  • Rating: R
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.

    Bulletproof is one of my favorite Adam Sandler movies. I don't think it gets the credit it deserves. Sure, the acting is horrible, the plot is predictable, some jokes miss their mark. If you want to turn your brain off for 90 minutes and just laugh, this is worth a watch. *It has great replay value.

    Sandler and Wayans team up for a very comedic movie!!! This movie was very amusing, and throw in some James Caan action and you get a great time.

    A funny 90s movie

    If you didn't know, back in the day Hollywood did alot of off beat comedies with two star actors and mostly with black and white actors. Bulletproof was one of the those movies that wasn't as popular as Lethal Weapon, and 48Hrs, but yet it was okay. The plot was a little far fetched, but still a good team up of Sandler and D. Wayans.
