(mbc.net) Jonathan 'The Duke'Mardukas (Charles Grodin) is an accountant who owes the mafia $15 million. In prison he's an easy target for mobsters seeking revenge, so his pal, bail bondsmen Eddie Moscone (Joe Pantoliano) springs Duke for $450,000.
Duke skips town shortly afterward, forcing Eddie to declare bankruptcy unless his cash is returned. With no options left, Eddie hires bounty hunter Jack Walsh (Robert De Niro) to capture Mardukas in New York and return him to Los Angeles. That's easier said than done, since the mob, the FBI, and a rival bounty hunter are searching for The Duke too.
Midnight Run was nominated for two Golden Globes. The picture earned $81.6 million at the box office, more than double its $30 million budget.
