Bad Boys

Then the Will Smith season on channel 5 continued with Bad Boys. Not as bad as I remember it being, and still better than Bad Boys II which I thought was awful with lots of confusing gun fights. Still, back to the first film. Now unlike MIB, this IS a Will Smith film. If it isn't several shots of him with his shirt open/off while a huge fan is blowing in his face, then it's Martin Lawrence trying to be Will Smith; "I'm Mike Lowery". Generally I think it's just an excuse to make Will Smith look good, shoot guns and drive fast cars. But then having seen the names Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer at the beginning I didn't expect Hamlet! Whatcha gonna do?
Still, Joe Pants is good, and Téa Leoni is nice to look at in this film.
