Starring Martin Lawrence, Steve Zahn
Source of story An original screenplay
Elevator Pitch A police officer is jailed for attacking a black man, and after his release he joins a security firm, only to find that he must join his former victim in a chase across the country after a criminal gang. Will they get over their dislike for each other so that they can work together?
Content Lots of car chases and shoot outs mostly with machine guns, in more and more unusual environments, including one in a lemonade factory. A young woman is handcuffed to a pipe in her underwear as part of a sex game, but is left there (I worried about her).
A View Maybe the only good thing about the film was the length at one hour and thirty minutes. It was full of unfunny racial jokes on the basis that white people think all black people are criminals. I smiled once!
