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

Director Michael Bay didn't like the script and often engaged Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in discussions about how the dialogue and scenes could improve. He often allowed them to improvise while the camera were rolling. He secretly told Will to call Lawrence a bitch before the car-scene. The whole "two bitches in the sea" was improvised, as was Martin's comment when Téa Leoni called him gay. See more »

"Bad Boys" is an buddy cop action film loaded with comedy. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence have good chemistry on screen and deliver good preformances. The plot is simple, and is followed through until the movie's end (which is very action packed). Bay does well directing the picture and Jerry Bruckhiemer heads up another good film. 10/10. Can't wait for the sequel. It looks amazing; hopefully as good as, if not better than, the first.
