Steven Seagal is “The Glimmer Man.” Keenen Ivory Wayans is the poor guy stuck as his partner. Emmy winner Chris Regan (“Shatner Rules”) and Local Emmy loser Paul Sullivan (Sullybaseball.com) were forced to watch this movie. They are back with a full report. I walked out of this movie when it came out. And I saw it on a plane. Hello. But listener and former guest Bucky Sinister suggested the film. I’m a man of my word… but shit man… what did I ever do to you? Seriously. Jeez.
But buddy cop films are not as easy as they seem. Stalone makes throwing out cool lines look effortless and Eddie Murphy can make any temper tantrum look funny. But it doesn’t mean any Tom, Dick and Henry Jaglom can just jump in squad car.
There’s the good, the bad the ugly. “The Glimmer Man” is the bad.
Here are the past reviews of the good and the ugly. You figure out which is which.
(I know I promise Chris Gore and Logan’s Run. But Chris told me he couldn’t promote it until January, so I’m going to hold it for a couple of weeks. I have some great shows in the can, including guests like Wayne Federman, Sharon Houston, Nicko, and the guys from “Story Worthy.” I’m going to record “Hard Ticket to Hawaii” with Nicko this week and try to turn it around for next week.)
