Storyline

Marcus Burnett is a hen-pecked family man. Mike Lowry is a foot-loose and fancy free ladies' man. Both are Miami policemen, and both have 72 hours to reclaim a consignment of drugs stolen from under their station's nose. To complicate matters, in order to get the assistance of the sole witness to a murder, they have to pretend to be each other. Written by James Hastie <jdh1000@cus.cam.ac.uk>

Not Oscar award material but damn entertaining
14 September 2019 | by rtifakSee all my reviews

Average rating is 6.9? What do people expect? This is one of the most entertaining cop movies ever along with Training Day and Enof of watch. I'm so disappointed in the people who gave poor ratings. Action and comedy are adeqately packed in a 2 hour film. Although It was made in 1995, it is still stylish. You wouldn't feel it's outdated a bit. And, Porsche 964 turbo gets me so excited every time i watch this.
