Detective Sadie And Son is a heartwarming comedy-drama film made in 1987 that stars Debbie Reynolds, Brian McNamara, and Cynthia Dale. The movie is directed by Waris Hussein and written by Wanda and Tom Stack. The story revolves around the life of a detective named Sadie Chase (Debbie Reynolds) who is best known for her ability to solve the toughest of crimes in her town. After the sudden and tragic death of her husband, she is left alone to raise her only son Mike (Brian McNamara) who also aspires to follow in her footsteps as a detective. However, Sadie is reluctant to allow her son to pursue this dangerous profession and tries to steer him towards a safer path.

It is not until a wealthy businessman is brutally murdered in their town that Sadie and Mike join forces to solve the case. Along the way, they face some tough challenges and unexpected situations that force them to work together closely. Their detective work leads them towards some surprising discoveries, and they even find themselves in danger on more than one occasion.

The mother-son dynamic is at the core of Detective Sadie And Son, and Debbie Reynolds and Brian McNamara deliver some fantastic performances. Reynolds excels as the tough and uncompromising detective who is fiercely protective of her son and determined to keep him safe. McNamara, on the other hand, brings a youthful exuberance to his role as he tries to carve out his own path in life while dealing with his grief over losing his father.

The chemistry between the leads is fantastic, and the film does an excellent job of balancing the serious crime element with some lighthearted comedic moments. The supporting cast, especially Cynthia Dale as Sadie's friend and colleague, brings a lot of humor to the film, and their interactions with Sadie and Mike provide some much-needed levity.

The film also features some stunning cinematography, with the small town setting providing a warm and inviting backdrop for the story to unfold. The music is also memorable, with the catchy theme tune perfectly capturing the spirit of the film.

Overall, Detective Sadie And Son is a heartfelt and enjoyable family movie that features some standout performances from Debbie Reynolds and Brian McNamara. Its combination of crime drama and comedy makes it a unique and entertaining entry in the detective movie genre.
