Rent-a-Cop Movie Reviews

Are you not entertained???

Well I was entertained. I like it. Sue me! I’m not saying it’s art but it’s an enjoyable time-passer of a movie. I’m not sure if I would call it a romantic comedy since there’s a lot of violence and dark parts but there is comedy and there is romance so…yeah. Seems like most Burt Reynolds movies I like are the ones most people hate and the ones most people like I don’t care much for. Anyway Burt isn’t even the best part here. The best part is Liza Minnelli, who I’m not normally a fan of but she’s good here. Also James Remar’s psycho villain has some memorable scenes.

Low-rent, but maybe worth a rent.

A low-rent, cheaply made police thriller that’s kept bearable by some fair humorous bits, the nice chemistry between the two leads and, especially, by James Remar’s satisfying turn as a narcissistic, psychopathic (and, naturally, indestructible) villain. Obviously a low-quality picture, both visually and dramatically, with a rather resigned Burt, but not unwatchable. (**)

Pros make the most out of silly script…

Motorcycle helmet-wearing psycho thwarts a hotel drug bust by the Chicago police force, leaving several cops dead plus $2M of the department’s money and three keys of smack missing. Seasoned vet Burt Reynolds is the only one to survive the ambush–he and chatty hooker Liza Minnelli, who was with a trick that night after getting a good look at the killer sans helmet. Not exactly sophisticated, but a reasonably entertaining action-thriller with comedic and romantic asides. Reynolds and Minnelli are too old for their roles, but Liza at least gives her all (she “won” a Razzie Award for this performance, but she’s a comfortable match for her aging co-star–she keeps his head up). James Remar is an interesting villain (a fired cop and former ballroom dancing instructor who reeks of liniment!), but Dionne Warwick as a madam, Robby Benson as a rookie, and Richard Masur as a dirty ex-cop (speaking with a ridiculous nasal voice) are all pretty bad. Chicago locations were used, but most of the movie was shot in Italy (hence all the Italian names in the end credits). If a you’re a fan of the stars, this could rate as a guilty pleasure, although there’s nothing cheesy about Jerry Goldsmith’s fine score or Giuseppe Rotunno’s sharp cinematography (which includes a wonderful opening shot flying over the city). **1/2 from ****
