Chicago cop Burt Reynolds is suspended after a sting operation goes terribly wrong; he turns in his badge but finds work playing bodyguard to hooker Liza Minnelli, who was a witness to the massacre that got Reynolds in hot water. Burt seems to be suffering from Chronic Fatigue--he's barely present--however vivacious Liza (too old really to be playing prostitutes) does manage to greatly elevate this crime-drama, although the solid technical aspects, fine supporting cast and gritty locales are also quite good. While combining corny comedic asides, a very odd villain, and jarring bursts of violence, "Rent-a-Cop" is pretty much a mess, and professional critics snubbed it, yet it is entertaining enough and the two stars share some great chemistry (even with Burt so sleepy). **1/2 from ****
