Approaching his older brother Brad (Bruce Boxleitner) for a loan, George received a job proposal instead: join Brad's well-regarded Patrol Special team. Not real keen on the idea, George nonetheless becomes the new owner of the business when Brad is heartlessly gunned down in the line of duty.
Soon George finds himself battling a crime spree in his district with a surly police partner (Tony Goldwyn). Out to avenge his brother, George closes in on a crooked art dealer who is trying to wrestle the district away from him.

Christian Slater's wacky character comes to San Francisco to live with his older brother and ends up taking over his security business. He has a variety of misadventures while trying to learn how to protect the people on his beat and catch the bad guy at the same time. And what a terrific, crazed bad guy. He wears outrageous shirts, including T-shirts with his own picture on them. And he's just one of the many unusual people you'll meet here. From the minute that frozen turkey goes bouncing down the street at the beginning, you'll be hooked.
Filmed on location, Kuffs is full of San Francisco atmosphere and local color which make it even more appealing for those of us who like the city. I own this movie in VHS and have watched it over and over. Now I'll buy it in DVD.
This film has one of my all time favorite lines: "Where DO you buy your clothes?" An appealing winner!
It's PG-13 For Lauguage , Action Violence.
The soundtrack is also, just perfect for the film's different moods; 'I don't wanna live without you' may be the most moving song I've heard on a film. My only complaint is that it's not out on DVD!
Plot in a sentence or two: lazy 20-year old high-school drop-out George Kuffs inherits "citizen's patrol" service when his older brother (a cop) is killed. Given the chance to fill in his brother's shoes and avenge his death, Kuffs won't let it slip away. In process, he "learns" responsibility, courage and respect and discovers he's a better man than he though he is.
Constant humour, hillarious one-liners, fast pace and action, excellent casting and above all, Christian's presence and talking to camera (very few films have done that succesfully) all add class to this overlooked gem.
Of course, if you want "reality" go watch "NYPD Blue" or "Cops" and don't bother with this.
Favourite line: "I always wanted a gun."
Why this movie is still not on DVD is beyond me... Until it is, go and buy "Pump Up The Volume".
