It remains one of the better action-comedy buddy pictures you'll find.

One of the first buddy action movies, 48 Hrs. laid the ground work for the sub-genre that was at its best during the 1980's.

The movie's story is nothing to write home about. It's pretty routine. What makes the movie special is how it's made. Nolte and Murphy are good, and their dialogue is good, too -- quirky and funny.
