McDonald at the Movies: Midnight Run

Wed, Jul 11 / 7 pm
Directed by Martin Brest
1988, USA, 126 min

Once a month, comedian and co-founder of Kids in The Hall, Kevin McDonald will present a film handpicked from the archives of comic history.

Introduced by Kevin McDonald.

In one of the funniest buddy road pictures ever made Robert De Niro plays Jack Walsh, an ex-cop now a bounty hunter who is hired by bail bondsman to pick up an accountant Jonathan ‘The Duke’ Mardukas (Charles Grodin) who’s stolen $15 million from the mob and has jumped bail. Taking him back to LA, Walsh also has to fend off rival bounty hunters, mobsters and the FBI who are all out to catch him.

Reviews

A work of rare brilliance, thanks first and foremost to its miraculous co-stars Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin, a pairing that has rarely if ever been matched in the annals of buddy comedy. Midnight Run is still one of the best action comedies ever made.
- Paul Greenwood, Alone in the Dark
Midnight Run has thrills, excellent performances, touching moments, lively dialogue, plenty of laughs, beautiful locations and finely detailed direction....the best new movie I've seen in years.
