Not a bad little movie.
22 September 2001 | by (Venice, FL) – See all my reviews

This was a typical formula movie. Cop with an attitude, always at odds with the bosses, women trouble, they seem to fall into bed at a moments notice. Trouble with IAD. Trouble with his partner, trouble with old childhood chums, everywhere you look trouble. But I still found it entertaining, it's worth a look. I like Pare anyhow.
