In ''Kuffs'', Creator/ChristianSlater plays George Kuffs, an irresponsible 21-year-old who walks out on his pregnant girlfriend Maya (Creator/MillaJovovich) and runs, broke, to see his big brother Brad (Bruce Boxleitner) in UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco. Bruce is the owner of a Special Patrol, a franchised civilian auxiliary police force. During George's visit, Bruce is killed, and George, who witnessed the killing, takes over the patrol to seek revenge. But first George has to earn respect from the patrol, and at first all of them want him out. But with the help of a police liaison (Creator/TonyGoldwyn), he uncovers an illicit scheme involving $50 million, a case Bruce was just about to break when he was killed. George decides to stick around and complete the work his brother started. ~ Paul Brenner

!!Tropes:
* BabiesEverAfter
* BreakingTheFourthWall: George talks to the audience throughout the movie, sometimes in the presence of other characters who fail to notice.
* BondOneLiner: After one of the two heroes shoots a mook in front of his companions. With a shotgun.
-->'''Mook:''' Twelve gauge pump, boys. They only got three shots. They can't get us all! *pulls out his gun* \\
'' Ted shoots him with a shotgun'' \\
'''George Kuffs:''' ''gestures to dead hood'' Well, now we know he can add... \\
''gestures to Ted'' \\
'''George Kuffs:''' And he can subtract. So who wants to be next here?
* ButtMonkey: Ted.
* CowboyCop: George.
* DisappearedDad: PlayedWith. George Kuff attempts this at the beginning of the film, later lamenting that his brother raised him.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Luck and reflexes can only explain so much...
* LawEnforcementInc: Premise of the film is that an irresponsible young man inherits his brother's San Francisco Patrol Special Police franchise.
* MoodWhiplash: The opening scene is happy, then fades to drama. About one third of the way through it becomes almost slapstick with the poor partner of George... Veering into a a dramatic comedy. Then, once the black comedy gets comfortable, the final two scenes happen. Wear a helmet.
* PrecisionFStrike: George Kuff's partner launches into a heavily bleeped tirade spoofing profanity bleeps (every swear word is covered with a different sound), culminating in [[TakeThat a very loud and unbleeped ''"FUCK YOU!"'']]
* {{Revenge}} The killing of George's brother is what turns George from "I'm not that sort of a guy" when offered a law enforcement position to the boss of {{Law Enforcement Inc}}.
* SoundEffectBleep: In the same scene as PrecisionFStrike, this is both used and subverted in the same scene, when Kuffs' dispatch radio overrides every swear word in a conversation between him and his police chaperon until the end, where he very clearly enunciates the [[PrecisionFStrike F Bomb]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12dEvNOMvmo here]].
* VictoryThroughIntimidation: Kuffs and Bukovsky, armed with pump shotguns, are facing about a dozen hoods in the film's climactic confrontation:
-->'''Unidentified Hood:''' It's a 12-gauge pump, boys. He's only got three shots. They can't get us all! \\
''He reaches for his gun, Ted blows him away'' \\
'''George Kuffs:''' ''gestures to dead hood'' Well, now we know he can add... \\
''gestures to Ted'' \\
'''George Kuffs:''' And he can subtract. So who wants to be next here?
