I met my best friend in 5th grade and we saw this together. Growing up we thought this was going to be us. Truth be told we are still best friends (24 years later) and super excited to see the movie! We use to fight over who Mike Lowery was lol
Why not...I don’t think I’m doing anything that day.
I have a kind of fond relationship with this franchise. The first came out two days before I turned 16, and of course was rated R. My friend had his driver’s license so we went to the theater and tried to buy tickets, but they actually checked ID and refused to sell them to us. We couldn’t be mad, we were breaking the rules.
Now, let it be said that I was a good kid...having a cop dad and two cop grandparents kind of scared me straight right from birth.
My friend was also a good kid...straight A student, never getting in trouble.
So we did something completely out of character, and purchased tickets to “Forrest Gump” which was still in the theater at the time.
We go in and the older gentleman taking tickets looks at ours and says “I hear the version of ‘Forrest Gump’ with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence is real fun,” then winks at us and tells us which theater “Bad Boys” was in.
Pretty cool, and something I remember very vividly.
