Storyline

Through an improbable series of events and an impossibly bungled supermarket hold-up, down on their luck con men Matt and Wilbur find themselves working with the Miami police force. As they patrol the streets of the city, their main job becomes trying to break the hold of the city's street gangs, including one group of teens in old movie-gangster style clothes, led by a kid named Geronimo who dresses in full Indian warrior regalia. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Spencer and hill are at it again
11 April 2006 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

This movie is tons of fun. Spencer and Hill meet each other in the harbor while looking for work. They decide to rob a store, and see two cops in there. They tell the cops that they want to be cops as well. Afterwards, they run into a police station and tell them again that they want to be cops. So they get hired.

My favorite bad guy is the Indian chief sitting on the hood of the pickup truck. The football fighting scene was a riot as well. The whole thing is filled with laughs, and is one of my favorite Spencer and Hill movies.

Watch it when you have some free time, or when you are in a bad mood. It will cheer you up.
