Money Talks (1997)

Oh, what they've tried in the fifteen years since 48 HRS:  young 
cop/old cop (STAKEOUT), young cop/really old cop (THE ROOKIE), 
young cop/old cop/district attorney (ANOTHER STAKEOUT), good cop/
crazy cop (LETHAL WEAPON), good cop/crazy cop/witness (LETHAL 
WEAPON 2), good cop/crazy cop/she cop (LETHAL WEAPON 3), American 
cop/Russian cop (RED HEAT), American cop/Japanese cop (COLLISON 
COURSE), hungover cop/hapless citizen (DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE), 
smart cop/slob cop (TANGO AND CASH), real cop/fake cop (THE HARD 
WAY), real cop/alien cop (ALIEN NATION), tall cop/short cop (BAD 
BOYS), silly cop/sillier cop (NATIONAL LAMPOON'S LOADED WEAPON I), 
young cop/old convict (THE ROCK), old cop/young convict again 
(ANOTHER 48 HRS.), young cop/young convict (BULLETPROOF), bail 
bondsman/convict (MIDNIGHT RUN), convict/convict (FLED), and, now, 
convict/reporter, with Chris Tucker and Charlie Sheen as the re-
spective abrasive personalities thrown together for the duration of 
a weekend.  Or maybe longer, but I can't be sure, because I walked 
out after about a half-hour.  Mr. Tucker, so good in THE FIFTH ELE-
ENT, has enough energy for *four* films, but his limitless enthus-
iasm is really no match for a cliched plot, witless profanity, and 
a co-star who won't stop scowling.  And what's David Warner doing 
here?  (Rated "R"/92 min.)

Grade: W/O
