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 »

Adrik Vas: Your friend is late.
Michael Turner: He'll be here.
Adrik Vas: Yeah, I *do* have other bidders.
Michael Turner: I personally vouch for this man.
Adrik Vas: Oh, well I trust you Michael. You see, each degree of separation comes with a degree of uncertainty.

Not Bad Company
9 June 2002 | by (Van Buren, Arkansas) – See all my reviews

After reading so many negative reviews of this movie, I expected the worst and almost didn't see it. But I was in the mood for a movie and it was the only one showing that I hadn't already seen that was even remotely of interest to me. To my surprise I enjoyed the movie and where I think so many critics went wrong was to view this movie as a comedy, which it really isn't, except for a few humorous moments as might be expected in any such action movie. And Anthony Hopkins actually played his role the way it should have been played. It was not a role calling for a wild comic genius but one calling for a very serious-minded professional who is involved in trying to train a novice in just a few days for a deadly game involving a nuke. Chris Rock also played his role as it should have been played and restrained himself from his usual antics, as in "Lethal Weapon 4." Not a great movie but much better than the awful "The Sum Of All Fears."
