I've always enjoyed The Enforcer for all the reasons you just mentioned, Brannigan. Harry's working relationship with Kate. The comedic aspects in the film worked well for me as well. Harry's disgust at being partnered with a woman at the start but by the end of the film, she just maybe the best partner he's ever had.

I actually felt that while Harry's relationship with Kate was good, I was cringing at times because it appeared as though they might have ended up together, which would have been totally against Harry's creed. I am of course talking about the scene at Coit Tower where they are having a beer after Harry has been dismissed from a case. Kate is talking about sex and it just started getting uncomfortable.

There are some quotes which are difficult to understand for non-American people. For instance when Callahan says : « This is the Fillmore chapter of the VFW... Very Few Whites». On the French version, Fillmore isn't mentioned. What is the meaning of this sentence, please ?

The Filmore District is a neighborhood in San Francisco, historically known for its African-American population.

If you are wondering about "V.F.W.," it more usually stands for Veterans of Foreign Wars, a veterans' group with chapters all over the U.S.
