How Much Money He's Making: $74.6 million
What Will's Doing: Making a shameless money grab. Like all of Michael Bay’s recent efforts, this sequel sucked, but made a barge full of cash. The much puffier Smith-Lawrence duo are still narcotics cops, but instead of heroin, it's ecstasy. This time they’re up against the KKK, the Russians and the Cubans—an unlikely trifecta of evil if there ever was one. Smith and Lawrence exchange passionless banter between fights, car crashes, and gargantuan explosions. The mindlessly entertaining action flick rode Smith’s still-cresting popularity to $270 million in gross profits.
