The football game that Hickey & Boggs attend is the September 26, 1971, meeting between the Los Angeles Rams and the Atlanta Falcons, held at the Los Angeles Coliseum. That game ended in a 20-20 tie (in those days before sudden-death overtime was introduced by the NFL, to break most ties). The baseball game that the pair subsequently attend actually took place several weeks before the football game - on August 18, 1971 - at Dodger Stadium, at Chavez Ravine, in Los Angeles. The Mets beat the Dodgers, 3-2, that Wednesday evening. See more »
(at around 1 min) In the office scene where Boggs keeps drinking, he sets the bottle on the file cabinet with the label facing away and half full, then when he goes to pick it up again the label is facing forwards and the bottle is three/quarter full. See more »

Al... You ever kill anybody? In the united states? Because I know you mean it any everything, but I know these guys better than I know you. They're soldiers, that's all. No questions, no time to ask, no talk. Cops are worse, and less predictable. When you pull a gun, you've gotta be ready to kill somebody, and I'm telling you it's better to run.

The guys from I, Spy are back and "it" hits the fan. Hickey and Boggs are two long in the tooth private investigators on their last legs, physically and financially. They get a case that seems like a good deal to make a few bucks. Then they uncover some things that the really, really bad guys do not want uncovered. The more the bad guys try to get them off the case the harder they press. Then one of their families is murdered as a warning and they go methodically ballistic. Now they are looking not for information but for some people to kill. Also featured is Bill Hickman, one of Hollywood's most sought after stunt drivers and the driver of the black Charger in "Bullitt." You never saw Bill Cosby portray a quiet family man turned into a methodical, cold blooded killer. Don't miss a chance to see it.
