Ray Tango and Gabriel Cash are narcotics detectives who, while both being extremely successful, can't stand each other. Crime Lord Yves Perret, furious at the loss of income that Tango and Cash have caused him, frames the two for murder. Caught with the murder weapon on the scene of the crime, the two have alibi. Thrown into prison with most of the criminals they helped convict, it appears that they are going to have to trust each other if they are to clear their names and catch the evil Perret. Written by

During the raid on Perret's compound, Cash is in the stairwell firing an automatic weapon that appears to shoot bullet holes in the wall of the stairwell. The bullet holes appear in different amounts and patterns between shots. Also, Tango has an automatic weapon and fires it right at the lower side of an office desk he has dived to for cover. The muzzle flash is clearly reflected on the side of the desk surface, yet no bullet hole damage occurs to the desk. See more »
Good action/cop movie with two Hollywood heavyweights.
Tango & Cash isn't the best movie alive but it provides so much action and thrill scenes that you certainly will enjoy if your in to that kind of thing. This movie also has a ready supply of hilarious one-liners which makes many scenes appear funny so a mixture of laughter is present with all the action. A movie with two Hollywood heavyweights such as Stallone and Russell must be liked by any movie fan because veterans like these always can make a movie interesting. Both are rival cops who become buddies Ray Tango and Gabe Cash these rival L.A. policemen have one thing in common: each thinks he is best. You frame these two for a crime and the two matched get ready to explode. The Stallone character of Ray Tango is a stylish cop who thinks things out on the other hand Kurt Russell's Gabe Cash is a reckless blue-collar type both become equally the same and break out of prison together then they go after the ruthless crimelord (Jack Palance) who set them up. The beautiful Teri Hatcher is very sexy in this film like that's a surprise! Teri plays the sister of the Stallone character who wants to become romantically involved with the Russell character. Poor Teri she once again suffers from being tied up and gagged. Teri is held hostage in the final minutes of the movie before being rescued by Tango & Cash, if you remember from " Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" in several episodes Teri is either tied up and gagged or has her mouth taped and in other shows Teri has this happen and the same is in Tango & Cash, Teri must get upset of having to do so many scenes in which she is tied up and gagged or has her mouth taped. Tango& Cash in my opinion is better than the Lethal Weapon movies and with great performances of Stallone, Russell, Palance, and Hatcher and the fact that this movie moves fast and is funny, smart and tough it becomes a great pleasure movie.
