Bad Boys

Lists: Action, Comedy

Brief Synopsis: "Marcus Burnett is a hen-pecked family man. Mike Lowry is a foot-loose and fancy free ladies' man. Both are Miami policemen, and both have 72 hours to reclaim a consignment of drugs stolen from under their station's nose. To complicate matters, in order to get the assistance of the sole witness to a murder, they have to pretend to be each other."

Dan O'Neill65 - Bad Boys has the same formula we have seen many times before in all buddy-cop films, but features exciting action to mix with a great on-screen chemistry between both Lawrence and Smith, although I think they could have done something different.

Bryan Lienesch63 - If you're going to throw substance and plot out the window for thrills, the thrills better be REALLY good. Here, they are just 'meh'.
