Plot Of 'Midnight Run' Described At Length To Therapist

DULUTH, GA—Duluth resident Paul Bennett's aim to tackle unresolved emotional issues during a $110-per-hour session with his therapist Tuesday somehow digressed into an earnest recapping of the plot of the action-comedy film Midnight Run, sources reported. "So then there's this other bounty hunter, and he's also after Charles Grodin, except he's kind of dumb so they always outsmart him," said Bennett, providing a 20-minute synopsis of the sleeper-hit buddy-movie to his clinical psychologist. "There's this funny scene where Robert De Niro yells the guy's name and points behind him, and then the guy turns around and De Niro conks him over the head. Anyway, it's actually a really good movie."
