Meine zehn liebsten Action-Komödien

Heute mal wieder eine kleine Liste für zwischendurch. Aus der Hüfte geschossen, wenn man so will, denn es geht um meine zehn liebsten Actionkomödien. Über den einen oder anderen Film in der Liste ließe sich sicherlich streiten, ob er in diese Liste gehört (Kenner werden es vermutlich merken), aber grundsätzlich ging es mir darum, mal zu schauen, ob ich aus dem Stehgreif zehn Filme dieses Genre zusammen bekomme, die ich alle besser finde als Bad Boys I und/oder II (der eine oder andere weiß, worauf ich mich hier beziehe 😉 ). Also: los gehts, viel Spaß mit der Liste!
