3-0 out of 5 stars "Lawrence and Smith Are The Bad Boys of Comedy"
Hilariously enjoyable as any black comedy and full of fast paced action, "Bad Boys," as a 'slick flick,' stars Martin Lawrence as Marcus Burnett and Will Smith as Mike Lowrey playing two cops who fall on to the trail of millions of dollars of Heroin stolen by a criminal mastermind named Fouchet (Tcheky Karyo) and try to recover it as well as rescue Julie Mott (Tea Leoni) who is also involved. Personal matters appear to Marcus Burnett who is obsessed with getting "quality time" with his wife Theresa (Theresa Randle) and almost loses his marriage when he is forced to switch names and use Mike Lowrey in front of Julie. The comedy works unmistakeably well, however, the only mistakes I find in here are the heavy profanity and the violence used. But I keep saying this to myself, how can you pardon the profanity if it works well with the script? Oh well. Don Simpson-Jerry Bruckheimer Films/Columbia Pictures, 1995, Rated R for intense violent action and persuasive strong language.

5-0 out of 5 stars The first film in hopefully a trilogy and bruckheimer's best
Don Simpson and legendary action producer Jerry Bruckheimer who almost surpasses Joel Silver in what he put's on the screen,
and at this time first time director Michael Bay who also helmed
the much bigger and from the looks badder sequel Bad Boys 2.Get's
down and dirty for Bad Boys the first flim of this series wich
teams Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.100 million in confiscated
heroin has been hijacked from Miami Police the pride bust of DEA
and Narc agent's Mike Lowry(Will Smith)who is a stylish single
and full of money and his partner Marcus Burnett(Martin Lawrence)
,a family man who want's quality family time could not be any more
oppisite , but if they don't work together to find out about the
whereabouts of the missing heroin it will shut down the narcotics
of the Miami Police Department but when a drug kingpin played by
Tcheky Karyo kills a freind of Mike Lowry's with a witness spying
on the murder it becomes personal for Mike.But they must do all
they can to protect Julie(Tea Leoni) before she is killed by the
kingpins henchmen even if Mike Lowry and Marcus Burnett trade
places to protect her but they will also have to fight a drug war
in order for them to recover the stolen drugs and save Julie's life.

An explosive first entry in the series in hopfully a trilogy wich would be very weird on Bruckheimer's part of taking the
advantage of making his first trilogy.Explosive action , car
chases , unbeleivable stunts and the like wise teaming of Will
Smith and Martin Lawrence who without there chemistry added to
the film would be no sequel and just and ordinary action film
but there Mel Gibson and Danny Glover like appeal makes this film set afire as one of the best films Bruckheimer has made
Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer would only team one more
time for The Rock before Simpson's untimely death , the highly
anticipated bigger and badder sequel is due out this friday
an awsome action film.

I love this movie. It is funny and action-packed. I just wish two could have copied the same formula. It had too much action. It made me dizzy.

I have never seen this movie so it will get 4 stars need to get my boycott across to show this point

4-0 out of 5 stars Something Old, Somthing New
By the mid-nineties, the buddy cop action flick was not a new idea. Starting with 48 Hours and continuing with movies like Beverly Hills Cop and Lethal Weapon, the "cat and dog in a barrel" concept had been fairly played out. However, in 1995, a new director and some rising stars teamed up with the movie veterans behind Top Gun to create a new breed of action movie.

In Bad Boys, wild card narcotics officers Marcus (Martin Lawrence) and Mike (Will Smith) are in a bind. Their career dope bust has just been robbed from the station, and their only hope of finding it is the witness to a murder. However, circumstances get complicated when the two are forced to switch roles, and family man Marcus has to become swinging bachelor Mike for 72 hours.

The plot of the movie is fairly weak, centering around the drug bust and the cops' efforts to protect the witness, find the dope, and (shock and awe) keep Internal Affairs off their backs. However, the plot is not the reason to see the movie. For the reason, just look to the stars.

The same spirit of banter and hen-pecking that made the Lethal Weapon series so enjoyable is given a fresh coat of paint, and a couple of fresh voices. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence snap, crackle, and explode on screen, whether their shooting the bad guys or just firing pot shots at each other. While Lethal Weapon showed us the friction between a fresh pair of partners, Bad Boys shows us two cops who have been together six years, and know just how to get on each other's nerves.

But even with the snappy humor that Lawrence and Smith bring to the screen, the movie rides on wheels of action. Micheal Bay has become synonymous with action movies, and Bad Boys is the reason why. In his directorial debut, Bay uses swift camera moves, scenic pans, and judicious slow motion, fusing elements of John Woo and MTV to create a fresh take on gunplay and car chases. Although he lacks Woo's finesse in creating bullet ballets, Bay definitely knows how to keep a film's pace going, and Bad Boys does just that.

