The Defiant Ones

Year: 1986
Director: David Lowell Rich
Cast: Robert Urich, Carl Weathers
This wasn't the seminal and original anti-buddy movie, but the cheap and yet still somehow reverent TV remake with Robert Urich and Carl Weathers.

Well intentioned and performed, it pulled off the unique trick of referencing the original rather than present a realistic story.

Two convicts escape from their work detail while chained together and try to stay one step of the law in their condition, hating each other the whole time. It's only when they lose the chain they realise they have to stick together and have become friends.
