Trivia

Before Gus takes Kathy underground, he yells to Sean, "I'm gonna fuck her!" and repeats it two more times, but the MPAA strongly advised the makers of the movie to dub out the word "fuck" at that scene because they felt that it was wrong for an adult male to say that he was going to have sex with an underage girl. Instead, Cliff Gorman's quote was fixed for him to say, "I'm gonna keep her." See more »

The dirtiest, trashiest movie ever from a major studio!
29 October 1998 | by (Suffolk, VA. (U.S.A.)) – See all my reviews

Columbia went far over the top with NIGHT OF THE JUGGLER! This has got to be the biggest raunchiest production ever released by them! Late-night junkies who saw this on TBS, listen hard! Go out and find the REAL uncut video release starring James Brolin. You'll see what I mean because all the explicitness of its violent subject matter were heavily cut on TV, making it mediocre by comparison. Brolin is an ex-cop searching for his kidnapped daughter (and some answers!), but he faces both urban gangs and the cops at the same time. This may have been his most ambitious role yet as an actor, as he roughs up almost anybody he encounters! Plenty of mean, dirty, and exciting action keeps boredom away. Its urbanized setting and mystery elements make up for a too simple plot. Surprisingly, it's worth a look....if you can find it!
