I purchased this film knowing little to nothing about it. My impression was that Chris Noth either played a rotten character, or a character who goes bad through the course of the movie. I couldn't have been more wrong.
'Bad Apple' is a fun, enjoyable movie that doesn't take itself too seriously, and travels along at rollicking pace.
Chris Noth and Colm Meaney star in this movie as FBI agents who are working and busting members of the criminal underworld. Noth's character goes undercover in order to get more evidence, and this is where everything begins to go awry.
Noth's character, Mike Tossi, falls for the sister of the crook who he is supposed to be acting as the business partner of. The catch is, the bad boy that he is attempting to set up a business deal with also has it bad for her.
Through a series of comical blunders, Noth and his would-be girlfriend end up hostages of this particular psychopath, and Meaney's character and his wife wind up hostages themselves - first to the mafia figure that Meaney and Noth were trying to nail, and then to the crook who was supposed to be helping them to begin with.
The movie is more than a little left of centre, but it's fun to watch nonetheless. It's certainly worth getting, provided you don't pay too much for it.
