[Closing scene, at the hospital]
I know you were looking forward to being partners, and so was I really. Riva recruited Harry and I to be secret agents with the Israeli government. You know, the Mossad.
Naturally, I have to convert to Judaism. I'm gonna be bar mitzvahed tomorrow. We leave for Tel Aviv the next day to train at a secret site in the Sinai Desert.

Terrible film that puts old detective (Gene Hackman) with a crazed detective (Dan Aykroyd) to solve a complicated case. The odd partnership is made stranger due to the fact that Aykroyd has a type of split-personality disorder which causes him to imitate television show characters at seemingly all times. A really poor movie that wastes the immense talents of Hackman. A really rotten goose egg. 2 stars out of 5.
