Burt Simpson (Dabney Coleman) is nearing retirement and he finds that he has a disease that will kill him within days. He then finds that his life insurance only pays off if he is killed in the line of duty. In order to leave something to his wife and children, Simpson becomes super cop, ignoring danger and trying his best to get killed.—John Vogel

Short Review

We are safely in sitcom country, and this is another one of those movies that is careful not to give the audience too much to worry or think about.
