How in the world did we, as a society, love the hell out of the Lethal Weapon series? To me, that suggests massive problems that our statesmen really need to address. I don’t care if that was twenty years ago, we still haven’t fully paid for the crimes of enjoying Lethal Weapon.
In this wacky adventure of the original buddy cops, they have to stop an evil ex-cop from distributing machine guns and armor-piercing ammo to street thugs. With the wacky help of a new (woman!) cop and the wacky antics of wacky Joe Pesci, this promises to be the wackiest cop movie yet! Now with exactly the same amount of 90% car chases!
This movie has so many one-liners that characters will actually continue talking OVER other characters who are saying plot-related things. It’s so ridiculously stupid and filled with dumb explosions that you can’t help but try so very hard not to cry. This movie and the rest of its series were so popular that EVERYTHING IN THEM is now cliche. That’s amazing and horrifying and it just makes me want to leave. Leave anywhere, it doesn’t matter. Just leave.
