Trivia

Damon Wayans played a character named Jack Carter (his actual name, as opposed to his undercover name Keats). Jack Carter is the name of an actor who played on several episodes of Fantasy Island (1977). A main character on the series was named "Tattoo". In the warehouse scene, when "Keats" is accused of being a cop by a Hispanic male, "Keats" refers to him as "Tattoo". See more »

Goofs

When Moses and Keats arrive at Colton's house in the final act, a henchman confiscates Keats' gun. Moses then shoots the henchman, who falls into the pool. In the next shot, Keats is seen holding his gun which would have fallen in the pool, and Keats appears perfectly dry, therefore he did not retrieve his gun from the pool. See more »

Half action, Half comedy, TOTALLY ENTERTAINING!
23 March 2003 | by Lethal_K_MMXSee all my reviews

Bulletproof is one of the funniest and action filled movies I have ever seen in a long time, and Damon Wayans and Adam Sandler are a great team, and James Caan is also good as the drug boss Frank Colton. The whole cast kept me laughing, and the action kept the adrenaline running.
