Damon Wayans and Adam Sandler actually work together pretty well as action-flick buddies on opposite sides of the law. The story line is familiar, to put it mildly, as car-thief and drug-courier Sandler is set up and busted by Wayans's undercover cop, a man he's come to trust with his life. Dozens of movies, including Quentin Tarantino's great Reservoir Dogs, have tilled this fallow field before. But for once we can actually feel the bonds connecting the two tough guys, and the pain of their falling out, even when the movie dawdles over repetitious squabbling scenes. Cinematographer-turned-director Ernest Dickerson (Juice) gives this modestly budgeted programmer an unusually high visual gloss, with punchy high-speed action scenes that recall the Hong Kong blowout work of John Woo. James Caan leers and glowers entertainingly as a criminal mastermind, and lynx-eyed Kristen Wilson makes a dazzling femme fatale. --David Chute

Wayans plays a cop who goes undercover and befriends Sandler in order to bust a HUGE drug smuggling ring, with ties to the FBI. The bust sours, Wayans takes a bullet in the head and Sandler escapes.
Later Wayans is assigned to bring Sandler in to finish what he started. A large group of cops gather to bring Sandler in and, once again, something goes wrong. Wayans is left on his own with Sandler. Sandler accuses Wayans of being cold-hearted because he was only pretending to be his friend, and Wayans rags on Sandler for shooting him in the head.
I do not want to give away the whole movie, but it is action-packed and Wayans and Sandler trade hilarious one-liners.
In my opinion its the BEST Adam Sandler movie I have. This movie is R though for language,violence, sexual situations and beer. But that's what makes a good movie. If I were you I would go to the store and get it. You don't know what you're missing if you don't.
The best part is...
LITTLE KETES THE DOG(he gets drunk in the movie)
