Slice: Riggs and Murtaugh ... `Lethal Weapon 5' (!!)

I thought it was going to be a boring day for the movies.

When what do my wandering eyes find before me?

"Lethal Weapon 5" (!!!!!) is on the fast track, or so says Columbus Short (of movies like Stomp the Yard, Save the Last Dance 2, etc. -- we can't win them all...).

While "Lethal Weapon 4" ought to be erased from our collective consciousness, the three LW's before brought me so much joy as a child that I'll take any reason to see Riggs and Murtaugh again -- no doubt flanked by a couple younger cops who'll make me cringe.

The interview with Short:

I've always loved this clip about the original opening scene of "Lethal Weapon." Oh, how I miss good buddy cop movies.
