4.0 out of 5 stars John Candy and Eugene Levy is brilliant in this movie!
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...

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good family comedy, 26 May 2011

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Armed And Dangerous" on BLU RAY - Compatibility Issues With This 'US-ONLY' Title..., 20 Mar 2014

(VINE VOICE)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (TOP 50 REVIEWER)   
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...

A very early Meg Ryan stars in this comical, light-hearted, fun film. Essential for your Meg Ryan collection but I don't suppose we'll watch it that often.
