This Is a classic 70's 'Buddy Buddy comedy/Actioneer, that certainlypaved the way for '48hr's 'Leathal Weapon' and many more cop flick's'Freebie And The Bean' star's James Caan, as the macho tough guy'freebie' Alan Arkin, is the short fused and neurotic 'Bean'
Freebie And The Bean have one goal together and that's to bring downthe Obnoxious 'Red Myer's who is the local mafia kingpin, but whilstwaiting for the Warrant to Arrest their man,They have to wait untilMonday for the Important Warrant to arrive,The pair have to fight offvarious hit men,
It's down to Freebie And The Bean, to catch the assassins's And try andget their man with hilarious and riotous result's which have some ofthe finest car stunt's committed to celluloid!,
Freebie And The Bean Also star's Lorreta Swit, Alex(Godfather Rocco)And Valerie Harper AsArkin's wife,There is a mildly amusing subplotwhich has Arkin Convinced his Ethnic wife is cheating on him withequally hilarious result's!
The film also excel's in the verbal Chit Chat between Arkin And Caan,The film has numerous funny moment's including the scene whereArkin/Caan, whilst in pursuit of the Assasain's Accidentally Skid offthe highway and crash in to two old people's apartment wall! That scenehas got to be seen to be believed!
The stunt men and women must have got paid a lot for this film, and itshow's incidentally the director Richard Rush, later Directed anothercult favorite 'The Stunt Man,
Hopefully warner brother's will finally release this although the filmlike a lot of 70's classic's is overtly not PC(politically Correct)It'll be great to view it in It's 2:35 -1 Aspect Ratio, a commentarytrack by Arkin And Caan, would make a load of fan's happy,
OMG. I can't believe all the chuckleheads banging on about un-pc thisand too much violence that. It's a stupid 70's comedy and one of thefive best from the 70's - Slapshot, Uptown Saturday Night and AnimalHouse being three others.
You get one choice of your own to add!
I just watched it again today and still enjoyed it as much as when Ifirst saw it in the 70's. Basically it takes the formula for chase gagsstraight the era of Buster Keaton as such and updates them to the 70's.
I'm still trying to figure out how some people claim that Arkin is astiff and has no chemistry with Cann. The only better pairing from thatperiod for comedy has been Cosby and Poitier.
I'm also running All In The Family (another celebration of un-PCness)and again, it's dated but I see very few people with the guts to putout that kind of comedy today.
