When a man (Robbins) believes he has discovered that his wife is having an affair with his boss, it sets off a chain reaction of events. First he wanders into a ghetto where a robber (Lawrence) tries to take his money at gunpoint, but instead sets a wild ride from California to Arizona. The two eventually become reluctant friends. Discussing robbery techniques, they decide to get back at the boss by robbing an office safe containing hundreds of thousands of dollars. Life is further complicated by another pair of robbers who chase the first two for infringing on their territory.

    Wasn’t Martin Lawrence’s character awfully intellectual for a common car-jacker? OK, so he is a skilled computer technician, but are we to believe that he would know of Helen Keller? And what about his use of euphemisms? Would a person like T use phrases like ‘monogamously challenged’ and ‘procreation’?

    Okay, Nick throws his wallet out the window. He had his credit cards in there. We never see him call to cancel, I’d hate to think someone found his wallet and ran up the cards.

    In the beginning of the movie, when Martin and Tim Robbins are at that Arizona diner, Martin gave the waitress a $1 bill. You can clearly see that it was one dollar. So a few scenes later, Martin tells Tim that that the "Five Dollar bill" he gave the waitress was all her had. Anyone who has the DVD check it out.

    It always bugged me they put Lawrence’s name on Robbins and vice versa. I think they do that with the Twins cover too.

    It seems everybody asked for a song title, but unfortunately for me, nobody asked for the one I want.

    When Nick Beam starts to kiss the florist in the elevator, a ladies night dancehall version begins. Does anybody know who sings it, and if there are other songs on the same riddim?

    Thanks

    I don’t know if this has been discussed before but I can’t be bothered going through other conversations.

    I love this movie but it annoys me the amount of things that could lead them to being caught.

    1. The video obviously. I know it cuts out before his face is seen but he said his name before that didn’t he? And it had sound because we heard him shout and cut the statue.

    2. His clothes. He wears the same thing and could probably be picked out as being the same guy in the video.

    3. The gas station guy saw their faces and made the phone call so police could link it back to him.

    4. The criminals that WERE arrested could have told police. They knew Nick’s full name and had his cards.

    5. There definitely would have been fingerprints left around the place. Most obviously the sword they see being used in the video. By process of elimination and seeing how many people had used the sword they could pick Nick out (combined with the other evidence anyway.) Though this probably wouldn’t be the best way because Nick works there.

    6. Go back to find the electrician who messed with the video.

    There are probably more ways than that.

    People need to stop trying to analyze this movie to death and pick it apart, and just see it for what it really is: HILLARIOUS! Stop trying to stare deep into its eyes and just laugh. The comedy is whizzing by you!

    Near the end – when Martin Lawrence, upset at the state of his life – tosses the pistol in a trash can because he doesn’t want it anymore.

    I understand that this scene is him "giving up" his criminal lifestyle. But, isn’t that kind of dangerous? I mean, you’re walking through the ghetto; toss a loaded handgun into a PUBLIC TRASH BIN and stroll on.

    Some kind stumbles upon it and you have a couple dead murders that you are indirectly responsible for. Or, some unsuspecting garbage man picks it up and the thing fires; killing or injuring him.

    Its one of those things that makes me think, "Why didn’t you toss it down a storm-drain or something?"

    Where did T. get the video clip with Nick’s feet on fire to record over the security camera’s tape?

    Answer: He must have pocketed the video camera! =D
