it's always a dangerous business to revisit the movies i liked as a kid, especially american ones.
as an italian teen, with zero knowledge of american history and society, this to me was just a violent buddy cop movie with a lot of foul language.
now all the racist, homophobic and misogynistic jokes are really hard to ignore. and as much as i like murphy and nolte, they really can't elevate two terrible characters (especially nolte).
i could just take 30 minutes and i skipped throught the rest to the end.
at least i enjoyed what i think it's the blueprint for the "screaming police captain".
