Promising pilot
17 February 2001 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

"Pointman" tells the story of Connie Harper, Wall Street yuppie, who is framed by fellow yuppies and sent to prison. In prison he learns all the tricks needed for survival in the streets.

This is an enjoyable and funny TV movie with the star of many 80s TV shows Jack Scalia. Although the story is thin and the basic idea pretty bad, Scalia does a good job as the main character with a great deal of self-irony. You'll like this one if you're in the right mood.

"Pointman" was followed by a lame TV show with the same title and Scalia as Harper. I don't recommend it.
