Storyline

Larry Gormley (Tim Curry) dreams of becoming a star entertainer, but until then, he drives a cab and works as chauffeur for the shady Ramirez (George S. Irving). One day he has a look in the suitcase that Ramirez is carrying around: it's full of money. He can't resist and steals it. In front of his friends, he claims he's finally got a contract with a famous director and invites them to celebrate, while the mob is after the money.

This is one of Tim Curry's best roles. He sings and dances!
25 January 2000 | by TimCfanSee all my reviews

This is a great MUSICAL comedy. Why do they have it as a crime film for genre??? If you spend the time to get a used copy of this you will be glad you did (if you're a Tim Curry fan). He sings, dances, and does impressions. This is a Tim Curry fan pleaser.
