A mindnumbing waste of time
29 June 1999 | by (az) – See all my reviews

Not only was this a bad action movie, but it was a bad Adam Sandler movie (Hey, that's a little bit redundant, isn't it?) But what I really wondered is why James Caan wasted his time in it. Why would a great actor who played in the Godfather movies want to embarrass himself in such trash?

Sandler plays a conman who unknowingly befriends a cop, played by Damon Waynes. When Sandler reveals that he knows the kingpin behind a massive heroin ring, he leads Waynes to the location, Sandler finds out that Waynes is going undercover as a cop, and shoots him in the head (by accident). Nevertheless, he recovers. To make it so the movie's plot goes on par with the title, they put a metal plate on the wound. "Bulletproof" Get it? Ooh, that's so clever and funny! My sides are splitting.

I won't tell what happens from there. If you're brave enough to tolerate mental pain from sheer stupidity, you'd see it for yourself. This movie wasn't only a rip-off of several other action movies, but the jokes were unfunny and offensive, many of them being sexist, homophobic, or racist.
