Ok. So the way I've described above sounds probably even better than the movie actually looks.
But... You have to believe ( if You still haven't watched it yet ) that it's really hard to tell what the whole thing is about.
But... incase You'd like to resign from watching yet already do not be afraid. IT'S WORTH IT.
It has a lot of good stuff in it. And it has Kurt Russel and beautifull Kim Cattrall as well.
And there are martial arts. And some gunfights as well. And a bit of comedy. And a bit o kitsch. Lots and lots of kitsch to be honest by this is a good kind of kitsch, the one You enjoy.
Using other words, this one o…

Directed by: Herbert Ross ( that guy from 'Footloose' )

Script: Nora Ephron ( that lady from 'When Harry met Sally' )

WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT: 
A 10000 $ suit mobster from New York ( Steve Martin ) is forced to move into a tiny quiet pisshole somewhere in California after taking part in the witness protection program.

To Watch it or Not... This is a Question!

Surprisingly, even to myself, one of the worst thing in it is... Rick Moranis! A great comedy actor, one of my big favorites to say more, is just clearly in the wrong place and doesn&#…
