Movie Reviews

"Liza struts her stuff in this watchable 'action' movie. A police detective is accused of masterminding a chain of killings. Liza is the damsel in distress and Burt Reynolds is the good cop. Funny 80's wardrobe & soundtrack. Watch out for Dionne Warwick as Beth..."
Amusing trifle with a very playful Liza

"I'm glad this is resurfacing. "Rent A Cop" is the movie LizaMinnelli most regrets making (she sez), but she has nothing to atonefor: this is a rollicking, vivacious star turn, by far the best thing in the picture. Burt has his moments but seems fatigued at times, and Dionne Warwick is simply bad (although she looks fab). Robby Benson has a few funny scenes. Jerry Goldsmith's terrific score is out of print ....Many people remember this movie as the one that garned Liza a Worst Actress Razzie award in 1989 (shared with "Arthur 2"), but no one seems to remember that she actually received rave reviews from Variety and the New York Times for this performance. The Razzies like high-profile marks, it seems. Look for Bette Midler and Madonna to duke it out for that award next year (for "Isn't She Great" and "The Next Best Thing", respectively). Haven't seen Madonna's flick, but in Bette's case, the honor(?) would be well deserved.Anyway, if you're a Liza buff and you've never seen "Rent A Cop", give it a whirl. She gets all the best lines, looks great (if a tad heavy) and breathes a lotta life into a formula action flick."
Liza dodging bullets!!!

"When I realized this was an action movie I said to myself "I have to see this" Liza Minelli as Della Roberts dodging bullets and taking a stabbing (not to mention shooting a gun) was something else, WAY different from other roles. I wasn't really happy with Burt Reynolds performance as Tony Church but we can't win them all. Overall Minelli's performance was just spectacular, (I was a bit surprised hearing her swear) she is truly an actress."
As a Liza vehicle - it could be a six...

"As a product.... only 2 points... There is a pleasurable 80`s soundtrack(I first saw it in the theatre when I was in the military, the spring of 1988), but the highlight is Liza Minnelli in her best comic turn and with her good lines - she delivers PLENTY:-)))))))))))))))))"
