Did You Know?

Trivia

The spiky onscreen relationship between James Belushi and Tupac Shakur was helped offscreen by the fact that Shakur liked to nail his scenes in one or two takes, and was annoyed by Belushi preferring to do it in multiple takes. See more »

Goofs

Before Frank pulls up to Manny's for the first time, you can see a blue sandbag on the curb, marking the spot where Jim Belushi is to stop the car at the proper spot so as to be within the camera frame. See more »

Good Twists - Worth a Look
17 April 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Good movie....has a few twists and turns you don't expect. Both James Belushi & the late Tupac Shakur were well cast in the main roles - especially Belushi - this role being very different from his usual ones.

The only other two cast members that have some grunt in the movie are Lela Rochon and Dennis Quaid. James Earl Jones has an appearance - if only small - but for me I will never be able to disassociate him from the voice we have all come to know as Darth Vader.

Dennis Quaid however does some lime light stealing - but you'll just have to watch it to find out why! Overall good entertainment - may not be everyone's cup of tea - but had me engrossed. In a sense a typical good cops go wrong movie - but one that at least grabs you and sucks you in to watching it to find out what happens next.

I gave it a 7/10.
