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!
There's an early title card in the movie that reads: "In 1851, San Francisco could not afford enough policemen to protect its population. So the city was divided into districts which were sold to private citizens. Merchants who wanted to, paid these men for police protection. Today, the men and women who own these districts are called PATROL SPECIALS."
This is a real thing, a legit thing, what San Francisco wrought. There really were neighborhood police forces authorized in Frisco's city charter comprised of law-enforcing civilians, these unsworn officers who were assigned to or had purchased a specific district and who charge their clientele hourly rates for their services. I guess you could say it's sort of a legal protection racket.
It's a star vehicle for Slater, and he's effortless here.Read more ›
He doesn't even know he is getting this yet as it is to be delivered tomorrow. I only wish I could have gotten it gift wrapped. But he isn't the sentimental kind, so I don't think he will mind.
It's PG-13 For Lauguage , Action Violence.
