Rent-a-Cop

THERE’S A KILLER ON THE LOOSE AND THE LADY IS THE TARGET.¬†

Ex-cop Tony Church (Burt Reynolds) reluctantly agrees to protect a hooker (Liza Minnelli) who saw a man kill several people in a hotel; now, she’s in danger… Two of the biggest stars of the 1970s were hired for a very 1980s type of action comedy, and they don’t seem terribly comfortable. Burt is listless and Liza just annoying as the vivacious working girl. Pretty violent, but unlike Beverly Hills Cop (1984) completely lacking in charm. ‚ÄĚIcing‚ÄĚ on the cake: A horribly orchestrated music score.¬†

1988-U.S. 96 min. Color. Directed by Jerry London. Music: Jerry Goldsmith. Cast: Burt Reynolds (Tony Church), Liza Minnelli (Della Roberts), James Remar (Dancer), Richard Masur, Dionne Warwick, Bernie Casey.

Razzie: Worst Actress (Minnelli).
