A grizzled veteran cop (Nick Nolte) is determined to hunt down a couple of cop killers and needs the help of a smooth-talking convict (Eddie Murphy) who's behind bars for robbery. Cates (Nolte) pulls a few strings and gets Reggie (Murphy) a 48-hour furlough to help track down the murderers, but will this odd couple be able to tolerate each other long enough to catch the bad guys?

It's hard to believe it's been nearly 30 years since Eddie Murphy launched his feature film career with this classic buddy flick. He and Nolte have great chemistry and returned to the screen eight years later with Murphy at the top of his career after Beverly Hills Cop I and II and Coming to America. Like most films from this era, it can get a tad campy, but it holds up pretty well due to the two stars.
