Ok movie buffs...looking for the title of an older movie. It was an action/thriller type movie about a guy who was driving somewhere in the hood with his mistress in the car and they ran into some trouble with some thugs. The car was messed up and I wanna say they maybe ran over one of the guys. Cops were called and he was trying to figure out a way to leave his mistress out of the whole situation. I feel like he was a Denzel Washington type guy. Or maybe the lead detective...I can’t recall. Help!!!

In this situation, when you think you remember 1 actor in the title, this feature can help. Go to the actor's page, and in the right column click Explore More to get:

Pick one of the filmography categories (other than Job), and you can refine the result:

And then you can scan through the plot summaries.
(You could do an ATS (Advanced Title Search) for a similar result, but that lacks the ability to screen by job type.)

I don't see anything promising there, but maybe I scanned too fast.

The plot you describe sounds familiar, but only vaguely.

I should have mentioned I already looked up Denzel. Nothing popped out at me.

Shannon: While it's definitely not an action-thriller, the initial plot setup you describe reminded me of The Bonfire of the Vanities (1990). But that's probably not the film you were thinking of.
