The Wrong Man (1993): a typo?  I noticed the questionable word "shit" on this page:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108597/?ref_=fn_al_tt_3
The summary of the movie begins, "US merchant sailor Alex Walker (Kevin Anderson) is stranded in Mexico, penniless and wanted by the police. He meets and joins up with an unlikely couple - aging but likable shit Phillip .."
But I can't imagine what word was intended, if "shit" was the wrong word.

I think the word choice may be intentional, meaning "A contemptible or worthless person." (Oxford Dictionary)
