When Keats and Moses are jumping from the plane as it falls over the side of the cliff, you can very clearly see that the two men jumping are not the actors, but instead their stunt doubles. To make it even more glaring, Damon Wayons' character is speaking but his stunt double's mouth is not moving. See more »

Not funny nor exciting.
14 June 1999 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

I think Bulletproof may be a better movie than Billy Madison, but outside that it's the worst Adam Sandler movie yet. First there are quite a few scenes of dumb dialogue none of which are funny. And second this movie has some bad action sequences. In the end this movie can't seem to make it's mind if it's an action movie or a comedy and who really cares. *1/2 out of **** for Bulletproof!
