The way you describe it is exactly how I felt about it. The acting coupled with the quirks was charming. The story itself lacked a certain something, it could have been solidified with a bit more depth and creativity. That's probably why the ending leaves us wanting more, because it seemed like it ended just as the intrigue started. Was still good enough for me though, I enjoyed it. It could have gone from good to great if the ending what a bit less open ended. Character wise thought I liked it alot, very charming and off beat in its comedic aspects.
