From The Days of the Miners and Forty Niners
If the rather quirky and unique screen personality of Christian Slater is not your cup of tea, than I'd stay away from Kuffs. Reading the film credits before writing this review I learned that Kuffs was written specifically for Slater. I can't see anyone else this role of George Kuffs, amiable high school dropout who can't get his life together and is sponging off his big brother Bruce Boxleitner.
Boxleitner is a patrol specialist, an institution dating from the days of the Forty Niners and unique unto San Francisco. There were not enough police to enforce any semblance of law and order in a town that just mushroomed over night. The city fathers assigned specific areas to people to enforce law and order and Boxleitner has one of those districts.
But in his area, the merchants are being harassed and extorted and he's being offered a huge bribe to sell his district to some really nasty people. When he doesn't Boxleitner is killed and Christian Slater inherits his job.
Despite some really gaping holes in the plot, the film is really carried along quite nicely by Christian Slater. Others in the cast of note are Milla Jovavich as his pregnant girlfriend, Leon Rippy as the hood who murdered Boxleitner and Tony Goldwyn as the SFPD officer assigned to Slater to keep him from getting killed.
Still Kuffs is strictly a Christian Slater show and his fans will absolutely love it.
