Two corrupt cops murder an undercover DEA agent by mistake, and frantically try to cover their tracks by framing a homeless man for the crime. That involves juggling evidence, coaching witnesses, and improvising to keep their desperate scheme from unraveling.Written by
The spiky onscreen relationship between Jim Belushi and Tupac Shakur was helped offscreen by the fact that Shakur liked to nail his scenes in one or two takes, and was annoyed by Belushi preferring to do it in multiple takes. See more »
When Det. Frank Divinci talks to Joe for the first time about the crime in the car we can clearly see the camera in the reflection of the window. As the scene progress the camera zooms in and a head can be seen next to the camera. See more »
The only difference between a witness and a liar is this: One knows what he's doing at all times; the other has no clue.

Tupac Shakur's earlier posthumous film from 1997, Gridlock'd, still had a 1996 copyright date in the credits. However, this film lists its year of production in the credits as being 1997, despite many viewers already knowing beforehand that Tupac Shakur was not alive in 1997. See more »

Good Twists - Worth a Look
Good movie....has a few twists and turns you don't expect. Both James Belushi & the late Tupac Shakur were well cast in the main roles - especially Belushi - this role being very different from his usual ones.
The only other two cast members that have some grunt in the movie are Lela Rochon and Dennis Quaid. James Earl Jones has an appearance - if only small - but for me I will never be able to disassociate him from the voice we have all come to know as Darth Vader.
Dennis Quaid however does some lime light stealing - but you'll just have to watch it to find out why! Overall good entertainment - may not be everyone's cup of tea - but had me engrossed. In a sense a typical good cops go wrong movie - but one that at least grabs you and sucks you in to watching it to find out what happens next.
I gave it a 7/10.
