Movie Info

A string of murders have taken place in Washington, D.C., but the officers assigned to the case, Mac (Gene Hackman) and Ellis (Dan Aykroyd), have to deal with their own conflicts first. The grizzled Mac is perpetually annoyed by the undeniably brilliant yet troubled Ellis, who, in times of stress, tends to blackout and adopt the personalities of pop culture icons. And the investigation sure gets stressful, as the cops trace the killings to German politician Von Metz (Robert Prosky), an ex-Nazi.

  • Jun 26, 2012
    Looking for an interesting combination in casting? well look no further, Dan Aykroyd, Gene Hackman and Dom Deluise head this cop buddy flick. This film followed on from the popularity of the 'Lethal Weapon' franchise as did many others of the era and they are all pretty much the same. The unique carrot on a stick here is the casting really. It certainly is an interesting choice, 80's motor mouthed quirky comedy legend Aykroyd, hard assed no nonsense Hackman and farcical spoof maestro Deluise (of the Mel Brooks/Gene Wilder spoof pack) all thrown together. This is the films downfall basically, the three leads are totally incompatible and never gel. The film is your usual regular mismatched cop duo comedy/thriller with all the regular mismatched cop duo moments and sequences you would expect. Action is slow (with Deluise it has to be) and uninspiring and the attempted funny moments are just poor. Aykroyd is suppose to have a multiple personality disorder which you would think could be comedy gold...it isn't, its embarrassing to watch. Pretty much a complete failure on all aspects, Hackman just doesn't fit into this kind of lunacy and it shows. Tries to be along the same lines as 'See No Evil, Hear No Evil' with Wilder and Pryor but doesn't come close.

    Could be funniest, could be more good writing, could be fresh... but isn't.

    Only a few funny scenes provided by Dan Aykroyd, including one in which he imitates the Road Runner, save this uneven cop comedy.
