The wonderful irony is that Dreyfuss is able to blackmail all his former revolutionary friends by threatening to tell everyone all the good things they were a part of. No one needs to know that they might actually be decent, upstanding people.

Never makes its case why we should care about it.

Um detetive politizado que chora ao relembrar os ideais abandonados e que leva seus dois filhos pequenos para ajudá-lo em suas investigações? Só mesmo nos anos 70, bicho!

Audience Reviews for The Big Fix


Dreyfuss as a 60's revolutionary holdover. Look for small bit by F.Murray Abraham as a Abbie Hoffman type.
