Burt Reynolds has never been cooler or sexier than when he's paired with Dyan Cannon in this lusty, bawdy adventure.
Reynolds is McCoy, a private detective with a penchant for pocket billiards, loot and women. A baffling murder by a flame-throwing killer is linked to a million-dollar diamond theft. The eccentric owner of the heisted gems commissions McCoy to find the killer - and the stolen goods. McCoy, however, discovers that his bizarre client is after more than just diamonds when he uncovers a fantastic scheme to sell surplus military weapons on the international black market.
Pursued by thugs and beaten up, McCoy takes comfort in an affair with Alexis (Cannon). When McCoy's pool hall sidekick is found murdered, he decides to take matters into his own hands in the true private eye style.
Reynolds proves his star-power as McCoy, a tough pool player turned private eye. He's hired by a millionaire to find the killer of a known diamond thief. On the trail, he uncovers a ring of gun runners and illegal arms dealing, along with a willing woman (Dyan Cannon) who thinks her brother is somehow involved. Reynolds deftly navigates this blend of comedy and 1970s action.
