(Warner Bros., 1993)
That rarest of cinematic achievements, a great movie based on a TV melodrama.
Due in no small measure to the anti-buddy pairing of Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones, this movie was a blockbuster hit of the year. It made its production budget back in its opening week, racking up $368M total; earned seven Oscar nominations, including Best Picture; and scored a well-earned Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Jones' performance.
It's quite simply one of the best thrillers made since North By Northwest.
