The Last Boy Scout
Amillion dollar script from Lethal Weapon screenwriter Shane Black, the wisecracking talents of Bruce Willis, a plot that takes second place to the action, and enough bullets-through-heads, punch-ups and exploding cars to fill three movies.

Ex-secret agent-turned-private eye Joe Hallenbeck (Willis), takes a case protecting an exotic dancer named Cory, only to see her shot to pieces in a gangland-style hit. Saddled with Cory's boyfriend, ex-football player Jimmy Dix (Wayans) as a sidekick, the two begin to investigate her death, leading them to discover corruption in the world of football and politics.

This is a movie for the boys who like watching men being real men - cursing, shooting and fighting - and anyone who likes this kind of wham-bam entertainment will certainly get more than their money's worth.
