Michael Keaton plays a cop who finds himself taking care of his partner's 3 girls after he's killed. He finds himself doing things that he wouldn't usually do, in order to support them.

The movie is a little routine with the usual "hand in your badge" type of stuff that you usually get in Hollywood cop dramas. While it's overdone with how we're constantly reminded why he's doing what he's doing. I mean, the movie has to keep showing that the kids are cute and that he cares about them.

The movie also throws a big typical action movie shoot-out at us in the end that doesn't really fit in with the rest of the movie. However, I still like the movie due to the under-rated Michael Keaton that a lot of people dislike for no good reason. Rene Russo also does fine work as his wife. While Racgel Ticotin (Total Recall) isn't bad either a woman cop investigating him.
