Short Time ★★★ 1990 (PG-13)
Somewhere between “Tango & Cash” and “Airplane” is where you'll find “Short Time.” Nonstop action/comedy stars Dabney Coleman and Teri Garr as partners in crime and humor. Coleman is a cop days from retirement; wrongly told he is dying, he tries hard to get killed so his family will be provided for. Coleman is wonderful. Garr, no longer the longsuffering wife of “Oh, God” and “Close Encounters,” is appealing here as the indulgent sidekick. 100m/C VHS . Dabney Coleman, Teri Garr, Matt Frewer, Barry Corbin, Joe Pantoliano, Xander Berkeley, Rob Roy, KajErik Eriksen; D: Gregg Champion; W: John Blumenthal, Michael Berry; M: Ira Newborn.
