Storyline

Jack Bowman is a cop from New Orleans who doesn't exactly play by the rules. When he is sent to California on a brief assignment, he is wrongfully blamed for something he didn't do. To get out of the jam he's in, he recruits cops who are on psychiatric leave, Bullet Tingreedes, a female cop who's addicted to danger, Stanley Jones, a cop who walks around with a ventriloquist dummy and who has a short fuse when people make fun of his stature, and Toby Baker, a kleptomaniac. After sorting things out, the Chief of Police decides to form a unit with Bowman and them. And a psychiatrist, Priscilla Mather keeps an eye on them. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

One of the BEST movies I've ever seen!!!
19 May 2000 | by (Motor City) – See all my reviews

Even though this was a pilot for a TV series that only had 8 episodes I just love this movie. Miguel Ferrer has to be one of my favorite actors and the way he pulls off the whole Cajun attitude is just wonderful. The plot is great, police rejects forced to work together to save an innocent, and it has a humorous side as well.
