By Scott Goldfine

Anthony Edwards is a green newcomer who becomes the partner of a streetwise cop (Forest Whitaker) in this buddy action-comedy. With actor-turned-director Richard Benjamin at the helm, this film is rife with stereotypes, clichés and contains nary an original idea.

However, the capable tandem of Edwards and Whitaker yield some redeemable moments. Also stars Penelope Ann Miller and Joe Pantoliano. Rated R.

GRADE: C+
