Bad Boys for Life is nearly here. Judging by the trailer, the third chapter of the franchise looks like it could be the best one yet.

Before there was Fast and Furious, Rush Hour and Mission Impossible, there was Bad Boys – a buddy-cop comedy that reinvigorated the action genre.

Sure, the two-film franchise isn’t exactly award-winning or popular with the critics, however, it was, to us millennials, a film of our childhoods.


Detective Mike Lowrey (played by Will Smith) and Detective Marcus Bennett (played by Martin Lawerence) were like uncles to me.

Now it’s time for a family reunion as Bad Boys for Life (often dubbed as Bad Boys 3) comes to cinemas in January 2020 –which is 25 years after the original! I can hardly contain my excitement.

In fact, I’m so excited I’m just going to have to…“Alexa, play Bad Boys by Inner Circle”.
