When a multimillionaire man's son is kidnapped, he cooperates with the police at first but then turns the tables on the kidnappers when he uses the ransom money as a reward for the capture of the kidnappers.
With personal crises and age weighing in on them, LAPD officers Riggs and Murtaugh must contend with deadly Chinese triads that are trying to free their former leaders out of prison and onto American soil.
A 1939 test pilot asks his best friend to use him as a guinea pig for a cryogenics experiment. Daniel McCormick wants to be frozen for a year so that he doesn't have to watch his love lying in a coma. The next thing Daniel knows is that he's been awoken in 1992.Written by
A couple of the extras used in the background of Daniel being interviewed by the officer can be seen through the windows were actually creating quite the stir behind the scenes. Many of their antics were suggested that they be used in a Mel Brooks film instead of this one. See more »
Someone knew Daniel was around somewhere. When an aging Daniel shows up at Harry's daughter's house she recognizes his name. As she never had seen him her only knowledge of him had to come from her mother, Harry's wife or Helen who knew Harry's wife and is pictured with Harry's daughter at age 2. When Helen came out of her coma she would have wondered where Daniel was. Even if they didn't know precisely that Daniel had gone cryogenic on them you would figure a vast search would have been conducted with Helen as a driving force his fiancee and childhood friend. As Daniel said she knew about the project and would have had the base thoroughly searched for Daniel. See more »

I first saw this movie when I was ten years old and have been in love with mel gibson ever since. His performance (big shock) always gets to me. I don't mean to make this a love song to mel, but he has on screen chemistry with everybody, so it's romantic to see him with Jamie Lee curtis and Isabel glasser. Elijah wood is good as one of the less annoying child stars from his era. The story is cute, no oscar winner, but entertaining. A traditional love story in an untraditional plot, Will love wait for me? When do you move on? It's never too late, those kind of things. Again, I saw it when I was a kid and loved it, and now I'm an adult and still enjoy it.
