Product Description:

Jack Cates (Nick Nolte) is a tough, super-jaded cop who springs a hard luck robber, Reggie Hammond (Eddie Murphy), from jail for two days to help nab his former partners. The two men form a kind of friendship (based on mutual hatred) as they chase a trio of remorseless villains through the streets of San Francisco and Cates finds that Hammond's streetwise method of finding the criminals is possibly even more effective than his own by-the-book police procedures. Rounded characters and crackling comedy balance out this this box-office hit. A sequel, ANOTHER 48 HOURS, was produced in 1990.

Plot Synopsis:

A tough detective teams up with a petty criminal who's been released from prison for two days to help catch his former cohorts. The jailbird dons an Armani suit and the unlikely duo dashes around San Francisco tracking the bad guys and trading insults. After surviving a few high-speed car chases and several shoot-outs, they overcome their mutual dislike for each other and begin to bond.
