| 1991 film starring Michael Keaton
I've always liked Michael Keaton, and for some reason, he's not around as much as he once was, which is a shame.

"One Good Cop" from 1991 is the story of a cop, Artie Lewis (Keaton) who loses his partner Stevie of eight years (Anthony LaPaglia) during a shootout. He's devastated. Then he learns that in Stevie's will, he made Artie and his wife Rita (Rene Russo) the guardians of his three daughters. They move into Artie's small apartment. As guardian, he is responsible for the children's' well-being, but they can go into foster care and ultimately be adopted. Since Artie and Rita don't have a lot of money, this seems a good solution. But Rita was unable to have children, and now she wants to keep the girls. Artie makes a decision that could have disastrous results.

This movie was okay, with some good performances by the principals, as well as Kevin Conway, Rachel Ticotin, Benjamin Bratt, and Tony Plana.

This easily could have been made for television were it not for Keaton and Russo being attached to it. It's a decent rental.
