Earl Montgomery is a Los Angeles Police Department (L.A.P.D.) wannabe who is expelled from the police academy after creating chaos in a simulated car chase. Hank Rafferty is a real L.A.P.D. officer who is in an emotional state of shock after facing the sudden murder of his partner, Charlie, by a gang breaking into a high-security warehouse. One day, these two unlucky individuals cross paths near a roadside traffic stop as the racial altercation quickly becomes violent. Earl claims that Hank beat him up, bringing bad media publicity onto the L.A.P.D., thus forcing the department to kick Hank out of the force as well as sending him to prison for six months for aggravated assault.

After being released from prison, Hank finds himself a job as a security guard in order to continue his investigation of his partner's murder but discovers to his annoyance that he is partnered with Earl who is also a security guard working for the same firm. Enemies become allies as Earl and Hank end up uncovering an elite smuggling network led by Charlie's murderer and criminal mastermind, Nash, and his gang of thugs.

Although Earl and Hank are at the lowest level in the law enforcement community, they still want to use their power to put Nash to justice, so the two take matters into their own hands and steal some of Nash's smuggled merchandise in the form of kegs made from an extraterrestrial alloy that may be worth a fortune. These two unlikely partners also happen to be on the run from the L.A.P.D. as Hank suspects there may be a mole in the force. Earl and Hank, partners-in-crime, continue to develop their chemistry instead of killing each other over the past, and they just might bring Nash to justice for his crimes.
