Lethal Weapon (1987)

Synopsis: The Cosby Show meets Mad Max.

Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “Fierce, fast and frequently funny, Lethal Weapon fires off round after round of can’t-miss entertainment.”

What Did I Learn?: Cops will allow two highly-skilled martial artists to engage in a fight to the death on a suburban lawn if one of the combatants is a police officer, and really, really hates the other guy.

You Might Like This Movie If: You really enjoy hearing Danny Glover mumble: “I’m getting too old for this shit”.

Really?: Murtaugh (Danny Glover) takes Riggs (Mel Gibson) home to meet the family the same day he realizes he’s a suicidal lunatic. Obviously, they were going to bond and become buddies, but the same day? You’ve gotta be kidding...

Rating: Entertaining action flick – 8/10 stars
