Terry is off-duty and has been drinking but rescues a young girl for a dangerous fire. When he injures himself in the fire and is hospitalized, New York City refuses to pay for his medical expenses because he was intoxicated during the rescue.

Besides its compelling storyline, Turk 182! features outstanding performances across the board, with Hutton perfect in the role of the determined unassuming hero.

Sure, it would be neat to see a movie about a guy like this. But not this movie.

A film that will have scholars scratching their heads in 2027, this is a film that won't change your life in any way, shape or form, but makes for a decent 3AM TV diversion.

Audience Reviews for Turk 182!

I understood the whole idea in this film about government not taking care of the people in our country, but after watching all these crazy antics Jimmy does in the movie it doesn't seem as important as him becoming a folk hero. So I think this movie was starting out good, but kinda got lost, so it's not the best.

From Bob Clark, the man who gave us Porky's, Porky's II, Rhinestone, and A Christmas Story (talk about running the gamut) comes the story of Jimmy Lynch, a young man who tries to get justice for his firefighter brother when he's injured trying to rescue a little girl from a burning building, while off duty. He wages a graffiti war against the mayor of New York City, who may have covered up for a corrupt political ally. In doing so, he becomes a folk hero to the people of the city. Timothy Hutton stars as Jimmy, aka "Turk 182". Kim Cattrall is a social worker who joins in his fight. Robert Urich co-stars as Jimmy's injured brother, who's so disturbed over his ordeal that actaully attempts suicide. Peter Falk and Darren McGavin are the detectives hot on Jimmy's trail. It may sound heavy handed, but it's actually lighter than it sounds. Hutton makes Jimmy extremely likeable, and you can't help but root for him. Clark creates a real feel for NYC by making use of many landmarks including Giants Stadium and the Queensboro Bridge. A good time movie.
