Reviews
Mine: Very funny road/buddy picture. Great performaces. Very witty.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Socko action-comedy with bounty hunter (and ex-cop) De Niro determined to bring bail-jumper Grodin, an embezzling accountant, from N. Y. to L. A. What De Niro doesn't know is that the Mob is also on Grodin's trail--with orders to kill. Sensational byplay between the stars is matched by first-rate action and a sharply written script by George Gallo. Director Brest handles the blend of violence and comedy as well as he did in BEVERLY HILLS COP. Dynamic music score by Danny Elfman. Followed by a TV series.

An absolute classic. This film has never received the accolades it deserved. It has everything, especially comedy. De Niro's delivery of his lines is perfection and the added swearing adds weight to the whole thing. Great acting, great score, great script and guess what, not a speacial effect in sight. More movies like this please.