Sure, the movie's not perfect. The plot is sometimes laughably flawed, and the real Miami PD wouldn't put with half the crap that Smith and Lawrence pull, but the movie is enjoyable nontheless, focusing on character conflict and balls-out adrenaline to keep the audience entertained. Combined with a solid cast of character actors (Joe Pantoliano ROCKS), and Bad Boys is summer entertainment at its funnest. ... Read more

Somebody in Hollywood thought there was some fish-out-of-water potential in this teaming of wild man Woody Harrelson and slow-burning Kiefer Sutherland as a pair of New Mexico cowboys who go to New York to tame the wild, wild, uh ... East. Well, they were mistaken, because this 1994 action-comedy is little more than a tiresome reworking of Crocodile Dundee. Woody and Kiefer head for the Big Apple to rescue the illegal-immigrant daughter of one of their rodeo buddies (who has mysteriously disappeared), and what they discover is a sweatshop operation run by a hot-tempered thug (Dylan McDermott, before his role on TV's The Practice). That's when the boys start using their ropin' and shootin' skills to foil the bad guys. One measure of this film's credibility is the inevitable scene of the boys riding on horseback through the gridlocked streets of Manhattan. Uh huh.You know how it goes... you just have to go with it or marvel at the sheer stupidity of it all. Of course, forget all the sniping if you're a fan of Harrelson or Sutherland--they're both doing their best under the burden of disadvantage. --Jeff Shannon ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars greatest cowboy movie ever
this is a great movie. I thouhgt it was funny. with the pairing of the patient sonny with the fast riding pepper. it is funny watching them try to save a cuban girl while trying to put up with each other

3-0 out of 5 stars Very Humorous
I have only recently viewed this movie. Why did I wait so long? It was very funny, and very entertaining. I would watch it again and again. I read Leonard Maltin's review of the movie. In it he says something about it being "unrealistic". Well, duh, it's just a movie. So just relax. It can be unrealistic if it wants to be.

5-0 out of 5 stars Such a great movie
I saw this when it first came out to rent, it is so funny you will be on the edge of your seat waiting to see what they are going to do/say next.

3-0 out of 5 stars Rootin-Tootin Fun ...In The Big Apple
This review refers to the Universal/Imagine DVD edition of "The Cowboy Way"....

Look out New York!...Pepper Lewis and Sonny Gilstrap,champion rodeo riders from New Mexico are about to gallop their way into your fair city. Yessiree..these guys are real cowboys and their hog tying, roping and riding skills are about to come in mighty handy in th Big Apple.

Woody Harrelson and Kiefer Sutherland make this action/comedy very much worth the view, as two cowboys who find themselves fighting off the bad guys in NYC's garment district.They have come looking for their friend Nacho, who was to pick up his daughter, smuggled in from Cuba. What they find is a missing friend, a girl who is being held hostage by sweat-shop operators and trouble at every turn.The action and comedy is non-stop as they go up against a savvy, ruthless "slave-trader"(Dylan McDermot), but also get a little help from the NYPD in the form of one Officer Sam "Mad Dog" Shaw(Ernie Hudson), who gets a real kick out of playing cowboy.

The DVD is excellent. A beautiful widescreen picture that has sharp details, rich colors and sounds terrific in Dol Dig 5.1 Surround. There are nice captions in English for those needing them and subtitles in Spanish as well.It may also be viewed in Spanish(Stereo) or French(5.1). The DVD includes production notes, bios on the cast, a theatrical trailer, and Web links. It also says(on the case) there are "Film Highlights" as one of the features, but I could not locate these.

Three stars for a very entertaining and fun view, rated PG-13(thematic elements and brief nudity),probably one that will be watched on occassion, but may not stand up to repeated viewings. Great for Woody Harrelson or Kiefer Sutherland fans,and nice to pull out for anyone that has not seen it yet.

