Movie Recommendation of the Week: Big Shots

There’s actually a funny story behind this movie.   For the life of me I was trying to remember the title of this film.  The movie itself just crept up on me the other day and for the life of me I kept thinking the name was Tough Guys (which is a movie with Burt Lancaster).

Finally I typed in the search term “white kid and black kid runaway” and on the first try found it in Yahoo answers.   Anyway, the movie is called Big Shots and here’s what it’s about:

Following the death of his father, suburbanite Obie runs away from home and winds up on Chicago’s South Side. After being mugged, he befriends con artist Scam. The two then embark on a Down South adventure involving gangsters, the police, and a search for Scam’s father.

P.S. Scam is played by Darius McCrary from Family Matters.   Also, Ivan Reitman actually had a hand in this movie.   I mean it’s a dumb movie but certainly entertaining and will take you back to your childhood.

Check out the trailer after the jump…


I don’t know why they have this stupid lame 80s trailer music.   The movie was actually kind of heart warming.
