Storyline

Two hotshot LAPD cops get in hot water after breaking up a fight at a local bar. They get suspended from the force and have to find a way to pay the rent. First they try construction work, then stripping, but newspaper reporter Janice Edwards has a really good idea...professional wrestling. A rival manager, Lord Percy, does not like her new team, The Boston Bad Guys (the cops) and will do anything he can to keep them from appearing on the same card as his team, the Kremlin Crushers. Still, the Bad Guys want to get revenge on the Krushers. Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

Wacky Fun
27 November 2004 | by (Cincinnati, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I started laughing the second I saw the Box and continued to laugh for nearly the entire 87 minutes of the movie.

'Bad Guy' follows along as two cousins and suspended 'good guy' cops Dave Adkins (Jolly) and Skip Jackson (Baldwin) attempt to first get real jobs and then become big time wrestlers.

Along the way Skip, the wild one, manages to continually get them into trouble starting with their suspension from the force. When sports reporter Janice Edwards (Michelle Nicastro) arranges for shady but serious big time manager Lord Percy Babington (James Booth) to view their match with The Kremlin Krushers (Alexi Smirnoff & Jay S. York) and Percy decides to go with the Krushers all bets are off and it's time for these 'good guy' to become 'Bad guys'.

Enter Terrible Turk McGurk (Gene Le Bell) and his Lady wife Petal McGurk (Ruth Buzzi), Bad Guy markers extrodinar. Using all their talents these two attempt to turn Skip and Dave into the best bad guys in Wrestling history in time for the Tag-team world championship match with the Krushers. Of course, everything goes anything but smooth.

The plot is corny, the acting over the top, and the music is decidedly 80's. That said, this movie is just pure unadulterated FUN, FUN, FUN!

The wrestling scenes and training montages are a entertaining riot. The Striping scene in worth the price of 'admission'. The scene in the costume shop needed to be longer and a Blonde Adam is absolutely priceless!

And did I mention Sgt. Slaughter & Professor Toru Tanaka?

With great lines like:

"OH MY GOD THERE GOES THE REF!"

"Merciful father in Heaven"

"Take my pants off again and I'll kill you."

"Thanks Skip, first you get me suspended, then you get me to do a strip tease and then you rip off my pants and now I'm up here stuck in the middle of nowhere!"

"Huh, never knew dancing could be so dangerous"

"Yeah, no more fat old women in convertibles"

and

"We gotta save him. To the ropes!"

The cheese factor is 10 and you will want to watch it again!

Any who haven't seen this one yet...it is a MUST see!
