    Anybody else a fan of this movie? It is underrated, IMO. The chemistry between De Niro and Grodin was fantastic as their dialogue by just sitting and talking made the movie really work.

    One of my favorite scenes in the movie.

    Fantastic movie in its original format,seem to recall a TV version that lost a lot of the bad language,really hurt the movie.

    I love this movie. I randomly caught it on HBO years ago and just loved it ever since.

    Everything worked, every character was just well-casted and memorable in their role even the minor ones: Maurice, Capt. Alonzo, Dennis Farina, and the steak dude from The Matrix as the bail bonds company owner.

    One of my favorite movies, can watch it any time. It's funny, heartfelt, fun, has thrills, and all the actors knock it out of the park. The score is also amazing. Doesn't sound like your typical Danny Elfman score, but man it sticks in your head.


    Martin Brest had a great run with his first three films with Beverly Hills Cop, Midnight Run and Scent of a Woman. Never saw Meet Joe Black, but it seems like a departure, and of course Gigli is despised.

    One of Bob's best for sure. He should've stuck to this type of more subtle comedy instead of the garbage he's appeared in over recent years.
