Storyline

Paul Fein (Charles Bronson) is a veteran police commander of the Milwaukee Police Department whose eldest son Ben (Daniel Baldwin) is a senior police detective, his older daughter Kate (Barbara Williams) is a public defender who takes her job very seriously, and his youngest son Eddie (Sebastian Spence) is a uniformed cop assigned to the department's Patrol Bureau. Paul is assigned to investigate the murder of a prominent businessman, and he soon learns that the field of suspects has been narrowed down to the victim's sexually freewheeling wife Anna (Lesley-Anne Down) and Paul's wild-child, youngest daughter Jackie (Angela Featherstone). Neither Paul, Ben, nor Eddie believe that Jackie could have committed the murder, and soon Paul is using himself as a decoy in a bid to find out more about what Anna does and doesn't know about her husband's death.

Quotes

Eddie Fein: Hey, who do you think you are hanging out in the bathroom? The Fonzie? Dad, do you really think Mrs. Novacek hired Martin to kill her husband?
Paul Fein: I don't know. Lenny said she did, but her first words in life were probably a lie. Look, we'll find out who killed Novacek. I'm no worried about that.
Eddie Fein: I know. I know, dad, I know what's eating you. It's Ben and Jackie.
Paul Fein: And you. Why the hell did you have to become a cop?
Eddie Fein: Have you been talking to Celia? You never said anything before about...
Paul Fein: -I'm saying it now...

A little better than the usual TV copy movie.
16 July 2000 | by dermetzSee all my reviews

The cast makes this better than average MFTV movie. Bronson is his usual self although he talks more here than in a lot of films. Dan Baldwin gives a performance that is equal to his Homicide role. The support members of the "family" are average except Featherstone who does a great job. Not a movie to put on your must list but a good one to watch if in the middle of rerun season or, like myself, have 4 VCRs going most of the time.
