"No, I'm chaos and he's mayhem. We're a double act."
I sincerely love this cartoon because not only are they the worst police officers on earth (pulling a gun on the jaywalker is an all-timer), but in this one they're also idiots. It'ss like a relatively incredibly polished Terence Hill/Bud Spencer movie.
But oh man the attempt, even clumsier and more po-faced here than in part 2, to lend these films some kind of social conscience is just poison. It's a hypocritical buzzkill apology for all the fun excessive force and Riggs the Dog Whisperer.
You know how they recklessly blow up that building at the beginning? Well they show up when a second building explodes after the end credits, and I've always imagined the other LETHAL WEAPON movie about the pursuit of a mad bomber that was happening parallel to this one. I don't care how lazy or stupid these are, I could watch a hundred of them.
