I saw it was previewed to play sometime this week, on one of the movie channels. I was hoping I would find it to watch, but now I can't remember when and where it was on.

But, I love this movie, and I thought "Another 48 Hours" was one of the very few sequels that was just as good as the first.

I don't have either movie either, and I can't believe it, I don't even have them on video. Those are 2 I am going to have to get.

They were funny, they were packed with action, and that is what a movie should be to me.

But I thought you didn't like the F-bomb.

"48 HRS" is loaded with them. Remember this classic line:

"I'm your worst (bleep)ing nightmare. I'm a (bleep)er with a badge and that means I've got permission to kick your (bleep)ing (bleep) whenever I feel like it."

I love this movie, but it strikes me as odd that you would.

Sincerely,

John Kilduff

I don't like the f-word. But, I am an adult. I don't like it when I hear it coming out of teenagers mouths, or when I hear a bunch of jerks standing out on the street in front of my house using it. I don't like hearing it on every reality show out there, and bleeped out- like you have no clue what they are saying...but you absolutely know what they just said, and every person says it like it is a nothing word, and throws it around- to me that is being total trash. I don't even watch reality shows- but I see them bleeping out the f-word even on the previews, so it is over used.

Now, in a movie where the character comes from the hardcore streets, and you know it is going to be there, and you aren't letting a child watch it, then I can handle it.

I just don't want to be hanging out with people that talk like that, I think it is completely disrespectful to whomever your with. Now, if you in prison...it doesn't make much difference...people are there for doing worse than swearing, so it suits the atmosphere.

That word is completely overused in today's day and age.

You don't think the f-word suits the atmosphere of a bunch of people who use the f-word? Like teenagers? Adults? Anyways.

48 HRS is damn fine stuff. Another 48 HRS isn't quite as good, but it has that bus scene, which gives it an extra point. It caught Eddie right as he was going down.

I must admit I do swear quite a bit, but never in front of kids. I hate to see adults swearing at them, which is, unfortunately a product of our time.

I still remember when I was at primary school(not that long ago,im 25) if we heard other kids swearing we would tell the teacher, or does that make me the class clipe? but now all the kids seem at home with swearing, it is sad.

I seldom cuss or use the f-word, but it is in some of my favorite movies. 48 Hours was one of my first experiences with a Comedy/Drama that I remember and it was very enjoyable. Eddie Murphy was RAW and he had the edge that made him a star in this movie.

And I want the rest of you cowboys to know something, there's a new sheriff in town. And his name is Reggie Hammond. So Y'all be cool. Right on. [Cool]