Happy Trails....Laurie

5-0 out of 5 stars Real Cowboy's don't come from Texas.
They come from New Mexico. 2 Ropin and Ridin Cowboys head for the Big Apple in an Action Adventure Comedy that will have your complete attention during the duration of the film. Dylan McDermot of "The Practice" plays a very convincing bad guy in a suave manner. There are great moments when the Cowboy meets the big city including a great moment when the two main characters go dining in a fine New York resturant. They don't completely stick out like a sore thumb though, and New York seems to speed right by them with no glance what so ever.
The movie brings up thoughts of wanting to do some line dancing and some "shiver shots". Don't know what that is? You'll see. ... Read more

Bad Boys
Slick to a fault, this glossy action flick takes place in sunny Florida, where Martin Lawrence and Will Smith play two cops--one married with kids, the other a swinging bachelor. The two are forced to trade places to foil criminal mastermind Fouchet (Tchéky Karyo) who has stolen $100 million worth of heroin from a police lockup. Violent, illogical, and filled with wall-to-wall profanity, Bad Boys was the last film produced by the hit-making team of Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer before Simpson's untimely death, and marked the directorial debut of Michael Bay who followed up with The Rock. Bad Boys will be of interest to action buffs and fans of Téa Leoni, who makes one of her early screen appearances in the central supporting role. --Jeff Shannon

Bad Boys II
No one goes to a movie directed by Michael Bay for delicacy and grace; you go because Michael Bay (Armageddon, The Rock) knows how to make your bones rattle during a high-speed chase when a car flips over, spins through the air, and smacks another car with a visceral crunch. Bad Boys II fulfills this expectation and then some. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence may be mere puppets amid all this burning rubber and shrieking metal, but they actually provide a human core to the endless cascade of car wrecks and gunfights. Their easy rapport makes their personal problems--a running joke is Lawrence's attempts at anger management--as engaging as the sheer visual hullabaloo of bullets and explosions. The plot is recycled nonsense about drug lords and dead bodies being used to smuggle drugs, but orchestration of violence is symphonic. If that's your thing, then this is for you. --Bret Fetzer ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Bad to the Bone
The bad boys series are great with popcorn, a beer and a couple of friends to watch it with. Action, comedy, explosions, probably not the chick flick you want to watch with the significant other. The dynamic between Martin Lawrence and Will Smith is great and makes up for any holes in the story. I hope they make this a trilogy!

5-0 out of 5 stars You know you'll buy this movie
These movies are the best ever. Bad Boys 1 has a better story and 2 has hell of better action scenes. The bad thing about the second is that the story really sucked. Its still a good buy though. If you like movies, youll love this.

4-0 out of 5 stars Action and Excitment
Good movie for explosions and shoot-outs, and the humor is solid between Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Not much else there tho, and the story is kind of corny and far-fetched. Sounded great on the home theater though, and was fun to watch. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece
Restraint wrings our emotion. Jumping up and down can express joy, but a perfect ballet segment will convey ecstasy so complete the dance pratically creates it. Subtlety often can explode emotions larger than realism.

Hal Hartley understands this. The characters in his film do not talk like real people. Their speech is subdued, flat, and usually bluntly honest. Their small words carry mountains of meaning.

Most mystery films focus on the identity of the bad guy. This film instead chooses to explore the bad guy's identity. The film opens with him laying unconscious on a cobblestone street. He awakes but has no idea who he is. With this premise, the audience always knows who the bad guy is. He is in almost every frame of the feature. The rest of the film sets about discovering who the bad guy is.

I'm avoiding the film's plot. Telling too much about this film steals many of its pleasures, although I have enjoyed it each of the ten times I have seen it. Most scenes are arranged as artfully as a painting, the actors understand and enlarge Hartley's vision, and the music, ranging from Liz Phair to Pavement, is excellent.

This film may well be the best the ninties have to offer. Hartley's own Simple Men is one of the only other real contenders.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gets better with repeated viewings
Like all Hal Hartley films (I've seen Flirt and Henry Fool, but neither are as good as Amateur), this is a decidedly odd and mannered movie. The first time I saw it, the far-fetched plot and stilted characterizations are a bit unnerving. This is an ambitious project--Hartley explores the fall of man (an event which literally precedes the film) and original sin in the context of an off-kilter Manhattan thriller. There are some hilariously delivered deadpan one-liners (Martin Donovan: "You're a nyphmomanic and you've never had sex? How could that be?" Isabelle Huppert: "I'm choosy.") But the heart of the movie revolves around the title, and how, try as we might, we cannot escape who we are--Hartley seems to suggest that humanity's flaws are indelible, and despite the guises we might adopt, we are only novices. Amateur ranks low on entertainment value (see Air Force One instead), but a great thinking person's film: brainy, sly, somber, and at times (especially the ending), heartbreaking. Hartley's beguiling screenplay unravels its original insights upon repeated viewings, and it makes the effort worthwhile.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Hartley Ever
This is my favorite Hal Hartley film, several of the scenes do not fail to bring a tear to my eye or give me a feeling of frisson and I saw it for the first time in 1995. I think that should say it all.

