Synopsis: An arsonist is on the loose and two fire-fighting brothers must put differences aside and work together to try and catch him.
Fact: Don Rimgale is actually a real fire investigator who has a cameo in the movie.
Trivia: Most of the soundtrack was used in the 1993 version of "Iron Chef".
Movie Mistake: Tim is wearing his mask when checking rooms with Steve. When they walk down the corridor the mask is no longer on nor visible.
My Take: Not Ron Howard's best film by a long-shot, but the "Let me go Bull."-"You go. We go." is one of the best quotable scenes ever. Sometimes it's all about the quotes!
