Mad Dog and Glory is a comedy-drama movie that was released in 1993 and directed by John McNaughton. The story revolves around the main character Wayne Dobie (Robert De Niro), who is a police officer who finds the only enjoyable part of his job is using his love for photography to take crime scene photos. After years on the force, Dobie has been nicknamed Mad Dog by his fellow officers. While responding to a hold up at a convenience store he inadvertently saves the life of mobster Frank Milo (Bill Murray). As a reward for saving his life, Milo invites Mad Dog to his comedian club, where the mobster spends much of his time pursuing comedy, his true love. Milo furthers his reward for Mad Dog by offering the services of one of his "girls" named Glory (Uma Thurman). Mad Dog and Glory fall in love during this week but Milo is not willing to give her up permanently and demands $45,000 to relieve her of her duties. Unable to come up with that much money, Mad Dog is forced to have a fistfight with Milo in order to win the girl he loves.moreless
