A former policeman-turned-bounty hunter Jack Walsh (Robert De Niro) is tasked with locating a mob accountant named “The Duke” (Charles Grodin) and bringing him to L.A. The job should be a “midnight run” (nice and easy in bounty hunter lingo). But when Jack finds The Duke, the FBI and the mob are anxious to get their hands on him, too. In a cross-country chase, Jack must evade the authorities, hide from the mob and prevent The Duke’s erratic personality from driving him mad. A brilliant buddy comedy/road trip flick from the director of the original Going in Style and Beverly Hills Cop.
