Bad Boys for Life was awesome. I had so much fun watching this movie that I forgot I was working.
With 17 years passing since the last Bad Boys, I wondered if they’d still have their great chemistry. They certainly do. Smith and Lawrence were both great. Again. Looking back and seeing these guys in these roles for 25 years now really makes me feel old, yet they look fabulous. Still.
It was enjoyable from the beginning to end. Movies that run over 2 hours usually lose me; I get bored way too quickly and fall asleep. Not Bad Boys for Life — I was really into the storyline, which has a lot of twists and turns I wasn’t expecting. There is a lot of humor, just like always, but there is also a tender side to this one that gave it another layer.
I’m not going to include any spoilers, but I really enjoyed how they wove it all together. Make sure to not leave the theater when the credits start. They stuck a little scene in there that will explain what I’m talking about. (20-ish seconds into the credits.)
It wasn’t just Smith and Lawrence that made it great. The supporting cast was just as good. The police force created a new unit (AMMO). Within that unit is some incredible talent which helped brighten the big screen even more. Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, and Charles Melton were fantastic. They’re all young ones, but they had chemistry with Smith and Lawrence as if they’d been with them for 25 years. The age jokes are hilarious!
I don’t think you can go wrong with this movie. I’d recommend it to anyone.
About The Peetimes: The 1st and 3rd Peetimes are your best bet. I only submitted the 2nd one for Emergencies.
There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Bad Boys for Life. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
