Gimme (Canadian tax) shelter
This movie was one of the last gasps to come from the Canadian tax shelter era of the late '70s to early '80. It has some interest because of its cast; not only are there a number of American stars who had appeared in earlier Canadian tax shelter efforts (Richard Harris, James Coburn, Lindsay Wagner, and Karen Black), but there are also some familiar Canadians who appeared in other such efforts (Saul Rubinek and John Ireland.) As it turns out, the interesting cast is about the only thing of interest about this movie. The generally predictable plot is certainly a problem, but the biggest problem with the movie is with Harris' character. His character commits so many unlikable actions (especially in the first third of the movie) that he's not only a real turn-off, the tender scenes he has with his young co-star Justin Henry are very unconvincing. The only other thing of interest to be found in the movie is seeing how much the Clint Eastwood movie "A Perfect World" stole from this movie eight years later.
