| I don't buy him stealing
NYPD detective Artie Lewis (Michael Keaton) has a loving wife Rita (Rene Russo) and trusted partner in Stevie Diroma (Anthony LaPaglia). Stevie is a widow with three kids but he is killed during a domestic hostage situation. Artie is made legal guardian and tries to adopt them. Felix (Benjamin Bratt) is his new partner. Artie is looking to buy a house to satisfy Child Welfare Services but he needs a $25k down payment. He decides to rob drug lord Beniamino Rios (Tony Plana) but Beniamino's girlfriend Grace De Feliz (Rachel Ticotin) is actually an undercover narcotics cop.

There are a lot of little problems that kind of adds up. The cop stories seems a bit old. I do like the kids and Russo. If this is simply about them struggling to make it, I think it would be quite a good movie. The money problem has a lot of little questions. There should be a large payout for Stevie since he died on the job. If they had no money after the payout, then Stevie was really deep in the hole before. It's also questionable why a small apartment in NYC would keep them from adopting. It is New York City. He's a cop and they both work. Why wouldn't the bank lend them money? He's getting a great deal on the house anyways and the bank should easily lend him that much. It's really questionable that Artie would resort to stealing from Rios.
