Earl and Hank have only one thing in common: they're both L.A.P.D. rejects. One just got kicked out, the other can't even get in. After confronting each other on opposite sides of the law during a traffic stop that escalates out of control, these two luckless individuals end up partnered as lowly security guards. Despite being damned to the lowest rung of the law enforcement ladder, Earl and Hank uncover a sophisticated smuggling operation led by Nash and his band of thugs. When Earl and Hank get their hands on some hot property, they go on the run from, first the bad guys, then the L.A.P.D.--led by Lt. Washington and Detective McDuff. What these two unlikely partners do to law enforcement is a crime, but they just might save the day. That is, if they don't kill each other first. Written by

I thought this was pretty good stuff. If a movie makes you feel uptight then perhaps you should pick another genre besides comedy. It wasn't packaged as serious social commentary. What did you expect?
After putting in 60+ stressfull work hours over this last week, it was kind of nice to put my brain in neutral for a while. Laughter is good for the soul. I didn't want a movie that required a great of thought. Comedies tend to be like that.
So just relax a bit people.
(Larry,Mo,Curly,Joe and Shemp were wasted by critics of the day, and yet their work stands a generation later as classics. Go figure.)
