Did You Know?

Trivia

When Marcus shows his badge to the exterminators in order to commandeer some of their equipment so they can get into Tapia's mother's house, if you freeze the picture you can read Marcus' badge clearly. He is a Lieutenant with the Miami Police Department. In the original Bad Boys (1995), when Marcus holds his badge up to the peephole for Julie to look at, you can see it says "Sergeant", so clearly, in the intervening eight years, Marcus was promoted.

Goofs

In the KKK shootout at the beginning of the movie, as soon as Marcus is taken hostage, the hostage-taker cocks the hammer of his revolver while putting the muzzle to Lawrence's head. In the next shot of the revolver, the hammer is not cocked anymore. See more »

Bad Boys is Bad Ass (Retort to "bad is the right word for title")
22 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

I think us movie buffs sometimes forget that not all movies are made to have some sort of under lying message that can or will change our lives. That's why it pains me to see some users give this film a bad review because "the dialog is weak" or "the scenery isn't vibrant" or something along those lines. This is not a stab or an insult to you, but what I'm saying is; sometimes movies are made with one intended purpose... ENTERTAINMENT! I could careless if this film had poor actors, poor script, poor lighting, that doesn't matter when you watch an action film. This movie delivers your monies worth too, in my opinion Will Smith and Martin Larwence make such a great team that part of the fun is just watching these two get into it from time to time. And with Michael Bay directing, you know you're going to get some good action scenes. Let's face it, Bad Boys II has one of the best car chase scenes ion recent history, it dominates the dismal over played chase in Matrix Reloaded which was the other big summer sequel of that year. I think all that needs to be said here in a retort is the movie is an action movie ans needs to be looked at as an action movie. To hell with the elements that the Academy looks at, appreciate the film for all the stuff that blows up and the laughs the cast can bring you to.
