The pair’s unorthodox methods get results in a tough town until they come up against Julio Gonzales; a smooth-talking drug dealer who’s looking to become Chicago’s first Spanish Godfather. As the detectives try to nail Gonzales, they blow a delicate undercover operation. Their boss then sends the two on a forced vacation to Key West as punishment. It’s there that the the men discover the good life with warm weather and even warmer women.

  1. It’s always a little jarring to hear an old episode, very different style than your new episodes. Guessing this was recorded in 2012?

    1. This one might have even been in 2011, but it’s an old one. We have 9 or 10 more we will be re-releasing through 2020.

  2. Billy and gregory were two good actors here i mean this is a buddy comedy action movie reminds me of another 70’s movie of this kind called Freebie and the Bean which was a good action comedy movie i liked this one this one had some laughs and action to it as well it is a shame they did not do another one together anyway good movie worth watching i liked it
