The FBI has had no success in locating The Duke, so when Jack finds him in next to no time, they are a little embarrassed. In order to collect his $100,000 fee, Jack must take The Duke from New York to Los Angeles. However, the Mafia and the FBI have other ideas, as does Marvin Dorfler (John Ashton), a rival bounty hunter. On their long cross-country trip to LA, the two get to know each other and they build up a strange friendship.
Plot: An accountant embezzles $15 million of mob money, jumps bail and is chased by bounty hunters, the FBI, and the Mafia.

Pleasantly surprised by this one. I had heard people refer to this one, but hadn’t seen it for myself until recently. One of the better buddy-action movies I’ve seen, due to a very tight script. Superior writing by George Gallo. The story is what drives this movie from beginning to end, and doesn’t need to depend solely on the cast to keep the audience interested for the full 2 hours. DeNiro and Grodin are excellent together, with a great supporting cast. I would keep this movie in my personal collection. I would also consider it a fine example for other buddy action movies to follow, even today. Highly recommended for great comedic writing, directing and acting.
An engaging adventure with two likable stars…
DeNiro is (Jack Walsh) a self-righteous ex-cop so unpopular with the Chicago police department, now wanting to make one final ‘midnight run’ that’ll pay big so he can buy a nice coffee shop
He is hired by an hysterical bondsman to find and bring back a former Mob accountant called Jonathan “The Duke” Mardukas (Grodin) who has stolen $15 million from the Los Angeles mob, given the money to the ‘unfortunates of the earth.’
DeNiro quickly captures the ‘white-collar criminal’ in New York, and is given five days to bring him to Los Angleles, to collect his $100,000 fee…
Unfortunately for DeNiro, the fugitive accountant is too neurotic to fly the distance… The embezzler’s ex-boss wants him badly for knowing all his financial transactions, and agent Yaphet Kotto warns Walsh not to interfere with the FBI’s plans to bring the ‘Duke’ into federal court And if this isn’t enough, there is some third-rate bounty hunter (John Ashton) who is intrigued about DeNiro’s special deal
In an extended cross-country chase, the two men’s personalities and relationship develop
DeNiro shows how to catch talents of improvisation… His cheeky schoolboy look certainly supplies some of the film’s lighter moments… He delivers some of the best punchlines, when he replies: ‘Well if you don’t cooperate, you’re gonna suffer from fistophobia.’
Charles Grodin is perfect as the prisoner who gets some of Serrano’s records on computer disks, figuring if things got too rough, he could always trade them for his life He continually gets on DeNiro’s nerves, and with his soft and ironic tone of voice he advises Walsh that a restaurant is ‘a very tricky investment.’ He easily dips into Jack Walsh’s life (‘Don’t you want to be loved?’), wandering about his broken marriage (‘Did she hurt you, Jack?’), his habits (‘Cigarettes are killers. Put the cigarette out.’) and whatever he can think of…
The best parts of the film are, in fact, the interactions between the two stars The story holds up perfectly and entertains the viewer in every way Martin Brest does bring out the realistic, funny and moving sides of his likable characters Suspense is maintained to the very end
