According to Dave Chappelle on The Oprah Winfrey Show (1986), a scene was written during filming in which his character was to wear a dress while disguised as a prostitute. Chappelle adamantly refused. The writers complained to the producers who then tried to convince Chappelle to do the scene but he still refused. According to Chappelle, he felt that it was part of a disturbing trend in which African-American men wear dresses in films. See more »

This movie really delivers in the laughter department and succeeds as a vehicle for star Martin Lawrence. In the film, Lawrence plays a thief who steals a diamond and manages to hide it in a building structure before being caught and sent to prison for two years. Upon his release, he finds that the building is now a police station, and he has to impersonate a cop to get in and claim his prize. That is where the real fun stuff begins.
