Martin Lawrence was in his funny role :D

This movie shows how Martin Lawrence is so raciest. He's stand-up is the same way. Never really liked the guy. Hate this movie because of that.

Just a laugh a minute, nothing serious no real story line.

Stupid mismatched partner action/comedy that is low on action, low on comedy, but high on stupidity. Very lazy filmmaking.

Martin Lawrence wants to be a cop, but is kicked out of the academy when he blows up a car. Steve Zahn is put in jail when he is attempting to catch a bee but is filmed to look like he is beating Lawrence. He gets a job as a security guard and one day a break in occurs and Zahn happens to respond. That leads them onto a search of a case where they are the only ones who can catch the bad guys. It has its moments, but not quite enough to make it fully enjoyable. Better than expected, but not quite good, but close

Laughter all the way as the American dreams come collapsing down around the head of one very silly cop. Stunts are well directed and filmed making the timing it just perfect for the actors to bring fun to the screen. The raciest misunderstanding makes for jolly comedy that has one laughing all over the floor. Nibbles: Battered Sausage and chips.

LAPD reject and major troublemaker Earl (Martin Lawrence) got L.A. cop Hank (Steve Zahn) kicked off the force for brutality. Now, these two guys who can't stand each other, are stuck working together as lowly security guards. And they're playing cops to bring down a smuggling ring-if they can stay alive and stay one step ahead of the real cops.
also stars Colm Fecre, Bill Dukes, Eric Roberts, Timothy Busfield, Robinne Lee, Matt McCoy and Brett Cullen.
directed by Dennis Dugan.

I watched this movie by accident at HBO. quite good and entertaining but if you a guy who worried about details like me, this movie is not for you.

"Earl Montgomery" (Martin Lawrence) accuses LAPD officer "Hank Rafferty" (Steve Zahn) of police brutality. Even though his alleged injuries actually resulted in a bee sting.
"Rafferty" spends six months for the crime he did not commit and accidentally bumps into "Montgomery" while investigating the murder of his partner -- even though he has been kicked off the force. And to make things worse, he works as a security guard for the same security company as "Montgomery".
The two reluctantly team-up to chase what turns out to be smugglers, lead by a man simply known as "Kane" (Eric Roberts).
This movie only produces a few chuckles, and even fewer laughs. The majority of the jokes are racially motivated, and may be offensive by some. I found the physical humor more funny in fact.
I did not find Lawrence and Zahn a perfect on-screen duo. Their chemistry appeared a bit forced at times. They also didn't seem too believable when doing the dialogue.
Personally, I did not think either Zahn or Lawrence were all that funny. I was really annoyed by Lawrence's catchphrase for this movie, mostly because it butchers the English language.
Another problem with this film was the lack of character development on many key supporting characters. I especially did not like the way the villains were developed. Roberts will never get out of his sister's shadow if he continues to accept roles like this.
The music were mostly current hip hop. Because I do not listen to that particular genre, I couldn't tell you many of the performers even if I saw their name in the closing credits.
There is some pretty good action in this movie. However, the action is pretty much typical, and nothing stands out as something spectacular and memorable.
If you like Lawrence (I don't believe I've seen Zahn before), then you would like this. But, if you are easily offended by racially motivated jokes, then this one is one to skip over. I would not suggest this for any "Must See" list, nor would I see this for a second time.

An innocent racial joke here and there is funny once in a while, but not when you're bombarded with one every two minutes.

Blah. Would have rather stood in line at the DOT than spent time watching this garbage.

I didn't know that I was going to like, it was kind of good, after all the craps that Martin lawrence played as a cop, this is defenitly the best, Steve Zahn is funny in this movie, and the movie is very funny and cool, not very good, but it's an entartaining and recommended movie.

I think Martin Lawrence has done better. And what's with Eric Roberts?
January 15, 2013
A predictable buddy action/comedy movie that has been done a hundred times before. That being said, this isn't terrible and is somewhat enjoyable. As always, Martin Lawrence provides most of the laughs. This film was released in 2003, but feels more like 1995. Although the story is generic and forgettable, this movie does provide some entertainment. 3 stars.

Reminded me of Blue Streak.

martin lawrence: no holds barred. completely off script the entire time and obviously high the majority of the film. i especially loved the corny 90's hip hop/break dancing music even thought this movie was made in 2003.
