Audience Reviews for The Real McCoy


The Real McCoy has one of the most impossible storylines around. Kim Basinger doing her best while Val Kilmer farts through the bad script.

Steven Vincent Gee

Super Reviewer

kind of touching in a corny way. this movie took itself too seriously, but kim and val do the best they can.


Okay it's kind of old but really addicting in a way. I can't keep my eyes off of it. I just have to keep watching the movie.
