Storyline

Henry Adler lives in Ontario by himself, regularly visits his gruff and critical father, and works in a bank; he's also an actor. He finds new purpose in life when he's cast as a cop in a realistic TV show. He gets into the part, borrowing the uniform from wardrobe, and walking around the city streets. Soon he's talking to bank customers as if he's a cop; this gets him in trouble with his boss, but Henry doesn't care. He falls for one of the actresses, Charlie, and they practice together. Henry's quirks and his intensity creep her out, though, and she breaks off all contact. He's desolate. Things come to a head when one of LA's finest mistakes Henry for a real cop.

I Lust after This Man in Uniform
26 October 2002 | by helfeleatherSee all my reviews

Henry Adler prefers wearing his cop uniform to his street clothes, and who can blame him? They transform him from a weedy nuisance into a sexy tough guy. Problem is, he starts enjoying the tough guy role a little too much.

Excellent acting, and an intriguing story.
