"The Boys are Back in Town..."

I have enjoyed rewatching the following two crime action thrillers many many times.

Besides the reasonably good plot, witty dialogue, & extreme gun-blazing action sequences, I never seem to get tired in listening to the same signature song/music routine, "The Boys are Back in Town...", by The Bus Boys.

For me, the song/music routine was the most memorable. Maybe I just have a soft spot for good music, especially one that has a rock & roll edge.

In a nut shell, the two movies essentially revolved around the adventurous exploits of a tough, maverick cop, Jack (played by Nick Nolte) who had to team up, somewhat reluctantly, with a wise-cracking, loud-mouthed convict, Reggie (played by Eddie Murphy), who was specially released from jail for 48 hours, to help catch the bad guys ~ in the first movie, a cop killer; in the second, a ruthless but mysterious drug lord with the nickname "Iceman". Reggie was privy to both cases.
