Pandemonium and hilarity break loose when two rogue New York City cops decide to jump fence and join the ranks of crooks. This sharp-edged satire is a funny, exciting and exceptionally intelligent caper movie loaded with enough twists to keep you guessing to its thrilling end! Disillusioned with life on the force. Cliff Gorman (The Boys in the Band) and Joseph Bologna (My Favorite Year) star as two of New York's finest decide to put their badges to use... to get into a Wall Street brokerage so they can leave with $10 million in untraceable bonds! But the plan goes awry when their deal to cash in the bonds with a local Mafioso goes sour. Now wanted on both sides of the law, the bumbling cops find themselves in a race to get out of Manhattan with their loot... and their lives! Stellar direction by Aram Avakian (End of the Road) and featuring a hilarious screenplay by Donald E. Westlake (Bank Shot) and based on his own novel.
