Now this was an interesting buddy cop flick shot in ´89 and released in 1990.
"Mac, the two fisted savy cop finds that he's being saddled with a new partner, a known burn out, to work with him on a new and difficult case. The new partner is, Ellis, an amazing detective, one who puts Sherlock Holmes to shame with his lightning fast deductions. Ellis has a couple of problems. He keeps assuming the personalities of entire casts of Television shows. This can be a problem when people begin shooting at them." (IMDb)
Loose Cannons was directed by Bob Clark (Porky´s etc.) and written by Clark and Richard Christian Matheson (Three O´Clock High, It Takes Two)
The film stars Gene Hackman, Dan Aykroyd, Dom DeLuise, Ronny Cox, Nancy Travis, Paul Koslo and D1ck O´Neill.

Lots of jokes in this movie, some are good but some are really bad ones. Neo Nazis, S&M club, Hitler sex tape, Aykroyd singing tv-theme tunes... OMG
I know that lots of people say that this is a mess. I say that it is an entertaining mess
Aykroyd has his moments, and Hackman doesn't embarass himself, but the film is a mess. The problem is that like Dr. Detroit, it is very sit-comy. But unlike Dr. Detroit, which is very funny and wisely uses Aykroyd's immense talent, this just lies there DOA. I mean, a Roadrunner impresson? C'mon... LOL
