Accompanied by a cheesily ever-present Eighties saxophone score, Lethal Weapon is endearing nonetheless because of the partnership between crazy eyeball-popping Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) and sensible Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover). They come to each other’s rescue on and off the job — Riggs saving Murtaugh from feeling old and boring and Murtaugh savings Riggs from a suicidal mania he can barely seem to contain. It’s good cop/bad cop, black cop/white cop, family-man cop/single-guy cop — they’re opposites in every way. Naturally, they love each other.
