I have long been a fan of this movie. It was shamefully overlooked as just another buddy/road movie at the time, but the performances of all involved are truly fantastic. De Niro works in bailer bonds (I know, American stuff - but not complicated) basically he chases those nasty old criminals who have skipped bail. He is an ex-cop who is fed up and wants out. He is soon granted the opportunity in the form of a $100,000 contract to catch a seemingly harmless accountant who ripped off some Mob guys and, fearing for his life, has disappeared. The pursuit that follows is hilarious, action packed and Charles Grodin is exceptional as the quiet but still annoyingly-in-your face accountant. I aint gonna tell you anymore other than get it...it is a whole lot of fun (and the soundtrack is great too).
