Fast furious and extremely funny describes this film from beginning to end! I especially loved James Caan's character as he was such a serious bad guy!

A Great Team

"I really liked this movie for a couple different reasons. First of all both Damon Wayans and Adam Sandler are two of my favorite comedy actors. Both these guys seem to draw off each other very well and make a great team. I also liked the story and the little twists and turns it takes close to the end. There are also a few scenes that are the funniest stuff I've ever seen Sandler do. If you're in to crime, action, and most of all comedy movies then I definately say buy this movie"

"Adam Sandler does it again, with another fun movie! This one is action-packed, and a great buddy movie. Damon Wayans is excellent in this film as well, and the two together make for a fun memorable show.The ending will leave you with a few loose ends, but you won't miss much... with an ending as funny as the rest of this film."
An enjoyable, underrated action/comedy flick

"In Hollywood, several comedy stars who make action flicks usually get laughed at- and they usually get laughed at pretty bad. Sure, it would be interesting to see someone like Jim Carrey or Robin Williams do an action movie,but that will probably never happen, and once comedy star Bruce Willis proved that he could pull off an action movie("Die Hard")while Eddie Murphy has a talent for both action and comedy as well. So, if you take a look at Adam Sandler and his movies, and if you thought that you would never see Adam Sandler do an action movie, then you are wrong-because Sandler's 1996 film with Daman Wayans, "Bulletproof" does have some comedy in it, but there is a lot of action in it as well.
The movie starts off with Sandler portaying Archie Moses, a small time car thief and a drug dealer in Los Angeles. His best friend is Rock Keats (Wayans)who is also a car thief. Moses and Keats have been friends for a year. Meanwhile, Moses is working on a drug operation with a drug lord named Frank Colton (James Caan)and talks to Colton (his boss)about bringing Keats in on their operation. Colton is worried that Keats is a cop, but Moses assures Colton that Keats is not a cop, and then Keats is in on the operation. The only problem is that Keats is a cop, his real name is Jack Carter, and he is working undercover with the LAPD to bust Moses and Colton at a sting operation the LAPD has set up.
Then, the day finally comes. When Moses finds out that Keats is a cop, he feels angry. He feels betrayed. And then he shoots Keats (accidently). Moses and Colton then become fugitives, Keats ends up in a Los Angeles hospital, and six months later, he gets out. This is when Moses is arrested in Arizona, and because Colton wants Moses dead for a bringing a cop into his organization (as well as Keats)Moses is ready to turn Colton in so Colton will be arrested and Moses won't have to worry for his life. But Moses will only bring Colton in on one condition: Keats must bring him in. So Keats flys out to Arizona so he can bring Moses back to California to testify against Colton. However, Colton is aware of everything that has happened, and as a result, Moses and Colton spend their time trying to get back to California while they are at each other's throats, and several funny events are happening.
"Bulletproof" is an enjoyable, underrated action/comedy flick. It was directed by Ernest Dickerson, who has directed thrillers such as "Juice" and "Surviving The Game" and has even worked with Spike Lee as a cinematagrapher on some of his films. Dickerson is a good director, and "Bulletproof" gives him the chance to show his directing talent. Adam Sandler, Daman Wayans, and James Caan do a good job with their acting in this movie, while they keep the chemistry flowing between their characters. "Bulletproof" is action, comedy, and chemistry all together at their best, and if you are a fan of Adam Sandler, Daman Wayans, James Caan, or movies with both action and comedy, then you should check out this movie."
Tough cop. Hostile Witness. Will they ever be able to get al

"Bulletproof (1996) Damon Wayans (Blankman) and Adam Sandler (Happy Gilmore) team up for this ragged but watchable buddy action comedy from director Ernest Dickerson (Surviving the Game). Wayans is an undercover cop who has spent a year befriending two-bit criminal Sandler in order to get closer to Sandler's boss (James Caan). When Wayans moves in to make his bust, it all goes wrong and Sandler accidentally shoots Wayans before escaping. Months later, Sandler is ready to turn himself in, but demands that a recovered Wayans be the cop to do it. Reluctantly, Wayans agrees, and soon they're both clay pigeons for Caan's henchmen. It's a cross between a Lethal Weapon sequel and yet another Saturday Night Live cast movie, and as such isn't exactly seamless. The guys get in some funny lines, but the film goes overboard with the comedy and gets silly too often, especially with all the violence. Sandler wavers between actually acting and doing an extension of his Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore roles, but Wayans is pretty good. All in all, if you like these guys, this will probably serve as entertainment, especially on good ol' home video. Also with James Farentino (Dead and Buried)."
As good as Bad Boys

"This gem seems to have slipped through the cracks. My kids are big fans of Adam Sandler and when I saw this title with Damon Wayans, we just had to check this out. It was even better than what we expected! The movie has a great storyline and just had us in stitches. If you like movies, such as Bad Boys or Shanghai Noon, you will love this movie!"
