From John Badham, the director of Blue Thunder, Stakeout and The Hard Way comes one of 1990's favourite action comedies!


Corporate lawyer Marianne Graves (Goldie Hawn) has believed her ex-fiance to be dead for 15 years. Pulling into a Michigan gas station, Marianne is shocked to find him not only alive and well but cleaning her windshield!


Rick Jarmin (Mel Gibson) has been in the Witness Protection programme and, his cover blown, becomes the target of vengeful gangsters just released from prison. Together Marianne and Rick have to flee across the country to prove Rick's identity with the gangsters in hot pursuit.


Also starring David Carradine, Bill Duke, Stephen Tobolowsky and Joan Severance, BIRD ON A WIRE is a rare treat on 35mm and the big screen.
