    Lawrence goes the extreme distance to make you fall out of your chair laughing.
  2. Reviewed by: Jim Sullivan
    A rather witty, streetwise comedy/action movie with a lot going for it.
  3. It isn't particularly subtle or original. But it's a good-natured late-summer romp fueled by Lawrence's manic shtick.
  4. 50
    It's a dumb movie, but it's good for a few profoundly undemanding laughs.
  5. (Lawrence) has every right to be proud of carrying this rickety film on his stooped shoulders.
  6. Reviewed by: Cody Clark
    An empty reminder that Martin Lawrence can be pretty funny, in a spastic, loose-limbed way -- maybe next time he'll get a worthwhile script.

    (Lawrence)'s not just unfunny, he's coarsely anti-funny. The film just lurches from one dull skit to the next without bite or much of a point.

    In this movie actor Martin Lawrence starts in a made to order story of a jewel tief who returns to the scene of the crime to retrieve his loot. Only to find that the construction site where he stashed the diamon is now a police station. He gets told that the only way to get inside is being under arrested or by wearing a badge, he decides to pretend that he is detective. Expand

    Blue Streak is an amusing and action packed action comedy. Martin Lawrence pretends to be a detective in order to recover a stolen diamond he hid in a building that has become a police station. The movie has Luke Wilson as Lawrence's partner who is always hilarious. Peter Greene from Pulp Fiction and The Usual Suspects is the villain and he gives a great role. Expand

    Blue Streak is a hilarious action comedy with Martin Lawrence. He goes undercover in a police precinct
    to recover a diamond he stashed years
    ago. Luke Wilson is also funny as his partner at the station and
    on the streets.

    It has the Martin Lawrence stamp. Nothing more. But it's ok :)
