Quotes

Bookie: ...So what can you do to assure me of your good intentions?
Detective Rodriguez: I can make your life miserable, that's what I can do.
Bookie: Look at me. Am I attractive? Do I have a wife and five kids? Have I got a job at IBM and a swanky bachelor pad? NO, NO, AND NO! I loan big money to people like you who can't control their urge to blow it all gambling; Then I stay awake half the night trying to convince them that I have needs, too... The point of which is, I ALREADY HAVE A MISERABLE LIFE! So don't threaten me, you ...

Can these two do anything right?
1 June 2000 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is not too bad, once you get past the fact that it stars TuPac Shakur... I mean, after Poetic Justice, did anybody think he could act? I sure didn't. He was a great artist, but acting wasn't his forte. Actually, to be honest, I didn't expect great things after seeing Poetic Justice, but he wasn't too bad in this movie after all.

However, when watching this movie, the question I kept asking myself was, "How can these two fools make this situation any worse?" In fact, I think that's what makes this film work. I spent most of my time waiting to see what kind of crazy coincidence would pop up next. The film certainly doesn't disappoint if you like plot twists, even if you can see them a mile away.

Overall, this is a pretty good drama about corrupt cops. I recommend it for a Saturday afternoon when there's nothing fantastic on TV, or for a Sunday if you aren't a football or racing fanatic. Just don't waste your money on it for a Friday night, you should be watching new releases on Fridays.

My Rating: 8/10
