Goofs

This first time Murphy (Burt Reynolds) visits his apartment, he switches on his 1930s era radio, which instantly begins playing music, as a modern one would. This is incorrect - a radio of that era contained vacuum tubes, and it would have taken the radio several minutes to "warm up" before any music could be heard. See more »

Quotes

Lt. Speer: How about a fast game of sleeper?
Poolroom thug: Never heard of it.
Lt. Speer: Well, it's simple. You go ahead and make your shot and I put you to sleep.
[cracks Poolroom thug in the head from behind with pool cue, knocking him unconscious]

Dirty Harry meets Cop and a Half
4 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

I didn't find this movie all that bad. It is merely mediocre. Unfortunately there is nothing in this movie that we haven't seen dozens of times before. Burt is sophomoric and Clint is stereotypical Clint. Good TV movie but not really worth renting unless you have seen everything else.
