Synopsis: A hard-ass cop and a temporarily paroled felon are forced to team up and catch a killer within 48 hours.
Fact: Mickey Rourke, Jeff Bridges, Kris Kristofferson and Clint Eastwood all turned down the role of Jack Cates.
Trivia: The word 'fuck' is used 48 times.
Movie Mistake: Gantz fires a six shooter eight times without reloading.
My Take: This was one of the better 'buddy cop' movies to come out of the 80's. For me, it all just came down to Eddie Murphy, this was his first film, and the beginning of some really funny movies.
