2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mitch Weaver on March 2 2004
Format: DVD
The story focuses on a man that has jumped bail named Johnathan "The Duke" Mardukas ( Charles Grodin). Mardukas is the ex-account of a Las Vegas mob boss named Jimmy Serrano ( Dennis Farina). The Duke embezzled millions of dollars from Serrano and gave it away to charity before being arrested. Eddie Marcone (Joe Pantoliano)is the bail bondsman that bailed The Duke out of jail. Marcone only has 5 days left, before the bond is forfieted and he is out $100,000. So he sends bounty hunter Jack Walsh (Robert DeNiro)to retrieve The Duke and bring him back. Unfortunately, Jimmy Serrano wants The Duke dead, and sends two hitmen to kill him. Not to mention the fact that the F.B.I. want to be the ones who bring The Duke to justice. If things couldn't get any worse, there is also a rival bounty hunter named Marvin ( John Ashton)who is trying to bring The Duke in himself. Now it is up to Jack to keep The Duke alive and in one piece, while avoiding Marvin, the FBI, and the two mafia hitmen that are hot on their tails. However, with The Duke constantly trying to escape Jack's custody, Jack begins to realize that he is in for much more than he bargained for.
Midnight Run is without a doubt the best "buddy" film ever made. The reason is because Jack and The Duke's friendship takes the whole movie to develop. Nothing about their relationship is cut and dry. The Duke will do something to make Jack like him one minute, and then upset him the next with repeated escape attempts. The film also features the perfect mix of action and comedy as well. There are certain points in the film that are extremely funny and entertaining. The dialogue in this film is first rate. Then you are also drawn into the film because there are so many obstacles Jack and The Duke must overcome on their way to L.A..

One of the funniest films ever made that still manages to hold up an engaging plot. A total winner.
It features some of the most genuinely stupid and amusing tough guys in the history of cinema, and a tantalizing slow burn by Deniro, a shortchanged ex-cop, who just wants a peaceful little coffee shop as payment for his decency and integrity. The comic chemistry between Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin is top-drawer. Surrounded on all side by ethical infants, these two characters at least know the difference between virtue and vice, and are ironically the moral backbone of the film.
Comedies that don't wallow in their humor are twice as much fun, and Midnight Run maintains a swift pace throughout. Situation-wise, it's a dynamo of action. I found the denouement to be quite moving as well, at the very least it provokes thought.
If you're looking for a comedy with depth, bite, wit and excitement, then catch Midnight Run. The DVD's spiffy special features quite simply reinforce my recommendation of purchasing this one, not just renting.

Best line ever in a movie: "That's right and i got two words for you: Shut the f.;k up!" Watch the ad-libs on the bus as Grodin bugs him to put the cigarette out, DeNiro has to hold from laughing, holding a sick smile, going, "I can't believe this f'n guy"...DeNiro, Pantiliano, Grodin, Ashton, Farina, Kotto,...with a great script by Gallo, Brest directing, Danny Elfman's bluesy music...are you kidding me...this movie is funny, touching, adventorous...just watch it...it's one that never grows old cause' it says so much about all of us...

Who would think that one of De Niro's best movies was a comedy?
This is a great buddy movie and a great comedy with a nice touch of redemption and karma.
De Niro and Grodin are both at their comedic best in this novel road movie. This is a lot of fun and to no one's surprise there's another good performanbce by Joe Pantoliano.

Format: VHS Tape
ONCE AGAIN DENIRO SHOWS HIS WIDE RANGE AS A GREAT ACTOR. HE, AND GRODIN BOUNCE OFF OF ONE ANOTHER TERRIFICLY. THIS IS THE BEST OF THE BUDDY FLICKS.
DENNIS FARINA'S MOBSTER IS EQUALLY HILARIOUS IN HIS AGGRESSIVE DEVIANCE.
DENIRO PLAYS DISGRUNTLED EX-COP TURNED SKIP CHASER (JACK WALSH) OUT TO CASH IN ON A $100.000 DOLLAR BOUNTY FOR WHITE COLLAR CROOK GRODIN WHO IS WANTED BY THE AUTHORITIES AS WELL AS THE BIG TIME MOBSTERS HE EMBEZZELED FROM. WHAT FOLLOWS IS A ROLLER COASTER RIDE FULL OF WELL CORREGRAPHED ACTION AND SIDE SPLITTING ANTICS.
I LAUGH HARDER EVERY TIME I WATCH IT.
DENIRO'S WALSH HAS HIS HANDS FULL KEEPING HIS CATCH FROM THE F.B.I., THE CHICAGO SYNDICATE AND A RIVAL BOUNTY HUNTER OUT TO STEAL HIS APPREHENDEE. THE RIVAL IS MARVIN WHO IS A SKILLED DOGGER HIMSELF BUT A SHADE ON THE DENSE SIDE.
WALSH EASILY DISTRACTS THE COMPETITOR BY POINTING OFF INTO THE DISTANCE AND SAYING "HEY MARVIN!"
I GUESS YOU HAVE TO SEE IT TO FULLY APPRECIATE THE SIMPLE HUMOR.
I CANT THINK OF ANOTHER FILM I HAVE LAUGHED AS HARD AT IN YEARS.
THE MOVIE WORKS GREAT AS AN ACTIONEER AS WELL.
"HEY MARVIN!" I LOVE IT.
