Movie Info

As a result of a misdiagnosis, Detective Burt Simpson (Dabney Coleman) is told he has just weeks to live. He gains a new respect for his life and loved ones but learns that in order for his wife, Carolyn (Teri Garr), and son, Dougie (Kaj-Erik Eriksen), to collect any insurance money, he must be killed in the line of duty. He then becomes the most reckless man on the police force, volunteering for dangerous assignments over the objections of his by-the-book partner, Ernie Dills (Matt Frewer).

    A cop a few days away from retirement, finds out that he has only a few days to live and that his insurance policy only pays out if he dies in the line of duty...so he goes all Mel Gibson trying to die in a blaze of glory. Hilarity ensues.
