Brash NYC policeman Officer Gunther Toody is partnered with stiff, by-the-book Officer Francis Muldoon to protect an important mafia witness prior to testifying against orgainzed crime in Brooklyn, all the while dealing with their personal lives, overbearing spouses, common criminals, arms dealers, and their officious boss Captain Anderson.

One of the worst, if not THE worst, big screen incarnations of a classic 60s TV show ever! This neutron bomb of a movie should have been a direct-to-video release, like the third and mercifully last "Honey, I Shrunk The Kids" fiasco, but no: the producers gamely went ahead and released - the cynic would say that films like this aren't released, they escape - this horror theatrically, apparently hoping that moviegoers would ignore the pre-release buzz and flock to the theater. They didn't. In fact, the only thing that moviegoers did do was to avoid this film as if not only their lives but the lives of their children as well hung in the balance. This misbegotten twelve ton turkey has none of the originality or comic timing that highlighted the TV series. What it does have, besides Nipsy Russell, who spends most of the film looking like he's ready to ask the producers if he can buy his way out of the script, and formaldehyde-soaked Al Lewis, are lame jokes, forced accents, crummy acting, and Rosie O'Donnell, who's even more irritating and grating here than she was on television. Guess she didn't learn from that other brilliant career move "The Flintstones". It's almost as if the producers set out to make a lousy movie; in this they entirely succeeded. The film is virtually unwatchable, and to those of us who fondly remember the TV show, a crushing disappointment. Avoid this loser at all costs.
