I actually watched this a month ago on tv and the end caught me again last night.

Rebecca De Mornay and Mary to become federal agents. I actually saw it on tv maybe in the early 90's.

I really enjoy and always felt those two were a great balance and great pair.....but Mary Gross is so freaking adorable as Zuckerman I usually hate girls that are mousy and talk under their breath haha but she's just so lovable.....she's almost the same character in Casual Sex and Troop Beverly Hills but I still want to send some admiration out to the former SNL cast member Mary Gross.

This could be a funny flick.
I believe that it´s not available on dvd?
I know a place where i could get the VHS tape though.

I don't want you guys to think it's the best movie ever or anything....haha but it's cute and funny and those two really are believable as tough broads! [Smile]

Remember renting this back in the day... and can't recall a thing about it. I think I thought it was so-so. Maybe I was too young?

It's an awesome 80s classic must see.

I think the WB or MGM website was offering a DVD of it. I forget which. I also caught it again on the encore channels recently.

really well done film.

I watched Feds on TV here last night..

Kinda predictable comedy, but Rebecca DeMornay and Mary Gross make a charming team.
The scene where Gross gets drunk during a night out is hilarious.


Feds is the sole directorial effort of Canadian writer / producer Daniel Goldberg, who co-wrote
Meatballs and Stripes, and went on to produce the highly succesful Hangover trilogy.

Feds has been on my to watch list for ages now and Rebecca De Mornay sure did look mighty fine back in the day and no more so I feel than in Risky Business (above) back in 1983.

Never even heard of Feds (1988) before I just saw this thread - but it sounds like it's worth checking out. Anything with '80's-era Rebecca DeMornay can't be all bad [Wink]

I just checked, and the film came out on DVD in 2010.

Feds is so lightweight that it pretty much blows away and out of memory. Again, likeable leads but not really funny enough to be memorable, though Mary Gross getting drunk is indeed funny.

And - for some reason - not available on R2 dvd, only R1 import for stoopid money...
