia che sta lavorando al caso, il quale propone lo scambio tra la bambina e la somma di denaro dovuta dalla donna. L’incontro si rivela un’imboscata e la bambina cade accidentalmente in un lago e non viene più ritrovata. Il caso sembrerebbe archiviato, ma qualche mese dopo Patrick si ritrova suo malgrado a partecipare ad una sparatoria in un appartamento in cui un pedofilo tiene sequestrato un bambino; è proprio lui a trovare il piccolo morto nel bagno e, accecato dall’odio, fredda il criminale con un colpo alla nuca. Scagionato dal detective Remy Broussard, lo stesso che aveva partecipato all’indagine precedente, durante uno scambio di battute in cui il poliziotto è ubriaco, viene a sapere alcuni particolari sull’indagine di Amanda che gli fanno rimettere in discussione tutto. Mettendo alle strette lo zio della bambina scopre che il rapimento è stato organizzato dallo stesso detective Broussard che poi ha inscenato l’imboscata uccidendo il boss del quartiere; attraverso ulteriori indagini scopre anche che la morte di Amanda è stata in realtà simulata, mentre la bambina è stata adottata illegalmente dal capitano di Broussard, Jack Doyle, che anni prima aveva perso la figlia a causa di un rapimento finito male. Patrick e Angela si recano a casa del capitano Doyle e trovano Amanda, felice e in salute: di fronte al dubbio morale tra lasciare Amanda a persone che la amano e la curano o restituirla alla madre cocainomane e sbandata, Patrick sceglie quest’ultima soluzione, provocando la reazione sdegnata di Angela che lo abbandona. Nel finale sarà proprio Patrick a fare da baby-sitter ad Amanda, trascurata dalla madre
