When Bad Boys was filmed, at least two scenes had two alternate versions -- both revolving around the same thing. When Tweety and Viking are giving O'Brien his work assignment, the original theatrical version had him on "shit house." The television version, though used the alternate take which has him on "latrine patrol." The same was done when Paco gets into the prison and O'Brien gives him "shit house" in the theatrical version, but in the television version again, the alternate take of "latrine patrol" is used.

This film has to be one of the best youth crime dramas around. Sean Penn delivers a strong performance as a troubled youth, without the will but the courage to change his ways. Ally Sheedy also delivers a strong performance as the sole light in Penn's insane lifestyle. Esai Morales delivers a strong performance as a youth who has takes the wrong roads in life. Buckle up, and get ready for an emotional ride by some talented actors/writers/director in this movie.
