He has to rescue them and save New York city from an imminent nuclear terrorist act. Written by Mikey J. <mredding@ev1.net>

Trivia

Originally titled "Black Sheep", until it was discovered that there was already a film with that title, Black Sheep (1996). That film starred David Spade and the late Chris Farley, both of whom co-starred with Chris Rock on Saturday Night Live (1975). Ironically, the new title is also the name of Bad Company (1995).

Adrik Vas: Your friend is late.
Michael Turner: He'll be here.
Adrik Vas: Yeah, I *do* have other bidders.
Michael Turner: I personally vouch for this man.
Adrik Vas: Oh, well I trust you Michael. You see, each degree of separation comes with a degree of uncertainty.

Entertaining but not great!
6 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

Chris Rock is hilarious in this film. Anthony Hopkins is good too.

It includes many funny scenes and the action is also good. But the plot it's nothing special at all and the film is not very bad but not very good either. If Chris Rock were not in it, it would be bad. I would rate it a 6/10
