These Rockford films are love letters to the series' many faithful viewers, and as such, there's many little nods to the series. This one starts it off in the very first scene. After the cable guy finishes installing Jim's cable, he says; 'call us, and will be here faster than you can say Geronimo...', which is a reference to the last episode of the series' first year; The Rockford Files: Roundabout (1975). When Jim wants the agents to rush in - atop Hoover Dam - and save him, he's supposed to yell, 'Geronimo'. Even though he repeatedly says it, in ever-more ridiculous ways, he's left hanging (BTW; they DO finally show up). See more »
An excellent story that perfectly recaptured classic Rockford Files.
This movie was the most enjoyable Rockford Files By FAR. It beautifully featured the friendship between Angel and Jim.
This is a classic Angel Martin story that really explorers the depths of his scaming in a very humorous way. If you love the friction that so often played between Jim and Angel then this will be one Rockford Files story you cant beat. ENJOY.
