Additional Blu-ray Versions

They're working both sides of the law.

Jack Cates (Nick Nolte, Tropic Thunder, Hotel Rwanda) and Reggie Hammond (Eddie Murphy, Norbit, Shrek) would never be friends. . .but they're about to be partners. Cates is a hard-nosed cop out to avenge the deaths to two fellow officers. Hammond is a smart-aleck felon, out to retrieve the stash of cash still hidden from his last job. In order to bring the killers to justice, Cates has to find their ex-partner - Reggie. The catch? Hammond is in the slammer. Now, Cates must use his pull to get Reggie a 48-hour parole. . .and make him his temporary partner.

Director Walter Hills sends Nolte and Murphy on a wild ride, setting the standard for the ultimate buddy-cop thriller. 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!
