When Fred Frenger gets out of prison, he decides to start over in Miami, Florida, where he starts a violent one-man crime wave. He soon meets up with amiable college student/prostitute Susie Waggoner. Opposing Frenger is Sgt Hoke Moseley, a cop who is getting a bit old for the job, especially since the job of cop in 1980's Miami is getting crazier all the time. Written by
When they have to buzz you in through a locked coin shop door, they also have to buzz you out. But Frenger just goes through the door after shooting Pedro and the coin shop owner. No one buzzes him out, and the door would be locked. See more »
...And you save your money... and buy a nice little house, with a white picket fence, and live happily ever after.

and entertaining movie, though, in NO WAY do I consider this a comedy.
Excellent performances by Baldwin and Ward, but especially Jennifer Jason Leigh. If this had been recognized as a regular 'REAL' motion picture, she might have been nominated for an Oscar. Absolutely one of her best performances.
Kudos all around.
But this ain't no comedy.
And, on a side note, I believe Shirley Stoler was at one time an actress known as Shirley Kirkpatrick.
