My Thoughts:
While I still enjoyed the movie... it wasn't as good as part 1. The storyline... while kept me interested... wasn't as good as the first. The comedy definitely wasn't there like it was in the previous movie. But over-all not a bad movie. Though I did expect more from it. I think one problem was that they stretched it out too long. It may have been better if they stuck with no more then a 2 hour movie. While I can see myself watching it again... I wouldn't as much as the first part. But it is worth seeing though.

Next up....

A Martin Lawrence movie


Martin Lawrence played Marcus Burnette in the previous movie Bad Boys 2.

My Choices:
Titles in bold are ones I never seen before.

- Bad Boys
- Bad Boys 2
- Black Knight
- Blue Streak
- National Security
- Nothing to Lose
- Open Season


I'll probably just stick with what I haven't seen yet... and watch Open Season.

My Thoughts:
Not really a bad film... but not a great one either. I don't see myself watching this one too often. But sure I will watch it again at some point. There is a few good scenes... but for the most part found it a little too silly. As well as a gross joke or two thrown in. I did like when Boog and Elliott broke into the store and ate all that candy. Probably the best scene in the movie. I thought the cast did well though. Worth seeing... but don't have high hopes for this one.
