Spoiler Alert: actor, Martin Lawrence, plays a jewel thief, Miles, who is arrested over the theft of a $17,000,000 diamond he hides on a construction site before being hauled off to jail in cuffs. Upon his release, he seeks to recover the diamond, only to discover the building site he hid it a few years prior, is now a massive building…housing the Los Angeles Police Department.

“Blue Streak” comes from the 1965 British film “The Big Job” which has a very similar premise. “Blue Streak” is one of Lawrence’s funnier films. My favorite joke in this film is when Miles returns from jail and visits his girlfriend, who is angry he lied to her about his job. She yells at him "You told me you were a banker" to which he responds, "No, I said bank robber."
