Movie Info

In this action-comedy, a urine sample mix-up leads Officer Burt Simpson (Dabney Coleman) to believe that he only has a short time to live. Set to retire, Burt realizes that the insurance payoff for a death in the line of duty would leave his son (Kaj-Erik Eriksen) and his ex-wife (Terri Garr) financially well-off. As Burt attempts to put himself in the line of fire, his suicidal actions fail to get him killed, but earn him a number of medals for his heroic actions.
