Oddball cop and tough guy, Jack Cates is the only survivor of a cop shooting and in hunting down the murderer collects Reggie Hammond from jail for 48 hours. Hammond is oddly motivated to help. The killer is searching for his stash of cash. Cates and Hammond who have the Black-white, cop-crook thing to work out make surprisingly good partners as they navigate through the city looking for their suspect. Written by

The make and model of Jack Cates (Nick Nolte
)'s car is a sky blue 1964 Cadillac DeVille convertible. The nick-name that Hammond (Murphy) calls Cates (Nolte)'s car was a "piece of shit sky-blue Cadillac". The make and model of Reggie Hammond (Eddie Murphy
)'s car is said to be a Porsche in the film, meaning a Porsche 356 Speedster, but the vehicle, seen in both gray due to dust and once cleaned, black, actually is a Intermeccanica 356 A Speedster replica built by CMC (Classic Motor Carriage). See more