Purist Hartley fans seem to believe that Trust is the quintessential Hartley, and while I agree that the film is great, Amateur has a much more complicated plot and explores more complicated issues.

The film is all about ontology. What is the nature of being? Can one change? What is memory? Is there an essential nature to existence or is existence mutable depending on experience?

Don't think, however, this is some weird indie/foreign flick heavy on the meaning. Hartley manages to pose all of the above questions within a film that is quirky and funny and deadpan and sad and wonderful all at the same time.

Yes, I know this man.

4-0 out of 5 stars The mark of Hal (Hartley)
Here's the trademark Hartley quirkiness that fuses bullets with uncertainty, a fried-brain accountant and two sexy women, semi-stagey dialogue and neatly dressed corporate hit men. Here's Parker Posey in a small role, Michael Imperioli (of The Sopranos) in a smaller one, and Martin Donovan as the amnesiac lead male who gets involved with Isabelle Huppert's character, an ex-nun who's turned to writing porno fiction--unfortunately, bad enough to make her publisher reject her work.

And here's Elina Lowensohn as well as a porno actress who wants out of her tawdry (though well-paying) life, whose sad eyes and possible death wish clash with her overly sensuous demeanor. How can all these disparate elements, you ask, ever possibly blend into a whole?

An excellent question. In Hartley's film, they do and they don't. Nobody really knows anything for sure; everyone here is an amateur at life, trying to figure out what to do next--or not knowing how to do anything next. Thomas (Martin Donovan's character) can't remember his name or what he did in the past. Isabelle (Huppert's character) knows intuitively she's linked to Sofia (Elina Lowensohn's role) but she doesn't know how. The accountant, Edward (Damian Young) seems self-assured until he has his brains fried and then he's completely unpredictable.

There's shooting and torture and a little love making. There's uncertainty or puzzlement around every corner. We never really know a whole lot, Hartley's saying, and because of that, you could, in fact, meet a porno-loving ex-nun. You could be an accountant whose neat orderly life is scrambled into violent outbursts and uncontrollable behavior. You could wind up becoming a man who doesn't remember his name and makes some effort to find out what it is, but not enough to discover it.

So is this a coherent film? Hartley is interested more in character than coherence. Structure is not as important as how people actually impact each other, how they impinge on each other's lives. It is, he says, this random colliding of personalities that determines what will happen; people are so complex and so full of possibilities that things just...happen as a result of them being brought together.

Once the viewer accepts this perspective, everything falls into place. Or randomly shifts into place--falling here, rising there, making a jagged turn when you least expect it.

This is less satisfying than Hartley's masterpiece Henry Fool, but it is nevertheless a very intriguing film and definitely worth seeing.

5-0 out of 5 stars An amateur rewiew
I was channel-surfing when I landed on IFC showing a "comedy-drama" called Amateur. It was nearly an hour in, and there was this scene of these two geeky accountant types arguing about the merits of various cell-phones while using the wires from a floorlamp to electrocute a Christopher Lloyd look-alike. High-concept, but decidedly "B", I thought. But as the movie progressed, I began to notice the deliberation that led to the quirky stagger of the film. The style itself was saying things that the action couldn't begin to convey. This was high art! And it was funny in an intentionally-unintentional way.
The plot, about an ex-nun who now writes bad pornography, a porn queen with a grudge, and an ex-pornongrapher with amnesia, each searching for their identity, is interesting, but it doesn't begin to tell of the impressive stylishness of this movie. Amateur sucks you in like Beckett mixed with "letters to Penthouse", and leaves you satisfied on both accounts. If this sounds good to you, you should check it out. It shows on IFC quite frequently. Oh also, this movie turned me into a freak for Elina Lowensohn. ... Read more

places to protect her but they will also have to fight a drug war
in order for them to recover the stolen drugs and save Julie's life.

An explosive first entry in the series in hopfully a trilogy wich would be very weird on Bruckheimer's part of taking the
advantage of making his first trilogy.Explosive action , car
chases , unbeleivable stunts and the like wise teaming of Will
Smith and Martin Lawrence who without there chemistry added to
the film would be no sequel and just and ordinary action film
but there Mel Gibson and Danny Glover like appeal makes this film set afire as one of the best films Bruckheimer has made
Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer would only team one more
time for The Rock before Simpson's untimely death , the highly
anticipated bigger and badder sequel is due out this friday
an awsome action film.

I love this movie. It is funny and action-packed. I just wish two could have copied the same formula. It had too much action. It made me dizzy.

