Case Closed (1988) TV Movie

Dismissed as "annoyingly awful" by the critic at TV Guide, Case Closed has its moments of value now and again. Co-writer and co-producer Byron Allen stars as a hip black cop, assigned to solve a puzzling series of murders. Straight-laced white cop Charles Durning is dragged out of retirement to lend Allen a hand. The mismatched pair doesn't get along at first, but we'll bet the ranch that they're palsy-walsy before fade-out time. Filmed on location in Atlanta, this spotty "action comedy" was first telecast on April 19, 1988. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
