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.
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.
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.
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.
