Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) is from a rich family but is now a cop, and quite a playboy. His partner, Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) is a family man. When a whole heap of drugs are stolen from the evidence room, their boss Captain Howard (Joe Pantoliano) tasks them with finding it before it hits the fan. Things happen, they end up with a witness, Julie Mott (Tea Leoni) who thinks Mike is Martin and vice versa and things get somewhat crazy.
There are crazy big plot holes, there is no way that these police would begin to function in the real world. It’s totally ridiculous, and it doesn’t hold up for me at all, no matter how much I love Will Smith. But, as long as you don’t watch it as a crime drama in any way, shape or form, but instead as a comedy with lots of explosions, it’s okay. It’s really worth skipping through to the last ten minutes for the fun time explosive, shoot ‘em up show down.
