This is an interesting psychological journey of One Good Cop (Michael Keaton) who makes a decision to do something wrong. One thought stands out in the movie, and will probably stay with me for a long time: People make millions in drug money while law abiding, honest people can barely afford to keep a roof over their heads. That truth is relevant.
Keaton was excellent in showing the honesty of a cop who loses his partner of eight years. It is easy to see how deep the bond of friendship is between shield carrying brothers or sisters. They can't really share their day at home with family and loved ones because it would drag their family through the underworld garbage as well. That barrier, however, is hard on a marriage, but remains in place because cops do want to protect the good guys.
Keaton is given the guardianship of his partner's children. Rene Russo is beautiful in her role as Keaton's wife; always wanting children, but unable to bear them. Suddenly life gives her a family -- and these children need two loving guardians to have a healthy survival of the loss of both of their parents. They do not need to be separated into three foster homes or adopted by different families.
However, there is simply not enough money to take care of them. Neither Keaton nor Russo want to lose these three little girls who brought a new kind of love and laughter into their tiny home. And tiny it is -- one bedroom, where the girls now sleep together, a living room, kitchen, and bathroom. The significance of the lodgings is the impetus for the crime.
The question arises: is stealing from criminals, in order to take care of the children they turned into orphans, sactioned?
Benjamin Bratt is filled with his usual bravado, and he is also a good cop.

This kind of a movie is a rare guest on screens nowdays. Police movies are not very popular now and that's a pity. "One Good Cop" has a solid plot with all the genre's attributes. Besides it's a touching and kind-hearted story about a cop who has to raise the three daughters of his partner who's been killed doing his job.

Michael Keaton's work is just something special here. He's always good but in this film I guess he demonstrated all his abilities. I can note practically everyone who's been involved in this movie - Rene Russo, Anthony LaPaglia, Rachel Ticotin, Tony Plana (brilliant as a villain) and young Benjamin Bratt who is very interesting to look at here.

"One Good Cop" is not just an action movie, it's an insight into human relationship, into relationship between friends, husband and wife, grown ups and kids.

Great film that can be recommended to anyone who just loves good quality cinema. You won't be disappointed. Everytime I watch it I get a little nostalgic because this movie is of an extincting kind.

Michael Keaton has been in some good movies and this is one of them. One Good Cop is more of an action drama than a "shoot em/kill em" type movie. It has a good story and you care about what happens to the characters. If you are a Michael Keaton fan or just like entertaining cop stories then this movie is one to see.

This movie was made in 1991. It's basically a good movie but it did seem the scenes were sort of hurried. Sort of like the director is saying "hurry up, we're over budget". Well anyway Michael Keaton and Rene Russo do good jobs acting. Keaton plays a NYC detective that has his partner killed and takes the dead cops three girls. I like this type of movie because it's a good family movie, although it is rated R. The reason it's rated R is extreme violence, which I watched and well, it is extreme. One other thing I will add concerns Rene Russo. She, in my opinion is probably one of the classiest actresses of our time.

This is one of those feel good movies that will stand the test of time. So, many movies today have the same plot with no real ending of a positive meaning. Well, hear is one that well makes you sleep better at night and if only for a moment, make you smile ! ENJOY

Keaton is outstanding as a cocky, honest cop, that gets handed a tough situation, and battles as best he can to make it right.
One of the best/real fight scenes you will see.
I watch it regularly.
You will not be disappointed.

It was a great move, and we love Michael Keaton. There was a lot of suspense, and it kept you on the edge of your seat.
The story line was good, and it had a great ending!

I liked this movie, for one reason I like the old movies to a degree. At least this movie tells a story and does not keep you guessing as to what is happening.
