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
When Daniel is making phone calls to locate his friend, the phone number that he leaves on the answering machine is 555-2368. That phone number is the same as the one used in Ghostbusters (1984) in their television commercials. This phone number was also the phone number used in When a Stranger Calls (1979); Carol Kane's character Jill Johnson gives Police Sergeant Saggert a phone number of where she is babysitting. The above number: 555-2368 was the number she gave to the Sergeant, when she was speaking to him on the phone. See more »

I am NOT lying. My dentist said he's never seen so many cavities in one mouth and that he's sending a sample of my saliva to the University of Wisconsin!

Such a beautiful film. I don't care if it isn't the most highbrow film ever written - how many people truly are bothered by such details other than academics and snobs? I remember watching this years ago and it is one of the very few films that I love to watch again and again, despite knowing the ending!! It is a wonderful, compelling story of true love, a true gentleman and genuine friendship that crosses the ages. Mel Gibson's character, Daniel, is sensitively portrayed and the ending is incredibly moving. Gibson ably handles all the shifts in emotion and even time. It is a novel way of retelling the 'true love never ends' story and it heart-warming and moving. A young Elijah Wood is entertaining and sweet without being unbearable. Jamie Lee Curtis is totally believable as a young single mother.Highly recommended and very endearing.
