Ex-football star steals the show in this entertaining 80s actioner.
3 December 1998 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

At first, THE WILD PAIR was going to be another in a series of plain vanilla 80s action movies with a top billed cast of popular actors. This one had a little more than I once thought realized. Bubba "Hightower" Smith is still the powerfully brawny, yet funny character that best described him. He's too strong to be cast in an action film as he beats up and shoves criminals too easily with tremendous power, but he does manage to pull off some interesting humor along the way, and he later becomes vulnerable to violent attacks near the end. Smith's move to an action thriller was a good change of pace from the POLICE ACADEMY series, and he does show potential. The father and son duo of Beau & Lloyd Bridges display opposite sides against each other, but remember that B. Bridges and Smith are cops. There are some satisfying action thrills as well as the comedy. It's fairly close to LETHAL WEAPON in a low-end kind of fashion. Just try it.
