The stars of the ‘Bad Boys’ movie Martin Lawrence and Will Smith both comic actors, talented, allowed talking way too much in the development of this film, a genuine chemistry that is very fun to watch.
A 30-year-old director Michael Bay’s first feature is the “Bad Boys”. ‘Bad Boys’ is a loud, fast, action movie mixed with comedy, a story of a mismatched cop-buddy – Martin Lawrence as Mike Lowrey and Will Smith as Marcus Burnett.
