The Last Boy Scout is actually one of the last feel-good eighties action movies, with those awesome one-liners, silly script and phenomenal characters. Right up there with Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, Tango and Cash and other action movies that you can watch a hundred times and still have good time. Bruce Willis with Damon Wayans (Bulletproof, Major Payne, Damon) are so funny, each in his own way and they were the reason why this movie worked so well. Throw in Halle Berry and an evil plot and you got yourself a great movie. And one more thing, this movie uses a lot of dirty language, not like todays politically correct action movies where everything is so clean and neat, even the jokes. This classic buddy cop movie is a must, especially if you’re a fan of the genre.
