2 1/2 out of 5 stars. I can recognize that Bad Boys wasn't a bad movie but I wasn't amazed by it either. Sean Penn puts out a pretty good early performance but Horowitz stole the show after duking it out with (and eventually defeating) Clancy Brown's flesh colored permullet. The story is timeless but the execution is kind of dated. If nothing else its better than Michael Bay's Bad Boys.
Sean Penn stars as a tough delinquent who goes to juvenile correctional facility for a few crimes committed, one of them accidentally killing his arch nemesis's little brother.There he tries to survive amongst murderers and rapists. Great acting from the cast including Penn in one of his earliest roles. Feels very 80's sometimes but I think it holds up pretty well, love the main theme song.
