Bad Boys Movies Script

Bad Boys is a 1995 American action film produced by Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer, producers of Top Gun and Beverly Hills Cop, directed by Michael Bay in his directorial debut, and starring Martin Lawrence, Will Smith, Téa Leoni and Tchéky Karyo. It spawned a 2003 film sequel, Bad Boys II.

In the film’s early stages of development, Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer initially envisioned Dana Carvey and Jon Lovitz in the roles. When the film was written for Carvey and Lovitz, the original title for Bad Boys was Bulletproof HeartsArsenio Hall turned down the role of Mike Lowrey and cites that choice as the worst mistake he has ever made. The role eventually went to Will Smith.

Both Martin Lawrence and Will Smith were starring in their own hit TV shows, Martin and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, when filming Bad BoysThe Fresh Prince of Bel-Air even references the film in an episode. In the season 6, episode 20, called “I Stank Horse”, Nicholas “Nicky” Banks tells Will that his parents will not let him watch Bad Boys, to which Will replies, “Oh, whatcha gonna do?”

Improvisation

Director Michael Bay did not like the script and often engaged Smith and Lawrence in discussions about how the dialogue and scenes could improve. He often allowed them to improvise while the cameras were rolling. He secretly told Smith to call Lawrence a bitch before the car scene. The whole “two bitches in the sea” was improvised, as was Martin’s comment when Téa Leoni called him gay.

The scene in the convenience store, wherein the clerk puts a gun to Burnett and Lowrey’s heads and yells, telling them to “Freeze, mother bitches!”, is also improvised. They came up with: “No, you freeze, bitch! Now back up, put the gun down and get me a pack of Tropical Fruit Bubbalicious”. “And some Skittles.”

According to Michael Bay in the DVD commentary, at the end of the film when Mike (Smith) and Marcus (Lawrence) are recuperating, Mike says “I love you, man.” Bay claims that Smith refused to say the line, causing the director and actor to argue back and forth over the line. Bay wanted Smith to say the line as he felt it summed up the friendship between the cops. After their argument had lasted for half of the day’s shoot and much of the crew was ready to pack up, a fed up Bay told Smith to do whatever he wanted, after which Smith changed his mind and agreed to say the line.
