Sometimes, everyone is wrong.
That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it, when it comes to this hybrid between a police procedural and an off-kilter rom-com.
Critics and ticket buyers hated it in 1989, but I’m calling from 2021 to say I enjoyed it quite a bit.
Kevin Kline is just right to play an espresso-loving disgraced cop, brought back to catch a serial strangler, while the supporting cast goes extremely-deep.
Best is sardonic artist Alan Rickman, arching his eyebrows to the heavens, and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, as dewy and delightful as they come.
A perfect film? Hardly.
An entertaining one? Absolutely.
