Joe Don Baker is Mitchell, a principled, hard-nosed, big-bellied cop with an affinity for porn and Schlitz. His latest assignment: taking down a crime boss, drug smugglers and a corrupt businessman while also keeping his own high class prostitute girlfriend in line. This obscure action crime drama became legendarily infamous after the cult comedy show Mystery Science Theater 3000 (1988) featured it and extensively riffed on it on one of its most popular episodes.

Several scenes were purposely shot twice to provide an alternate version of the scene for television broadcast. The scene where an angry Greta writes on Mitchell's windshield has 2 versions. The word, "bastard" replaced by "jerk", and in the dinner scene, "goddamn awful butler" is replaced by "lousy butler". See more

The most often seen version of this movie is the version as featured on _"Mystery Science Theater 3000 (1988)"_ in 1993. This version was derived from a 1980s Lorimar TV print, which was then edited further by the MST3k producers (so they could wrap the host segments of the show around it). Because of this, several fairly important plot details in the original film are lost (making it seem more confusing than it actually is). See more
