Plot Summary

A none-too-bright criminal, Archie Moses (Adam Sandler) works for drug kingpin Frank Colton (James Caan) and remains oblivious to the fact that one of his closest buddies is actually an undercover police officer named Jack Carter (Damon Wayans). After Moses accidentally shoots Carter, the cop must recover and then bring the two-bit thug in to take the stand against Colton. With Carter and Moses on far from good terms, however, the trip does not go well.

    Bulletproof is a raunchy exercise in macho posturing -- but thanks to a layer of satire, the new action comedy at Bay Area theaters provides a few zingers of lowbrow entertainment. show more

    The homoerotic subtext of the whole buddy movie oeuvre has never received quite the explicit lampooning it gets in this quirky, crash-and-burn action-comedy. [6 Sept 1996, p.8]

    That it works as well as it does is because the stars, Damon Wayans and Adam Sandler, have an easy rapport and some good one-liners, and the film is short and manic. show more
