Distinguished by a sharp, witty dialogue between its two cop protagonists, Ray and Danny (Gregory Hines and Billy Crystal), this entertaining crime drama is well worth a visit. Ray and Danny are nearly blown away by super bad guy Julio (Jimmy Smits), and their boss is peeved at them as usual.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Has all the logic and transitional ease of a Pokémon-style card game played by 5-year-olds who don't understand the rules, so they make up their own as they go."
‑ Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
"Relentlessly competent in a TBS Saturday afternoon kind of way."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"A breezily entertaining buddy-cop movie with too much cutesy shtick for its own good. Gregory Hines is OK, but Billy Crystal is never believable as a Chicago cop."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"Crystal and Hines are a great double act. Laughs aplenty."
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Pre-Lethal Weapon mid-80s buddy flick before"
‑ Kevin Fiddler, Henderson Home News (Henderson, NV)
"The most appealing thing about this movie is the charisma and good humour delivered by the two leads."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
