Director: Michael Bay
Also Starring: Martin Lawrence, Téa Leoni, Theresa Randle

This isn’t your ordinary buddy-cop movie—it’s a Michael Bay buddy-cop movie. In this debut film of the Bad Boys franchise, we meet Smith and Lawrence for the first time as a Miami-Dade detective team with five days to figure out who heisted $100 million worth of confiscated heroin. It’s action-packed (as if Michael Bay would have it any other way), funny, and just as entertaining now as it was in ‘95. It also solidified Smith’s status as a movie star just before his days on TV came to an end.
