#6. Bulletproof

Adam Sandler plays Moses, a car thief with a friend named Keats (played by Daman Wayans), who unknowingly to Moses is an undercover cop. Keats' main goal in this movie is to capture a drug lord named Frank Colton. When he goes with Moses to meet him, Moses find's out hes a cop, and shoots him.

      I've seen all of these movies - I voted for 50 first dates in the poll, but it was so hard to choose. I really, really liked Rein Over Me too. We also recently watched Grown Ups, it was a good one!
