Overview

Can a crook go straight without really trying? Jewel thief Miles Logan Martin Lawrence was being chased by the police after a robbery when he was forced to hide a cache of diamonds, worth $20 million, at a construction site. Despite his caution, Miles ended up behind bars anyway; after serving his time, he goes back to retrieve the stones only to discover what was being built: a police station. Miles needs to spend some time at the station to figure out what happened to his nest egg, so he sneaks in, posing as a police detective. Trouble is, he's so convincing that the cops assign him a rookie partner, Carlson Luke Wilson, to put through training. To his surprise, Miles turns out to be a good cop, and the more he tries to find the missing diamonds, the higher he's promoted through the department, until he finds himself in line for a top spot in the detective's division. Supporting Lawrence and Wilson in Blue Streak are Dave Chappelle, William Forsythe, and Nicole Parker.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
An always engaging and frequently hilarious cop comedy, Blue Streak provides erstwhile sitcom star Martin Lawrence with his most satisfying big-screen showcase to date. He plays Miles Logan, a master thief who impersonates a cop in order to penetrate the police station where, several years prior, he hid a $17 million diamond just before getting carted off to prison. Logan's efforts to maintain a convincing front while searching for the hidden jewel generates the film's laughs. Director Les Mayfield Encino Man gives the star plenty of leeway, and Lawrence invests his swaggering, street-smart heist artist with the same brash manner and manic energy that first endeared him to TV audiences. Best of all, he lampoons the type of indestructible cop that's become a fixture in action movies; no cliché is left unspoofed. Shoot-outs and car chases pep things up, and the supporting players are uniformly fine, but Blue Streak is essentially pure, undistilled Martin Lawrence at his sparkling best.
