Audience Reviews for Armed and Dangerous

  • Jan 27, 2013
    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.
