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

At the beginning of the movie, Marcus (Martin Lawrence) comments that he wouldn't get food from Denny's because he "don't like the way we been treated." In the 90s, Denny's settled a number of lawsuits that accused the staff of racism. See more »
In the final shoot out, one of the bad guys walks into an aircraft fuselage and starts shooting through a door. The two windows to his left are taped over with metal foil. The first two windows to his right are also covered over in white. Cut to a shot of the return fire. Then cut back to the bad guy. Now the two windows to his left are without any foil, and the first windows to his right is also no longer covered over in white. See more »
Look, now I ain't no Wesley Snipes! I just hang out with stupid ass friends, that drive stupid ass cars, that attract a lot of mother fuckin' attention!
You know what, I need to jump over this car and smack you in your peasy ass head that's what I need to do.
Well, you know what you're arguin' over a mother fuckin' french fry.
It's not about the french fry, it's about your lack of respect for other people's property!
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey!
Shut the fuck up!

The 'buddy comedy' genre is fairly well-known, there have been plenty of them, all of them primarily based on the basic idea of having two main characters who are, well, buddies; they act like friends to each other, they get in fights, they help each other out, they compliment each other. It's a fairly easy genre to master, and an easy way to make a good movie. This is one of the best examples, since Smith and Lawrence really do compliment each other so well; Smith's the sleek, cool one who is popular with the ladies, while Lawrence is often nervous, and pretty much a direct opposite of Smith. They have pretty good on-screen chemistry, too; you believe that these are good friends and partners. My only real problem with the film is the way the comedy almost all is generated by stereotypes, and, worse, the age-old complications that arise from certain situations. I think that's a little unoriginal, but, hey, that's the only complaint about it, and the film does have some very entertaining comedy parts. The plot is pretty good, it keeps the film going and supplies every single scene with comedy, action, or both. It takes off immediately, and keeps a good pace throughout the 2 hour duration. The acting is all pretty good. The characters are well-written, well, for stereotypes at least(because, lets face it; they are). The comedy is well-done and often made me laugh out loud, and, believe me, I am not, in any way, shape or form, a Will Smith fan. The action was well-done too, intense and exciting. The film, all in all, was pretty good, very entertaining. For a buddy comedy, it's good. For an action comedy, it's good too. I recommend it to all fans of action comedies, and buddy comedies. 7/10
