Great Movie!
14 December 1999 | by Jen549See all my reviews

I give this movie a rating of 9, losing a point only because the accent Sharon Gless has in it is annoying. I saw the movie on late night TV and hope they show it again soon. It is a funny movie, made even funnier in my opinion because 3 of the 4 people on the run are better known for their roles as cops on other tv shows. It's fun to see them in opposite roles from what I'm used to seeing.
