Whatever It Takes

release year: 1997
genre: action/comedy
viewing setting: home DVD, 6/29/99
what I expected: to be entertained
what I got: good mix of action and dirty humor

synopsis: Two buddy cops must take down a ring of steroid dealers.

impressions: This movie had it all: gunfights, fistfights, nudity, dolts getting beaten severely, lots of hot women working out in the gym, over-the-top good and bad guys. Very entertaining, if simplistic and formulaic.

acting: Don "the Dragon" Wilson aims high for dramatic effect here, while Andrew Dice Clay does his usual thing.

final word: Worth seeing, it kept me interested.

rating: C+
