Quotes

Miles Logan: Damn. What happened? Did you eat the whole time I was in there? Wait a minute, that's alright. I can adjust, it's the love that counts. I can adjust to a plus size woman, just more cushion for the pushing.
Shawna: Janiece! Your sad-ass sack of bones is here!
Miles Logan: I apologize, you're her cousin. Can I buy you some cereal?

Awesome action movie! Funny as hell.
15 December 2002 | by Jack the Ripper1888See all my reviews

Martin Lawrence (BIG MOMMA'S HOUSE) makes you laugh until you stomach hurts and delivers the goods as he blows stuff up in BLUE STREAK, one of the better action comedies ever made. Luke Wilson, Peter Greene, Dave Chappelle, William Forsythe, John Hawkes, Julio Oscar Mechoso and Olek Krupa are among the cast who all deliver fine performances.

If you liked RUSH HOUR, then you will like BLUE STREAK. The plot is a typical action plot and the humor is pretty original. I must say that I was not expecting to like this film as much when I first saw it. Once you see BLUE STREAK once, you will have to see it again. It is that good. BLUE STREAK gets 5/5.
