Nick Nolte is a cop. Eddie Murphy is a con.
Eddie Murphy (Shrek) and Nick Nolte (Tropic Thunder) make one of the most unusual and entertaining teams ever in Walter Hill's roller-coaster thriller, 48 Hrs.
Cates (Nolte) is a rough-edged cop after two vicious cop-killers. He can't do it without the help of smooth and dapper Reggie (Murphy), who is serving time for a half-million dollar robbery. Cates uses his pull to get Reggie a 48-hour parole . . . and make him his temporary partner. As the boys race the clock, they discover they have only one thing in common: they'd both kill to find the bad guys . . . if they don't kill each other first!
