Overview
Buddy-cops Martin Riggs and Murtaugh are back, trying to keep a key witness (Academy Award® winner Joe Pesci) – and themselves – alive in Lethal Weapon 2.

Murtaugh is still the rock-solid family man. Riggs is still the reckless daredevil, but now he counts his odds before bucking them. He cracks more jokes too. "I thought in this film I could take Riggs in a slightly different direction and maybe have some fun," Gibson says.

Fun it is. And exciting, from its breathless, opening chase through L.A. streets to its raging gun-battle finale. In between, there's a six-story plummet from a window, a booby-trapped toilet, a Houdini-like underwater escape and the incredible destruction of a chic hillside stilt house. "With Mel and Danny, Joe is the third stooge," director Richard Donner says. That makes three drop-dead funny guys. And one of them is lethal.
