Martin Lawrence stars in this hilarious, action-packed comedy as Earl Montgomery, a cocky L.A.P.D. cadet who would probably be a great cop if he weren't such a show-off. Earl's rebellious attitude gets him thrown out of the police academy, and he has to settle for a job as a lowly security guard with "National Security." When Earl has a run-in with an uptight police officer, Hank Rafferty (Steve Zahn), Earl accuses him of harassment. Hank loses his badge, is thrown into jail, and eventually winds up working for National Security as well--with his mortal enemy. Earl's overzealous work style leads to the discovery of a sophisticated smuggling operation led by Nash (Eric Roberts) and a possible police cover-up. Now everyone wants Earl and Hank dead-though they just may kill each other first.
