Enjoyable
17 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There's something comfortable about these Rockford movies - they keep the spirit of the old Rockford Files series and make for fun watching. "Murders and Misdemeanors" aka Shootout at the Golden Pagoda lines up the usual suspects - Rockford, Angel, and Dennis - for a case involving the possible misbehavior of two cops. Jim, believing his friend Booker (John Amos) to be a dying man, takes his case load, not realizing that one of them involves the police. It makes him persona non grata at the department and a definite target for tickets. Meanwhile, Angel is shopping a film of Jim's life, giving out Jim's phone number and a restaurant phone number and asking to speak to people like Scorcese and Mel Gibson, telling Sly Stallone's people it's the kind of action film Sly will love.

It's all highly entertaining. The Rockford Files is one of my favorite all-time series; these TV movies capture the series' wit and energy and remind us that time, indeed, marches on.
