    One of BEST Movie EVER!!

    Can't say enough about Don Johnson. I have most of his
    movies. Also, own his series Miami Vice. Nash Bridges
    is just beginning to be made available.
    His acting is terrific. I compare him with Paul Newman.
    He acts,directs,knows the craft inside and out. He
    becomes the character.

    I recommend for purchase: Miami Vice Series, Nash Bridges,
    any and all movies starring Don Johnson.
