Storyline

Just a normal night at the police station for rookie Christine Paley (Lea Thompson). This is a log of about eight different types of arrests which can happen in a normal month. Lt. Mike Brosloe (Robert Loggia) leads her through a most unusual first shift. If all shifts were like this, even a veteran could only last a short time. Written by Richard Jones <rjo339@swbell.net>

Great Acting
16 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Had no idea just what this film was going to present and became quite surprised by the great acting and fantastic character study of people of all races and problems who entered a police station and were booked. Lea Thompson,(Christine Paley),"The Unknown Cyclist",'98 played a young rookie on the police force, who obtained the highest grades in the Police Academy, however, she needed to learn about human nature and how to approach people with a sort of kind understanding. Robert Loggia, (Lt. Mike Brosloe),"The Deal",'05 was the boss of the police station and took Annie under his wing and tried to teach her some of 101 Police Work. There was a nice appearance by Carl Reiner,(Norman Friedler),"Oceans's Twelve",'04, who was involved with a mercy killing of his wife. There is also a cross dresser who looks pretty good in woman's cloths depending on how you feel about such matters, as the police had to deal with this person. The actors all did an outstanding performance with their great skills, however, I thought Lea Thompson showed her great acting talents in this film. Enjoy
