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 boys are back in town. Nick Nolte is a cop. Eddie Murphy is a convict. They couldn't have liked each other less. They couldn't have needed each other more. And the last place they ever expected to be is on the same side. Even for... 48 HRS

Did You Know?
The weapon carried initially by Jack Cates (Nick Nolte
) and then taken by Albert Ganz (James Remar
) at the hotel shootout, is a Smith and Wesson model 29, 44 magnum with a 4inch barrel and custom wood grips with finger grooves. The loaner weapon issued to Cates at the station house is a Government model Colt 1911 A1, 45 automatic. Cates seems to carry this pistol in the same shoulder holster he used for his 44 revolver. In reality, this is impractical as the two weapons have very different contours. Probably a different holster was switched in for the automatic pistol. The weapon procured by Reggie Hammond (Eddie Murphy
) while waiting for Cates at Vroman's, is a snub nosed Smith and Wesson model 19, 357magnum. The weapon used by Billy Bear (Sonny Landham
) is a Colt New Frontier. This is basically the classic western six shooter only with more modern sights. However, the adjustable rear sight seems to have been removed from the weapon used in the movie. During his initial arrest, Luther (David Patrick Kelly
) shoots at Cates with a Colt New Service revolver, most likely a 45 calibre issue. Oddly, the front sight appears to have been completely filed off of this weapon. See more
While looking for Luther, Jack and Reggie visit an apartment in The Mission and learn they should look for their quarry "just around the corner in Chinatown." In reality the Mission is 3 miles from Chinatown. See more
