Touch And Go is a 1986 comedic drama film directed by Robert Mandel, starring Michael Keaton, María Conchita Alonso and Ajay Naidu.


Bobby Barbato (Keaton) is a pro athlete in ice hockey. As always, he expects cheering crowds and beautiful women coming after him. But one day, a gang of youths begin to mug him but he manages to fend them off and then catches the youngest member of the gang, Louis DeLeon (Naidu). He then gives Louis a ride home and meets his mother, Denise (Alonso). After a fight, Bobby moves on with his life but then he and Denise begin to fall for each other and Louis eventually becomes close friends with the hockey player.



The film was wrapped in late 1984 and intended for a 1985 release but then shelved, due to a change of studio representation–from Universal to Tri-Star–as well as extensive rescoring and reassembling of promotional ads during post-production.[1] It was then released in late 1986.
