Enjoy, it's fun and funny.

The problem is the farcical nature of the material and the convoluted plot.

Clint Eastwood is my hero!

I love movies set in this era. I love the clothes, the cars, the music; it was just a simpler time in America's history.

Burt Reynolds and Clint Eastwood play off of each other so well and the one-liners are hilarious. Great plot, great comedy, and great fun.

Reynolds when Eastwood walks unannounced into the office: "I didn't hear you knock."

Eastwood: "What a relief. I thought I was going deaf."

These two constantly banter like this throughout the whole fim and it's always funny.

Give this fun flick a try.

I'm not sure what people expected of this movie, but if you forget about who the actors are in this movie and just watch it for fun, it's a hoot! Sure, the plot's a little thin, but it's a comedy, who cares. Enjoy, it's fun and funny.

Clint Eastwood and Bert Reynolds star in this light hearted spoof of the hard nosed private eye and cop movies.
Reynolds is the smart a$$ private eye and Eastwood is the hard as nails cop in this romp into the 1930s as they battle bootleggers,
gangsters, and each other. Eastwood often plays straight man to Reynolds wisecracking character.
There are many gags and laughs in the film, but it`s what I call a soft spoof. It`s not a wild crazy spoof like "Airplane", It`s
more along the lines of the western spoof "My Name is Nobody". Rather than go for wild crazy gags, they exaggerate the tough guy
movie just enough to make it funny. And it works well.

"City Heat" (1984) is a nostalgic throwback to those Spencer Tracy-Clark Gable vehicles of the late 1930s. It's lightweight stuff, but Clint Eastwood and Burt Reynolds make a good team in this Prohibition-era caper. The star chemistry compensates for a weak script and troubled production history (Clint selected director Richard Benjamin after a falling out with original collaborator Blake Edwards - alias Sam O. Brown in the final credits). Though a disappointment with critics and audiences, Clint and Burt have done much worse.

As a Clint Eastwood fan, I could not pass on a Three Movie DVD at a one Movie price.
I like these movies, I do.
Some say that 'Pink Cadillac' is one of his poorest efforts, yet Bernadette Peters easily
makes up for that. So I really like that movie also.
Overall, a good purchase.

Pink Cadillac is another great old Clint Eastwood movie. There was a lot of action through the whole thing and Bernadette Peters played a great supporting roll. I would recommend this movie to anyone.

Clint's bounty hunter is obviously a parody character based on his other roles. The movie was interesting and a little bizarre, but I think he was having fun with the production, and with the audience. While Peters is not generally leading lady material there is something appealing and vulnerable about the woman she portrays, and it plays well to Eastwood's sentimental tough guy. If you're looking for humor and action but don't expect a lot of plot depth or original story line it's an entertaining flick.

For a movie made in the mid 80's, you'd think pairing up 2 superstars like Clint Eastwood and Burt Reynolds would make for a smash hit but it just wasn't meant to be. The plot isn't terribly exciting and the acting didn't raise any eyebrows but there was just enough humor and a few goofy situations to keep it from total destruction.

It's the 1930's and the time of prohibition, gangland activity, and all the nefarious activity that goes with it. Eastwood plays the seasoned, grizzled lieutenant in the police department trying to keep a hold on his city while Reynolds is his former partner now turned private eye who just can't seem to stay out of trouble. These two trade wisecracks and insults throughout the film and put themselves into some corny predicaments that merit a few laughs here and there. It seems that they're both trying to outdo each other also so that distracts a little but not too much. They finally team up together to save the day and roust the gangsters in a predictable and unexciting ending.

There's not a whole lot of saving graces other that what has already been mentioned but at least you can see some different, although hollow, acting performances by Madeline Kahn, Rip Torn, Richard Roundtree, Jane Alexander, and Irene Cara. It's not enough to rescue the film but if you go into watching this with the idea that it's just a guilty pleasure and nothing more, you probably won't feel so bad about wasting an hour and a half of your time.
