John C. McGinley
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

Stupid characters in bad buddy duo with ugly racist Martin Lawrence
Hank Rafferty (Steve Zahn) and Charlie Reed (Timothy Busfield) are LAPD officers who responded to an alarm. Charlie is killed right in front of helpless Hank. He is forbidden to investigate the robbery. Earl Montgomery (Martin Lawrence) is a smart-mouthed recruit who gets kicked out. He locked himself out of his car and Hank confronts him. A bumble bee cause a media sensation of another police beating. Hank is fired and prosecuted. After time in the state pen, all Hank could get is lowly security guard job. When a similar break-in happens, Hank investigates and finds the same bad guys led by Nash (Eric Roberts). Earl works as the security guard in the building and the unlikely duo goes after the bad guys.
This is not a particularly good way to build a good buddy cop duo. Basically everybody is an idiot. The only hope is that everybody is a corrupt villain. Martin Lawrence is horribly horrendously unlikeable racist. None of his antics are funny. It's the same old character that he does except more annoying. This is just bad.
