    Synopsis


    Freebie and the Bean
    Freebie (James Caan) and the Bean (Alan Arkin) are a pair of San Francisco cops. Red Meyers (Jack Kruschen) is the mobster whom Freebie and the Bean would like to see behind bars -- or, failing that, six feet under. Nothing stands in the way of the cops' pursuit of Meyers, meaning that private property is given quite a going-over in this picture. The film's most memorable scene finds Freebie and the Bean crashing their car into a poor schnook's living room. TV favorites Loretta Swit and Valerie Harper play the only female roles worth mentioning. The racist and sexist humor in Freebie and the Bean may not go over as well today as it did in the politically incorrect early '70s. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Good film from the mid 70's when car chases were done for real. PQ excellent for an old title, audio is fine, nothing to blow up your surround sound.

      Just couldn't really get into the film. Will try to watch it again. But, for those fans of the film, it looks great.