4-0 out of 5 stars Something Old, Somthing New
By the mid-nineties, the buddy cop action flick was not a new idea. Starting with 48 Hours and continuing with movies like Beverly Hills Cop and Lethal Weapon, the "cat and dog in a barrel" concept had been fairly played out. However, in 1995, a new director and some rising stars teamed up with the movie veterans behind Top Gun to create a new breed of action movie.

In Bad Boys, wild card narcotics officers Marcus (Martin Lawrence) and Mike (Will Smith) are in a bind. Their career dope bust has just been robbed from the station, and their only hope of finding it is the witness to a murder. However, circumstances get complicated when the two are forced to switch roles, and family man Marcus has to become swinging bachelor Mike for 72 hours.

The plot of the movie is fairly weak, centering around the drug bust and the cops' efforts to protect the witness, find the dope, and (shock and awe) keep Internal Affairs off their backs. However, the plot is not the reason to see the movie. For the reason, just look to the stars.

The same spirit of banter and hen-pecking that made the Lethal Weapon series so enjoyable is given a fresh coat of paint, and a couple of fresh voices. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence snap, crackle, and explode on screen, whether their shooting the bad guys or just firing pot shots at each other. While Lethal Weapon showed us the friction between a fresh pair of partners, Bad Boys shows us two cops who have been together six years, and know just how to get on each other's nerves.

But even with the snappy humor that Lawrence and Smith bring to the screen, the movie rides on wheels of action. Micheal Bay has become synonymous with action movies, and Bad Boys is the reason why. In his directorial debut, Bay uses swift camera moves, scenic pans, and judicious slow motion, fusing elements of John Woo and MTV to create a fresh take on gunplay and car chases. Although he lacks Woo's finesse in creating bullet ballets, Bay definitely knows how to keep a film's pace going, and Bad Boys does just that.

Sure, the movie's not perfect. The plot is sometimes laughably flawed, and the real Miami PD wouldn't put with half the crap that Smith and Lawrence pull, but the movie is enjoyable nontheless, focusing on character conflict and balls-out adrenaline to keep the audience entertained. Combined with a solid cast of character actors (Joe Pantoliano ROCKS), and Bad Boys is summer entertainment at its funnest. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars About a scary as an old sock
This movie reeked. Not just of bad acting or plot, but it suffered the unfortunate disease known as cornymonsteritis. The monster in this movie, Grim, was less than scary, just kinda corny. This movie will tug at you in the night time, giving you equally corny nightmares. However, I decided to add one extra star since this movie had its share of gore and a few cool scenes. All in all, it still sucked!

5-0 out of 5 stars GRIM or Chupacabra?
Basically, I just like how he looks. This movie may be scary o most viewers, but the people who gave it a bad review always judge it on the production values. What do they know about production values. Acting is sometimes off, and this is totally better than Fright Night, Pumpkin Head, and Scream. This movie you have to think. Those of you who don't like to think during a movie will hate it. No this will not stimulate those old brain cells and boggle your minds. If you want something like that read a book, but if you want to have some dumb fun, and make fun of a film this is the one!

1-0 out of 5 stars THE GRIM SLEEPER
One word can sum up this movie: boring. Forget the lack of really good effects; acting; writing; direction. Forget the fact that the monster looks like an actor in heavy ineffectual makeup. I can accept cheesy horror movies, but none that are so boring as GRIM. The pacing is superlethargic, and the musical background atrocious. There were no scares, and only a few unintended laughs. Like where did Steve get the gong and hammer to play? And if Grim could walk through walls, how come he got clobbered by a collapse? Totally inane, and unfortunately, boring!

5-0 out of 5 stars awe inpiring
This is by far the greatest movie i have ever watched. Emmanuel is a great, action oriented hero with great one liner like "EASY!" and "OVER Here @$$hole!" And the late Kadamba was a very talented actress who deserves a nod from the grammy board. Grim, with his rock teleporting ability and great teeth, is one of the scariest monsters I have ever seen, just short of the horrifing Barbra Striesand (spelling?). And when Grim makes his Grim stew...well, its magic!

1-0 out of 5 stars an unhappy viewer
This film is one of the worst horror movies I have ever seen, it is not scary and not even amusing. I don't care that the monster looks fake but there was no suspense and the killings were too short. The film failed to explain where the monster came from or why it was killing people and the director didn't even seem to be able to distinquish night from day. The actors went into the caves in the middle of the day but when the monster came out not long after it was night time.

The film was too frustrating to watch more than once and I wouldn't reccomend it to anyone. ... Read more
