Bad Boys (1995)


Movie Review

Directed by: Michael Bay

Starring: Will Smith and Martin Lawrence

Of all people, the cops got robbed big time.  A French drug kingpin named Fouchet (Tchéky Karyo) organizes a heist in which $100 million of heroin is stolen from the Miami-Dade Police Department.  Detectives Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) and Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) of the narcotics division are tasked with retrieving the stolen drugs.  Meanwhile, Fouchet kills escort Max Logan, one of Lowrey’s ex-girlfriends.  The only witness to the murder is her best friend Julie Mott (Téa Leoni).  Burnett and Lowrey are also tasked with protecting this witness and leveraging her knowledge to catch Fouchet and retrieve the drugs.  In Michael Bay’s directorial debut, he gives us a slick action comedy pairing two of television’s biggest stars of the 90s in Martin Lawrence and Will Smith.  Unlike The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Martin, Smith and Lawrence have a license to kill and are totally uncensored.  Bad Boys is a raunchy, action-packed flick with lots of laughs. Sit back and enjoy this flick when you get a chance.  Have some wine coolers and some Skittles (you’ll get this once you’ve seen the movie).
