The teaming of Jerry Bruckheimer and Joel Schumacher for Bad Company sparks ideas of the Most Fabulous Action Flick, not the Great Action Comedy. Ice-cold CIA agent Gaylord Oakes (Anthony Hopkins) enlists the aid of street-savvy Jake Hayes (Chris Rock) to close a nuclear-weapons deal in Prague. But there’s not a shred of evidence that this Rock is the same man famous for his clever, biting comedy. Following a predictable car chase, two boring bloodbaths, and a rooftop standoff, Hayes finally beats Oakes into submission with banal one-liners.
