On the trail of a ruthless serial killer, the last thing Moss needs is a pampered Hollywood sidekick.

Fresh: There is nothing very remarkable about The Hard Way, except for its comic energy, but the energy of this movie is everything, reminding me of the wisecracking, hard-boiled screwball comedies of the 1940s.
Not a great movie but still entertaining. James Woods is BRILLIANT in this movie and Michael J. Fox is a GREAT sidekick. Definitly worth a watch!
Not an amazing movie altogether but the acting is funny and makes you laugh, MJF is great and horribly annoying in the beginning(in a good way). (when john was interrogating a gang for crucial information nick comes up.) "They stole my cellular phone John!" well worth the money to buy it
This is one of my all-time favorite comedies, and one of my all time favorite movies for that fact. The comedic timing between Woods & Fox is brilliant. If you want to watch an obviously great comdey, and relax and enjoy, buy or rent this. You'll won't be disappointed.
