The movie got Razzie nominated for two Worst Acting awards, for both Worst Actor - Burt Reynolds (for this film and Switching Channels (1988)) as well as Worst Actress - Liza Minnelli (for her work in both this movie and Arthur (1981)). Reynolds lost but Minelli won the Worst Actress Golden Raspberry Award for the 9th edition of the Razzies. See more »
Didja know that, contrary to popular belief (and the Razzies), Liza-with-a-Z actually received rave reviews from Variety and the NEW YORK TIMES (!) for her performance in this otherwise utterly ordinary cop thriller. She's actually very funny in it, and Reynolds has his moments as well. There is an absolutely hysterical scene near the beginning with Burt as a security guard disguised as Santa in a department store, bantering with his new boss, an overly officious matron yammering about his failure to scrutinize his "policy manual."
