An excellent story that perfectly recaptured classic Rockford Files.
11 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie was the most enjoyable Rockford Files By FAR. It beautifully featured the friendship between Angel and Jim.

This is a classic Angel Martin story that really explorers the depths of his scaming in a very humorous way. If you love the friction that so often played between Jim and Angel then this will be one Rockford Files story you cant beat. ENJOY.
