Storyline

Bob Bolano and Terry Monroe are two crooked Albuquerque PD detectives. They tend to hustle criminals but their methods have landed them in hot water with their boss, and they are on their last warning. They get wind of a heist and decide to muscle in on the action, robbing the perpetrators. Unfortunately for them, the mastermind of the heist is someone out of their league, someone they would do well to fear. Written by grantss

Did You Know?


Goofs

The movie is set in Albuquerque, but when Jackie asks what's going to happen to Jimmy, Terry states, "I guess they'll ship him back to Rikers with another nickel on his sentence." Rikers Island is part of the NYC Department of Corrections. They would have no interest in further incarcerating a criminal who was convicted of a crime in New Mexico. As with most city jails, Rikers mainly houses pretrial suspects, with only about 15% of their detainees serving post-adjudication, short sentences. See more »

Crazy Wonderful!!
8 January 2017 | by yossarian100See all my reviews

Two Wild and Crazy Guys who pull out all the stops is what John Michael McDonagh had in mind when he created this totally outrageous over the top masterpiece.

I loved the chemistry between Alexander Skarsgard and Michael Pena, I think more than any buddy movie I've ever seen, except for maybe "Freebie and the Bean," with Alan Arkin and James Caan. They were just great together, and together they hit this one right over the center field wall.

I'll own this because I definitely plan on watching it again and again. If you like black comedies where they've thrown out the rule book, you're going to love this.

My highest recommendation for pure unadulterated entertainment.
