Obnoxious, racially charged odd-couple action-comedy pairing a put-upon white ex-cop (Steve Zahn) with the churlish, chronically offended black security guard (Martin Lawrence) who got him fired and imprisoned on false charges of police brutality. As directed by Dennis Dugan, the film plays Lawrence's racist rants for laughs, while potential sympathy for white men or cops getting a raw deal is mitigated by making the villain a corrupt white police lieutenant. Racist stereotyping, frequent action violence, a sexually suggestive scene, some crass expressions, minimal profanity, and an instance of rough language. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
