Martin Lawrence is one of my favorite comedian/actors. I love his facial expressions and off the cuff humor.
Steve Zahn plays a street cop whose partner was killed by vicious criminals. He encounters Lawrence (who has flunked out of the police academy) trying to get into his car after locking the keys inside.
Lawrence eggs him on to the point that he wants to arrest him. In the process, there is a nasty bumblebee that starts attacking. Zahn tries to swat the bee with his baton, but is filmed out of context and appears to be beating Lawrence on the street.
He is fired from the police force and sent to prison. Upon his release, he runs into Lawrence once again, but this time, the two are both private security guards. They become embroiled in a nefarious plot in which they try to capture a group of seasoned criminals.
The movie is a laugh-a-minute where their investigation leads them into sticky situations In the end, they become friends and partners. Zahn and Lawrence give a great performance filled with zany antics and great interplay.
