Trivia

Filmed as a "backdoor pilot" for a potential television series that was never produced. Cynthia Rothrock claimed this was because the movie was made at a time when American television networks were very sensitive about the amount of violence they would broadcast. Reportedly, director Kevin Hooks would receive frequent memos from the studio advising him not to film specific acts of violence, like kicks to the head. See more »

Not Irresistable At All
25 September 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

Is there some type of discrimination going on at U.S police departments ? Just curious because everytime I see a cop drama from America ( Especially one made as a TVM ) it seems no one can become a detective unless they are a family man with just a few months left in the job , and all police chiefs must be black , while all recruits to the plains clothes division must be females who have a black belt in some martial art

Oh and guess what IRRESISTABLE FORCE is about ? That`s right it`s a TVM with a family man who works as a detective with only a few months left in the job , and his chief is black and he`s assingned a new female partner who`s got a black belt in karate . What else can I tell you ? I can`t remember and I only watched it last night . That probably tells you a lot in that case
