Thoroughly mediocre production about overbearing L.A. cops and their off-hours handling of job stress. Few of the strong cast emerge unscathed. Based on the Joseph Wambaugh novel.

I disagree totally with the one star rating of this entertaining film. I have been looking for a rerun or copy on DVD but alas has never been issued. Durning,Gossette, Quaid, Woods, Young and Haid were all very successful actors over the years. There were so many hilarious scenes that you would have to be a bit boring not to find the humour. The story line was a bit perdictable but who could forget the duck in the pants or the naked cop cuffed to a tree. Didn't that actor play Alan Freed in a later role. JAJ
