DVD – Made in 1995, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence make a comedic win of a movie. There has been a break in at the police station in the evidence locker and a ton of heroin has been stolen without a huge scene being made. They now have 72 hours to reclaim all that heroin before the FBI and CIA get involved. To complicate matters, they have to protect a witness (Julie) who happened to see the thieves murder her best friend while the drugs are exposed in the room. Her best friend always told her that if anything ever happened to her and she needed someone, Will Smiths character is THE ONLY person she trusts. Julie calls the police station and says she knows what happened and will only talk to Will Smiths character. He was off pursuing another lead, so Martin Lawrence picks up the phone and says he is Will. The two lead very different lives and its comical to see how they portray each other. Will they get the heroin back? At what cost to the city? Will they keep Julie alive? So many ways this one can play out.
This is a moderately older movie, but its a goodie. To see the stereotypes being played out by two comedians is hilarious. There is definitely a large amount of cursing and racial slurs, and intense action so I do not recommend this for children. This movie was such a hit, that they even made Bad Boys II in 2003. Snuggle up for a fun adult night with this pair of movies!
