This movie was a bit mercurial--it started of terrible, then it seemed as if it was going to be a decent movie, then it changed for the worse.
Racist officer Jack Moony (Bob Hoskins) suffers a heart attack and receives a heart transplant from African-American lawyer Napoleon Stone (Denzel Washington). In came the extremely racist and crude jokes from his coworkers. This heart transplant came with more than bad jokes it came with the ghost of Napoleon Stone.
Initially, Denzel was hamming it up as Napoleon and it was uncomfortable to watch Denzel behave in such a manner. Then, the movie seemed to take a turn for the best: the dialogue got better, the plot made sense and all was right. Then, just as suddenly the movie became a chore to watch. The plot had holes and characters were behaving badly. The movie fizzled out even if it was a happy ending.
