      Adam Sandler has attempted to do dramas in the past and has failed miserably. Ironically, the best drama he has is one that was supposed to have been a comedy; Bulletproof. The thing I like about Bulletproof is, even though you do have some funny moments in it, the movie is really a great action film with plenty of suspense and drama.

      Sandler plays a two-bit hoodlum who finds himself on the run after he accidentally brings an undercover cop (played by Damon Wayans) into his boss’s organization. During the attempted arrest, he accidentally shoots Wayans’ character in the head, causing him to go through months of rehabilitation and effectively


      turning his best friend into his worse enemy.

      The movie plays the failed friendship to the max when Sandler is arrested and Wayans is the cop that has to bring him in; doing his best to protect the potential witness against a variety of hitmen, including some who work for the FBI. While the movie is meant to be a comedy, the reality is it is a great drama.

      On one hand, you have Wayans who is upset because he was shot in the head and had to go through painful rehabilitation (even though it did mean meeting his girlfriend). On the other, you have Sandler, who didn’t mean to ...


      • shoot Wayans but is upset with him because he feels betrayed by a guy he thought was his friend (especially when he learns he doesn’t even know Wayans’ real name).

        There are scenes that really tug at your heart, even though I know they aren’t supposed to; like when Wayans talks to Sandlers mom and pretends to still be friends with him so she doesn’t get upset. At the same time, you have a ton of action in this movie; even more than you would expect considering this is supposed to be a comedy.

        You have two men who are essentially up against a crime boss who controls everybody from

        the FBI to the local police departments and they have to find a safe place to spend the night not to mention try to find a place to keep Sandler safe until the trial. And, you would be amazed at who the bad guys turn out to be as the movie progresses.

        If you are a fan of Adam Sandler’s comedies, then this is a movie you’re probably not going to like because it doesn’t have the same format that has made him successful in those comedies. However, if you like a good action film with plenty of drama and the occasional laugh, then this is a film I would recommend seeing.

        There isn’t a dull moment in it.
