This weapon wasn’t 2 lethal but I still enjoyed it. I must say my biggest problem with it was Joe Pesci. Okay, okay, okay… I know, that’s he’s Hollywood schtick but he still bothered me, at least until he manned up a bit towards the end of the film. Riggs and Murtaugh are still the ultimate buddy cops. The scene on the toilet almost had me in tears with laughter. Patsy Kensit was stunning as the South African consulate girl. I would like to see more movies with her in it. Mel Gibson always steals the show and arrests not only the bad guys, but me, with laughter. This film is slightly less good than the original and yes some of the Diplomatic Immunity plot is a little thin… okay, maybe anorexic. But I do like this movie and this movie series. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon.
