Storyline

Miami is being flooded with ecstasy that's coming from Cuba through drug lord Johnny Tapia. Detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett are on the case, and are determined to bring the man to justice. Additional drama is provided by friction with the DEA, which counts Marcus' younger sister Sydney among its agents, and from Marcus possibly transferring out of the department, leaving Mike without his longtime partner.

Trivia

Goofs

During the shootout at the Haitian house, Mike simultaneously ejects the magazines from both Glocks he's using. As the magazines fall free of his handguns' magazine wells, a live round also appears to fall (following the magazine) from the weapon in his right hand. Since both handguns appear to be in battery at the time (and not actually empty, in which case the slides would be locked back), there should be no loose round falling from the weapon. Apparently that doesn't matter, though, because immediately after the next cut he's already bangin' away at the bad guys without any evidence of a reload. See more »

Mike Lowery: Hey, it got rough. We got caught up in the moment, shit got crazy. You know how I get.
Marcus Burnett: When you popped me from behind I think you damaged some nerves.

Loads of fun ---7/10
21 July 2003 | by Sfpsycho415See all my reviews

This was a really fun movie to watch. It has some intense action sequences. Actually, a lot of intense action sequences. The shooting never stops and the explosions keep on coming. Martin Lawrence and Will Smith are hysterical, again. And Joe Pantoliano makes every movie better. The two funniest scenes are when Burnett and Lowery are scaring the hell out of Burnett's daughter's date and after the chase scene with the dead bodies and Captain Howard goes off on the two. Absolutely hilarious! My only gripe is that it seemed that the writers were running low on material and resorted to gross-out humor like rats having sex and corpses losing their heads. Not funny. Otherwise it was very funny, due to the amazing chemistry between the two leads. I still prefer the original Bad Boys, but this is still a great time at the movies. 7/10
