Synopsis
Michael Keneely and Patrick Farrel are partners on the L.A. vice-squad. Most of their work involves busting call girls, employees in massage parlors, and homosexuals. After working this detail for some time, they come to the conclusion that crime boss Carl Rizzo is responsible for most of the crime in Los Angeles, and begin to harass him mercilessly. Unfortunately, this makes them not only the targets of the entire criminal population in the city, but of the police department, too.
