Burt Reynolds and Liza Minnelli team up in the action-romance “Rent-A-Cop.” The film is your basic cop-gets-kicked-off-the-force-but-remains-on-the-case yarn. Minnelli turns in a perky performance as the hooker Reynolds falls for, but Burt has seen better days.

Hollywood’s favorite psycho James Remar is an effectively menacing villain ― but “Rent-A-Cop” is primarily for Burt & Liza fans only. Also stars Dionne Warwick, Bernie Casey and Robby Benson. Rated R.
