The Last Boy Scout
A private eye (Bruce Willis) and former pro quarterback (Damon Wayans), whose lives have cruelly unraveled, join forces to uncover corruption in pro football in this violent, exaggerated, almost parodic action thriller from writer Shane Black and director Tony Scott. Bullets, punches, explosions, epithets, and one-liners are traded ruthlessly in this bleak, funny rumination on failure and redemption that's full of fresh ideas for an increasingly stale genre. The politically incorrect epilogue caps it all off perfectly. Also with Halle Berry as Wayans' girlfriend, and Taylor Negron as one of the prissiest villains ever. Presented in 2.35 widescreen with DD 5.1 or Dolby 2.0. Extras include textual supplements, the original trailer, and trailers of recommended titles (such as Sylvester Stallone's Cobra).
