Suspend reality! Fun! Fun! Fun!
10 August 1999 | by (Pine Bluff, Arkansas) – See all my reviews

The Real McCoy has one of the most impossible storylines around. But how can you not love a movie which contains the line, "What's not normal about getting on a plane with your mom and going down to Rio with 3 million dollars?" Some parts, especially the set-up, are slow, but on the whole it's a great, implausible romp. It's also a must for Kilmer and Basinger fans.
