Storyline

Through an improbable series of events and an impossibly bungled supermarket hold-up, down on their luck con men Matt and Wilbur find themselves working with the Miami police force. As they patrol the streets of the city, their main job becomes trying to break the hold of the city's street gangs, including one group of teens in old movie-gangster style clothes, led by a kid named Geronimo who dresses in full Indian warrior regalia. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

The Best and The Worst
28 December 2019 | by drb-27517See all my reviews

Ok, John Williams didn't do the soundtrack. Not even close. Cheesy music, cheesy humor, but I couldn't stop watching it. *sigh* I've seen it twice... And I enjoyed it both times. I'm not sure what it is about this movie, but at some point in the future, I'll watch it again.

Two scammers that become police officers end up being on the right side of the law. That's it in a nutshell. I still don't know why I like it.But I do.
