Danny and Ray are two street wise cops in Chicago. When they are almost killed on a case, they are forced to take a vacation by their captain. Key West offers a substantial change over frozen Chicago. They decide to quit and open a bar in Key West. Upon returning, they find that Julio, the drug dealer who nearly killed them has made bail and is trying to complete a giant drug deal. They decide to complete their case against Julio before quitting, but then begin being careful. Their effectiveness drops as they find they can't operate the way they did before if they don't have the edge of a long time commitment.Written by

In several outdoor scenes, snow is simulated with foam. See more »
The film takes place around the Christmas season, as suggested by the 'snow' seen in all of the street scenes. However, it is painfully obvious the snow is nothing more than soap bubbles that has been haphazardly blown across the street, vehicles, and various structures. The most glaring example of this 'fake snow' effect is when the two lead actors go to Aunt Rose's funeral. The trees and headstones look like they've suffered a bubble bath fight, rather than a typical Chicago snowstorm. See more »
Very funny cop/buddy movie that owes a lot to the inspired teaming of Gregory Hines and Billy Crystal. The script may not be much, but it has enough in it to keep the audience interested, while director Peter Hyams keeps the action and, more importantly, the comedy, rolling at a good pace. For it is the comedy that makes this picture.
Hines and Crystal are in great form. They play off each other wonderfully, and their comic timing is perfect as they deliver some hilarious lines. Situation after situation will have you in stitches in this film. Writers Gary De Vore and Jimmy Huston certainly have a sharp sense of humour.
