Movie Info

J. (George Segal) used to be a hairdresser, but now he's found a new profession: heroin junkie. On the mean streets of New York City, he scrounges for his next fix -- mooching from his best friend, Billy Dynamite (Jay Fletcher), and doing odd jobs for a drug dealer known as The Geek. But J. soon finds it more lucrative to work as an informer to the police. Meanwhile, he begins a tenuous romance with Parm (Karen Black), a woman he met while trying to steal her car.

Audience Reviews for Born to Win

    Why is Robert DeNiro on the cover?? He was in 5 minutes of the whole movie! Overall, I thought this film sucked, but George Segal was good in the role that was given to him and made it semi-worthwhile watching one time.

    Robert De Niro fans be prepared for disappointment, De Niro's performance throughout the film, probably adds up to around 5 minutes. The star of course was George Segal whol played a pretty interesting character, however the film did have it's fair share of boring parts, although something made me still want to keep watching VERDICT: Certainly not one to watch over and over, but probably worth a watch

    DeNiro's hardly in it; the gifts of George Segal are almost the whole movie; a queasy feeling when we never know whether someone is making a bad move or a fatal one
