100 Words or Less – Blue Streak (1999)

100-words-or-less

Title –   Blue Streak

Released – 1999

Director – Les Mayfield

Starring – Martin Lawrence, Luke Wilson, Peter Greene.

Review – After a failed heist, Miles (Lawrence) stashes a diamond in a building site. Returning after doing time, it’s a Police Station! A funny set up that leads to him pretending to be a cop, and getting out of awkward situations like a drug deal or a robbery. It’s actually not too bad, and besides a few misplaced jokes it usually raises a smile. I’m a sucker for Lawrence’s mugging to the camera and ridiculous slapstick routine; he’s like the black Kevin James. Luke Wilson is fine as the poor man’s Owen Wilson, and go-to 90’s villain Peter Greene is awesome.
