User Reviews

Half action, Half comedy, TOTALLY ENTERTAINING!
23 March 2003 | by Lethal_K_MMXSee all my reviews

Bulletproof is one of the funniest and action filled movies I have ever seen in a long time, and Damon Wayans and Adam Sandler are a great team, and James Caan is also good as the drug boss Frank Colton. The whole cast kept me laughing, and the action kept the adrenaline running.
