Directed by Michael Ritchie
Louis Gossett Jr.
The con is on, and so are the laughs in this two-fisted comedy packed with surprises and rock 'em sock 'em action. James Woods (Cop) and Louis Gossett, Jr. (An Officer and a Gentleman) are a potent one-two punch as a pair of mismatched partners in for the scam of their lives in a movie that's hard to resist. For con artist Gabriel Caine (Woods), Diggstown is the promise land, legendary for its high-stakes boxing matches that attract high-rollers from miles around. Gabe, recognizing a golden opportunity, bets the town's powerful boss (Bruce Dern, Coming Home) that his fighter will defeat ten opponents in 24 hours. It's far from a sure thing, though, since Gabe's Fighter is Honey Roy Palmer (Gossett), a cranky, over-the-hill 48-year-old who has to come out of retirement. Michael Ritchie (The Couch Trip) directed a top-notch cast that includes Oliver Platt (The Ice Harvest), Heather Graham (Boogie Nights) and Randall Texas Cobb (Raising Arizona).
