Storyline

Jimmy Lynch is angry because his older brother, who was injured as a result of an off duty fire rescue, is denied benefits by the city. At the same time, Mayor Tyler is embroiled in a political scandal that he denies all previous knowledge of. Jimmy begins painting "Tyler Knew, Turk 182" as an embarrassment to the mayor. The mayor is furious at this grafitti appearing all over the city and orders the police to find the artist. Jimmy's "Turk 182" spraypaints continue to appear.

Very enjoyable
30 June 2002 | by (Woking, England) – See all my reviews

As far as films of the 80s go, this is very much of its time, with the acting -- featuring an INCREDIBLY young looking Timothy Hutton! -- the script, the setting, the direction and even the music.

However, this is a very enjoyable "cute" movie about a the brother [Hutton] of a firefighter [Urich] who was injured at a fire and saved a little girl after having a couple of drinks.

Refused compensation, the brother sets off to ruin the election campaign of the mayor of New York with a series of sensational graffiti stunts.

The love interest is predictable, but this is still a fun film without getting serious -- it knows its place.
