THIS JANUARY, A BUDDY COMEDY WITHOUT THE BUDDIES.
Two security guards (Martin Lawrence, Steve Zahn), who hate each other’s guts for good reason, team up to catch a violent gang of smugglers. Now, this is a concept as tired as it gets. A white guy, a black guy, they never stop bickering, there’s shootouts and car chases… you know what I’m talking about. The stars are fun to watch, even Lawrence whose character is very annoying, and you do get some bang for your buck, but there’s not enough laughs and it’s sad to see Eric Roberts once again wasting his talent.
2003-U.S. 88 min. Color. Directed by Dennis Dugan. Cast: Martin Lawrence (Earl Montgomery), Steve Zahn (Hank Rafferty), Colm Feore (Frank McDuff), Bill Duke, Eric Roberts, Timothy Busfield… Stephen Tobolowsky.
