This post-modern comic variation on The Defiant Ones concerns Keats (Damon Wayans), an undercover police detective trying to get the goods on crime kingpin Frank Colton (James Caan). Keats poses as a crook to make friends with one of Colton's underlings, a drug dealer and car thief named Archie Moses (Adam Sandler). Keats is using Archie as part of a sting operation to put Colton away; however, Archie doesn't care for this, and when he finds out Keats's true plan and actual identity, it leads to an altercation that ends with Archie shooting Keats in the head. Several months later, Keats emerges from the hospital with a metal plate in his skull, and he has to bring Archie in. However, now Archie and Keats are both on Colton's enemies list, and the two find themselves on the run in Arizona, trying to outwit Colton's team of assassins, but having Archie on hand doesn't do much good in the outwitting department. Bulletproof was directed by Ernest Dickerson, who got his start as a cinematographer for Spike Lee.

If you have not seen bullet proof it is a great movie from the late 90s were Adam Sandler plays a more normal role. Well a hilarious more normal role. This is one of my favorites and I am an 80s baby. This Hass to be my favorite Adam Sandler movie but I do love about 10 other movies from Adam Sandler this is just a more serious kind of one or adult one
Bulletproof is a 90's classic. CLASSIC. Gotta love R-rated Adam Sandler. Damon Wayans plays off of Adam very well, making this one of the best buddy comedies I've ever seen. Just hilarious from beginning to end.
I use to own this on VHS back in the day, but luckily found it on Blu-ray right here on Best Buy's website. Shout out to Best Buy for having this in stock. If Universal Pictures ever releases this again, remastered properly with a new scan for 4K UHD Blu-ray, I'll definitely have to scoop that up ASAP.
Anyway, worth the buy. You won't regret it.
