Henry Rollins has, in his spoken word performances, recounted the circumstances under which he received his part in this film. He showed up for an audition for Armageddon (1998) unkempt, with a single page torn out of the script and in a really pissed-off mood. He proceeded to give a lousy audition after being ignored by Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer. He didn't get the part. However upon auditioning for Bad Boys II (2003), he threw caution to the wind and ended up landing the part almost by accident. See more »
In the shootout in the Haitian hideout, we clearly see the guy in the yellow t-shirt shot in the head. However, seconds later, we see him walking on set and crouching down, reflected in a mirror over Mike's left shoulder just as he's shooting the tear gas canister. See more »
Look, Mike. Calm down!
[before the shooting at the KKK rally]
Calm down? I'm calm! I'm calm... Whoaa! Whoa! I am way too unstable for that bullshit! Stop all the goddamn movement! Everybody stop moving!

An Action Packed Movie That'll Have You Laughing!!!
Well, if you need action or comedy, this is the movie for you. It was a perfect mix with Big Willy and Martin Lawrence.
It was a bit long. It felt like I watched 2 movies, but that's not a bad thing. The action was fast, but the realism of the movie was not believable. Way too many close calls, the way action movies usually are.
The comedy gets an A+ in my book. So far, this is the funniest movie I've seen of the year. There was A LOT of comedy, note that I stress the words, "a lot." I was laughing from start to finish. Very few lines were weak, but there not noticeable.
Overall, this is the perfect film if you want to sit back, watch some people die, and laugh your ass off. You didn't need to see the first one to understand the story, so don't worry. But I do advise you, it was a very gory movie. They showed a lot of disgusting parts, and I'm not talking about sex, I'm talking about gore.
