Comedy starring John Candy. Frank Dooley (Candy) is an ex-cop, thrown out of the force after being framed by corrupt colleagues. Norman Kane (Eugene Levy) is an out-of-work attorney who quit because he lost his nerve. Both men turn to a private security firm to find employment, but everything goes quickly wrong when the first warehouse they guard gets robbed. Dooley and Kane suspect foul-play, and there's something fishy about the security firm's union too. The two men decide to investigate, and uncover intrigue and conspiracy, with only their ingenuity and resourcefulness keeping them alive.

This movie is a classic 80's comedy if you ask me, with a nice bit of action in it too and a good story. John Candy and Eugene Levy are great together as the odd couple partnered as security guards with John Candy as an ex-policeman who loses his job and Levy as a lawyer who is not doing too good in court, and also has to seek another job. They both end up working for a security company where many of the people who they take the introduction course with arent the best recruits to be security guards. But that is also what makes this movie so funny, not just the main characters but the people around them! If you like John Candy and Eugene Levy this is a must see, and if not just watch it to have a great laugh.

Ah, the 80's comedy. An era and genre loved and hated by those who were there at the time and looked back at with amusement all these years later. Luckily, this film falls into the 'good' camp. Who can not enjoy seeing the usually mild-mannered-and-repressed-dad-from-American-Pie Eugene Levy dressed up as a gay biker camping it up for all he's worth with a transexual John Candy trading banter with each other while trying to evade the cops? This movie has loads of memorable scenes such as this with easily likeable characters, well defined good and bad guys and an easy to follow plot. Its not easy to create good character gags over a short space of time, but this film manages to do it and avoids a lot of the traps that other 80's comedies did by relying on visual and verbal gags alone. It's nothing new but its definately worth buying to see more than once.

A great film. Very funny. A must for John Candy fans. I have always enjoyed his films and this is no exception. Plenty of action with plenty of hilarious senarios.

Really enjoyable comedy Eugene Levy and John Candy make a great duo as the bumbling security guards, also features a young Meg Ryan in one of her earlier roles. Haven't seen this since I watched on tv in the early 90's and although it doesn't make me lol like it used to back in the day I still thoroughly enjoyed it.

You will notice that most of the reviews for the witty John Candy/Eugene Levy “Armed And Dangerous” are for the ‘DVD’. But if you want to upgrade to BLU RAY and you live in the UK - it poses a problem...

The American BLU RAY issue on Image Entertainment is REGION A LOCKED - so it won't play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are). And at present (March 2014) there appears to be no European or Region B alternative.

Until it gets a release on this side of the pond - Region Coding restrictions are denying you the BLU RAY I'm afraid...
