PG-13 | | Action, Comedy, Crime
Two mismatched New York City detectives seize an opportunity to step up like the city's top cops whom they idolize -- only things don't quite go as planned.
The role of Detective Highsmith was originally written with Michael Chiklis in mind. However, when offered the part, he turned it down to avoid typecasting, after the series finale of his acclaimed police drama, The Shield (2002).
In New York City there's a fine line between law and chaos. On that line live Danson and Highsmith.
Before the characters exit the garage in the chase scene, they race up to a stop and you hear a loud engine revving noise. The electric motor in a Pruis wouldn't make that sound at such a low speed.
In the unrated version, the joke that Terry tells Allen after the credits finish rolling is different than the one he tells in the theatrical version.
