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 »

One of the best Martin Lawrence Action/Comedy movies!
Starring: Martin Lawrence, Dave Chappelle and Luke Wilson
Another great Action/Comedy buddy movie! The movie is about a bank robber named Miles Logan (Martin Lawrence) who steals a crafty jewel and then hides it in a construction site where his $20 Million heist went awry. Now that he is out of jail, he wants to get the loot back! But the problem was that the place where he hid it was now the new Los Angeles Police Station. So Miles goes in as a member of the LAPD and works with Carlson (Luke Wilson) a rookie at the LAPD. So now Miles gives up being a thief and becomes a detective. One of my most favorite Martin Lawrence movies ever! One of my favorite parts was when Miles was disguising as a wacky pizza delivery man. This is one of the most successful Martin Lawrence movies plus another one of the best movies of 1999! One of the best Martin Lawrence movies ever!
