DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Comedy - Spectacular action scenes, crude and crass humor, incredible gun battles and even a little bit of a story. I would say this latest Bad Boys is exactly what most Bad Boys fans were expecting or at least hoping for. It's Bad Boys 1 ratcheted up a few thousand percent.

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Very Poor "The only thing as bad as bad comedy is bad action. Bad Boys II has plenty of both. In fact, those two things are all it has, unless you count the small helping of bad drama. When it comes to this movie, the word "bad" initially seems highly appropriate. But Bad Boys II isn't just bad - it's a catastrophic violation of every aspect of cinema that I as a film critic hold dear.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Poor "Bad Boys II is a bloated, unpleasant assembly-line extrusion in which there are a lot of chases and a lot of killings and explosions. Oh, it's all done with competent technique. Michael Bay, the director, is a master of this sort of thing, and his screenplay was labored over by at least four writers, although there is not an original idea in it.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Below Average "Every time the movie goes off in its own direction, it just seems weird. There won't have to be the usual 45 minutes of outtakes on the Boys II DVD. They're all in the movie. ...appallingly mean-spirited with ha-ha bullet wounds and dismemberments, including a scene in which cars run over corpses.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Poor "Longer, louder, stupider and more vulgar than 1995's BAD BOYS... Ron Shelton and Jerry Stahl's script barely squeezes the odd bit of police work between Smith and Lawrence's smart-aleck buddy banter and "we bad" posturing. When not screeching heedlessly down crowded city streets and freeways, endangering motorists and pedestrians, the self-satisfied duo mouth off to the brass, make posterior jokes and scare white people by waving guns and acting all crazy.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

WOW! It's a good thing you don't have to rely on movie critics to help you know what's worth seeing. They certainly missed it on Bad Boys II. They say it's poor, but moviegoers thought it was GREAT! And virtually no moviegoers thought it was anywhere near as bad as critics said it was. In fact, an unusually large percentage gave it the highest rating of FANTASTIC.

GO SEE BAD BOYS II!

IT ABSOLUTELY "MUST" BE SEEN ON THE BIG SCREEN (and more than once) to fully experience the incredible special effects.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
This is a GREAT action movie and a decent buddy movie. According to critics it certainly isn't a great movie, but I feel it's even more action packed and funnier than what Bad Boy fans could have hoped for or expected. Its got the best car chase scene I've ever seen, plus many other incredible action scenes. It's very funny, especially if you enjoy the style of humor these two put out together. Let me put it this way, at the end of the movie the majority of the audience clapped and cheered. Endorsements don't get any better than that. Don't believe the critics! GO SEE THESE BAD BOYS!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The boys are back and badder than ever.

The danger quotient is heightened and so are the laughs in this new installment as Miami narcotics detectives Mike Lowrey (Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Lawrence) become part of a high-tech task force assigned to stem the flood of designer ecstasy into Miami. They unwittingly uncover a deadly conspiracy involving a ruthless drug lord, played by Jordi Mollà, who is determined to expand his empire and take control of the city's burgeoning narcotics trade, killing anyone who stands in his way.

To make matters worse, Marcus' beautiful sister Syd (Gabrielle Union), an undercover DEA agent, gets caught in the crossfire, forcing our heroes to the edge of the law. The assignment takes on further complications when romantic sparks start to fly between Mike and Syd, driving her overly protective brother completely around the bend.

But Marcus and Mike must overcome their differences to bring down Tapia. And when Syd's cover is jeopardized, it's up to the Bad Boys to rescue her.
