Bad Boys with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. 1995.
Miami narcotics cops -- wild, single Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and mild, married Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) -- are hot on the trail of master crook Fouchet (La Femme Nikita's Tcheky Karyo), who's snatched $100 million worth of heroin. To get their only witness (Tea Leoni) to talk, Smith and Lawrence must pose as each other, swapping lives as they work the case. Michael Bay directs this explosively (literally!) fast-paced actioner.

I gave it 3 stars out of 5. Fun and action packed, not groundbreaking
Con Air. 1997. R.
When the government puts all its rotten criminal eggs in one airborne basket, it's asking for trouble. Before you can say, "Pass the barf bag," the crooks control the plane, led by creepy Cyrus "The Virus" Grissom (John Malkovich). Watching his every move is the just-released Nicolas Cage, who'd rather reunite with his family. The action climaxes with an incredible crash sequence in Las Vegas.
Purchase at Amazon.
I gave this 4 out of 5. Star studded, over the top, un-realistic, but very entertaining!
