Scene from this movie Adam Sandler and Damon Wayans have been fast friends for a year now. They're partners in petty crimes, mostly grand theft auto. Feeling magnanimous towards his pal one day, Sandler brings Wayans a taste of some bigger action-working with drug kingpin James Caan.

Wayans, it turns out, is an undercover cop who's been using Sandler to get close to Caan for a big bust. But when the heat comes down, things go wrong. Through a comedy of errors, Sandler fires his gun, striking Wayans in the forehead. Sandler and Wayans become fellow fugitives, running from assailants on both sides of the law. -- Desson Howe
