Trivia

Originally titled "Black Sheep" until it was discovered that there was already a film with that title, Black Sheep (1996). That film starred David Spade and the late Chris Farley, who both co-starred with Chris Rock on Saturday Night Live (1975). Ironically, the new title "Bad Company," is also the name of a 1995 film, Bad Company (1995). See more »

Goofs

Entertaining but not great!
6 July 2002 | by (sweden) – See all my reviews

Chris Rock is hilarious in this film. Anthony Hopkins is good too.

It includes many funny scenes and the action is also good. But the plot it's nothing special at all and the film is not very bad but not very good either. If Chris Rock were not in it, it would be bad. I would rate it a 6/10
