Storyline

Heart problems force Boston cop Pally LaMarr to retire; he's in a funk and his wife Charlotte sends him packing. At Charlotte's insistence, Pally's half-brother Ray pays Pally a visit and suggests he buy a race horse to cheer up. Ray's always playing the angles, and he's got his eye on a horse that's cheap because it's been misdiagnosed. Ray knows the horse is a champion. Before they can win some money, a local mob boss, Frank Finnigan, sees the horse and steals it as payment for the gambling debt of Tony, a local jockey and single parent. Can Pally and Ray get the horse back, get Tony out of hock, and win some moola? What about Charlotte: can Pally let his heart take the lead? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Nicely predictable
23 July 2002 | by (Marietta, GA) – See all my reviews

Sutherland & La Paglia do their jobs his well, as do the supporting cast. There are a few twists to an otherwise predictable tale. Besides, any film with Lothaire Bluteau as a mobster is fun to watch. It was definitely worth the rental. I gave it 5 out of 10.
