Around the World in 80 days
An all-star television mini-series bringing to life Jules Verne's classic adventure
tale of an anything-goes race around the world. Stars Pierce Brosnan as Phileas Fogg. he
is in Part II.
Comments by Vicky Keonin (Scout):Rick is some rich guy who is
having a party on his yacht. He has less than 5 minutes of screen time. It just
shows him in a reception line greeting the Pierce Brosnan character, and then a
little later he has a few more lines. You could wear out the fast-forward button on this
one! He does flash his smile, but I almost missed it as he has side-burns in this that
have a life of their own!

Two policemen (one gay, one ultra-macho straight) team up to solve murders in the
city's gay community; as part of this undercover operation they must set up house as a
couple. Very un-PC. Stars Ryan O'Neal and John Hurt. Rick Jason appears in a serious role
near the very end of the film.

Comments by Vicky Keonin (Scout): It's a strange movie, and they dubbed in a
different voice for Rick Jason. I must admit, I just fast-forwarded to all of his
scenes. It's a video worth having if only for the last scene of a shirtless Rick
Comments by Vicky Keonin (Scout): Illegally Yours is a screw-ball comedy and
Rick Jason plays a farcical character. He has several scenes, and it's fun to see
him do comedy.
Comments by Jo: a painfully un-funny farce starring Rob Lowe and filmed in Saint
Augustine, Florida. As a Floridian, I loved watching the location filming and enjoyed Rick
Jason as a pumped-up crazy cop. Unfortunately, there's far more of Lowe than of Jason.
Bree says: "I snagged a copy of Illegaly Yours, a light-weight comedy
from '88 with a good premise, good intentions, ok script but some sloppy direction. Oh,
and Rick -- in a moustache and a cop's uniform. It took me until his third scene before I
even realized it was him. And I loved the mother's explanation to the central character's
question of why choose *him* to have around -- (to paraphrase) "well, he's
tall." Yes... he's tall and still in pretty good shape (you can tell since he's in
his undershirt at one point). And, yes, there's a lovely shot or two of him doing his
not-to-be-forgotten loping wiggle-bum walk"
