A loyal and dedicated Hong Kong Inspector teams up with a reckless and loudmouthed L.A.P.D. detective to rescue the Chinese Consul's kidnapped daughter, while trying to arrest a dangerous crime lord along the way.
Marcus Burnett is a hen-pecked family man. Mike Lowry is a foot-loose and fancy free ladies' man. Both are Miami policemen, and both have 72 hours to reclaim a consignment of drugs stolen from under their station's nose. To complicate matters, in order to get the assistance of the sole witness to a murder, they have to pretend to be each other.Written by

The Australian free-to-air TV version is cut to achieve an 'M' rating so that the movie may be showed at an earlier 8:30 timeslot. Lines involving the word 'fuck' are either edited/cut or the scenes in which they take place are missing entirely. See more »
Terrible terrible terrible (oh cool, an explosion) terrible. If you have seen any of the Lethal Weapon movies, you already know 90% of the jokes and dialogue from Bad Boys. The twist is that Smith's character is some millionaire playboy who takes a job as a drug cop because of the excitement and the satisfaction of ridding the streets of scum. Like all of his other roles, Smith brings absolutely nothing to the part, and plays it just as stupidly as it is written and conceived. Martin Lawrence, on the other hand, has never been good or funny in anything he's every been in, ever, so no surprises from him.
Now they're making a Bad Boys II. Maybe I will take up doing crosswords or something, because movies just keep getting worse.
