Bad Boys


badboysThe Miami Vice concept survives even without Michael Mann, it would seem. Michael Bay, in his directing debut, makes good use of the sun-drenched Miami scenery and guarantees that the action scenes are up to par in his buddy-buddy movie. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are worth a look as the bad boy cops, but their hunt for stolen drugs is not as amusing as the part where they are forced to switch identities to keep a witness (Téa Leoni) to murder from bailing out on them. The movie was a hit, but it’s very familiar and doesn’t know when to call it a day. 

1995-U.S. 126 min. Color. Directed by Michael Bay. Cast: Martin Lawrence (Marcus Burnett), Will Smith (Mike Lowrey), Téa Leoni (Julie Mott), Theresa Randle, Tchéky Karyo, Marg Helgenberger… Joe Pantoliano.

Trivia: Followed by two sequels, starting with Bad Boys II (2003).

Quote: “You know, you drive almost slow enough to drive Miss Daisy.” (Lawrence to Smith)
