Blue Streak is a comedy crime buddy cop film all wrapped into one. After Martin Lawrence as Miles fails at a robbery he poses as a policeman to try to get a diamond he stashed inside what became a police station. He gets partnered up with Detective Carlson (Luke Wilson).
Lawrence got to exaggerate everything to play up the jokes. Whether that was playing a pizza delivery man with fake teeth or getting to drive crazy in a cop car. That was all part of the joke. Miles liked the fringe benefits of being a cop like going fast down the street, but he didn’t like the other parts like chasing criminals.
This was released when Martin Lawrence was at the top of his game as an actor and is still funny today.
