An actor's first had review of Keaton's Cop.
26 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was in this movie. I played a cop guarding Abe Vagoda.It was shot in Galveston with a budget at The Galvez Hotel, but there are so many small problems. Lee Majors was playing it straight, but doing scenes with Don Rickles makes it kinda hard. Rickles was a nut on the set. Abe Vagoda was searching for his character. Even the actors were struggling with this script, the holes, the cheese. One of the best bloopers is watching the car chase pass the same convenience store 3 times in a row.

The actor's were trying hard to be serious. But the props, the bomb...??..what the hell!?? They should have went for the comedy..the god father this wasn't.

The film also has a orange tint to it.You see, the film used to shoot the movie was apparently old and developed improperly in spots throughout the film...that's the inside word anyway. Ahh yes, A classic Bob Burge production. This was the kind of movie that ended careers. Once it came out it vanished. It took me 4 years to find ans outta state copy for 75 bucks. That is called burying it. Now, we can watch and laugh...why not. All I know is I got to hang out 2 days with Lee Majors and Abe Vagoda, for that I AM thankful.
