It’s STACK‘s Friday Flick time, where each week we’ll recommend a slice of classic movie viewing that’s sure to get your weekend off to a great start. This week, it’s Bad Boys.
Take two Miami cops, then add a murder witness, missing proceeds of a huge drug bust, an identity switcheroo, all manner of orange skies and direction from action guy Michael Bay and you have the makings of an action classic.
Will Smith is Mike Lowrey, a trust fund kid who drives a Porsche, while Martin Lawrence’s Marcus Burnett came to the force the more regular way. Regardless of their backgrounds, the two old friends make for good new partners, bringing the hard action and easy (if not PC) repartee.
Four reasons why Bad Boys rocks:
1. Classic buddy cop repartee.
2. The uber-Bay chase sequences (and Will Smith’s abs!)
3. “My sh-t always works sometimes!”
4. Those orange skies.
