Marcus Burnett is a hen-pecked family man. Mike Lowry is a foot-loose and fancy free ladies' man. Both are Miami policemen, and both have 72 hours to reclaim a consignment of drugs stolen from under their station's nose. To complicate matters, in order to get the assistance of the sole witness to a murder, they have to pretend to be each other. Written by

The film's production was extremely grueling for Michael Bay due to script problems (Bay would later call the screenplay a "piece of shit") and budget limits that often meant Bay would get only a single day to shoot action sequences that would have taken four days of work on more lavishly-funded projects. Bay sacrificed part of his salary so a key sequence during the film's climax wasn't eliminated. See more »

I don't eat flesh.
That's flesh that you're shoveling into your mouth. You know, that was, like, a living, breathing creature. You know, it probably had a name.
It's just bologna. My bologna has a first name.

Detectives Will Smith and Martin Lawrence have three days to find $100 million worth of heroin from a crazed drug-dealer in Miami in this fast-paced and comedy/action thriller. The witness to a murder (Tea Leoni) of one of Smith's best friends is also along for the frantic ride that is fun, clever and highly entertaining. Watch for then-NBA star John Salley in a great cameo as an imprisoned computer hacker. A rare winner from a sometimes trivial cinematic genre. 4 stars out of 5.
