Douglas Pratt

Minnelli's portrayal of a hooker is poorly written and difficult to accept, but everything else in the plot flows comfortably.

Frank Ochieng

Another faceless Reynolds crime caper that handcuffs the audience's appreciation for real arresting comedy. As defective as a broken police siren

Clint Morris

Rent-A-Cop tried to recapture the magic that Reynolds and Minnelli shared in Lucky Lady (1975), but instead succumb to being one of the cheesiest action flicks of all time

This cop thriller starring Burt Reynolds and Liza Minnelli sucks! Minnelli was too old for the role as a prostitute.
