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 original title for this movie was Bulletproof Hearts, and was written for Dana Carvey and Jon Lovitz because they were very popular based on their Saturday Night Live (1975) work. But producer Don Simpson arranged a trip for himself and the actors to Las Vegas to celebrate their upcoming work, and Carvey was so horrified by the notoriously wild Simpson that he withdrew from the project altogether, sending the film into turnaround and leading the rights to go from Disney to Columbia.

The Porsche features leather seats. In the first scene, it's clear that the car has the option which embosses the Porsche logo on the headrest. The embossing disappears and reappears throughout the movie. See more »
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.
