      Jack t One Good Cop, starring Michael Keaton, not gonna watch it again because it was sxxt. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/18/23 Full Review Steve D I never know what I want to happen in films like these but the results leave me shrugging. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member One of my favorite Michael Keaton movies. A forgotten gem. If you like Keaton check it out. The rest of the cast is stand out. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member One Good Cop hasn't aged well especially in today's climate. There are decent performances from Rene Russo and Michael Keaton. Starts off as decent buddy cop comedy, but with the death of one of them on the job, it delves into a manipulative melodrama. The conclusion now feels the opposite of "feel good" by portraying problematic law enforcement behaviour. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I think it's a great family movie, even though it's underrated. Michael Keaton and Rene Russo have a great chemistry ! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member The drama is good, but becomes complicated in the middle of the plot and perhaps a bit too much action verging on cheesy. But, Keaton and Russo do well. Later in the '90s spawned even worse stories. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

Rated: 2/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) Keaten is as good as can be within a synthetic role.
