Movie Info

In Armed and Dangerous, John Candy plays a cop who has been kicked off the force on a trumped up charge. Eugene Levy costars as a disbarred lawyer. The two outcasts take low-paying jobs as security officers at a company controlled by mob boss Robert Loggia. In their own stumblebum fashion, Candy and Levy uncover a smuggling operation masterminded by Loggia. Meg Ryan also shows up in an early leading role. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Silly doings with Candy and Levy as inept security guards.

It may not be armed, but it's dangerous alright.

How could two amazingly FUNNY guys spend so much effort on a movie so bereft of laughs? Candy and Levy deserve much better, and they moved on to it after this junkpile.

Audience Reviews for Armed and Dangerous

Average John Candy & Eugence Levy comedy movie, not much funny, but I was affecting on my favourite actress, Meg Ryan.

Super Reviewer

John Candy and Eugene Levy are Armed and Dangerous in this quirky '80s buddy comedy. The story follows a disgraced ex-cop and an incompetent lawyer who become armed security guards that accidentally stubble across a major criminal operation. The plot's fairly thin and the characters are pretty formulaic. But Candy and Levy have good chemistry, and they work well with this type of screwball humor. Despite the light story, Armed and Dangerous works as a silly, cornballish comedy and it delivers some good laughs.
