Directed by John Badham. This high-energy action comedy stars Michael J. Fox stars as a spoiled movie star who wants to bring vivid authenticity to his latest role as a big-city cop, so he recruits a hot-headed New York street cop (Oscar-winner James Woods) as his mentor - a magnet for action-packed trouble. A great cast highlights this fantastic action comedy including Christina Ricci, Annabella Sciorra, LL Cool J and Delroy Lindo with director Penny Marshall also appearing. Trivia: LL Cool J's screen debut and his 1990 hit "Momma Said Knock You Out" is heard in the opening club sequence; the climatic sequence on top of the Smoking Gunn II billboard in Times Square took ten days to shoot with New York traffic put to a stand still; supermodel Fabio is briefly seen helping people out of the nightclub at the beginning of the movie.
