Earl and Hank have only one thing in common: they're both L.A.P.D. rejects. One just got kicked out, the other can't even get in. After confronting each other on opposite sides of the law during a traffic stop that escalates out of control, these two luckless individuals end up partnered as lowly security guards. Despite being damned to the lowest rung of the law enforcement ladder, Earl and Hank uncover a sophisticated smuggling operation led by Nash and his band of thugs. When Earl and Hank get their hands on some hot property, they go on the run from, first the bad guys, then the L.A.P.D.--led by Lt. Washington and Detective McDuff. What these two unlikely partners do to law enforcement is a crime, but they just might save the day. That is, if they don't kill each other first.Written by

I know this sounds weird, but I was offended as a white person
All Martin Lawerence does is complain about white people in the film. Just giving them the back hand. I was honestly offended. We had to watch this in our communications class. Seeing how stereotypes are. The teacher said "And we laugh at what some consider offensive". Duh! I mean I've heard the white jokes before, don't get me wrong. Sometimes they're funny. Like Chris Tucker. He has fun with it. But he doesn't' go overboard with it. Martin Lawerence does on the other hand. The movie is OK. But I wouldn't watch it again. It is a total rip off of Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, and Rush Hour. Stay away if you loved those films.
