'''''The Last Boy Scout''''' is a 1991 action film, directed by Creator/TonyScott and written by Creator/ShaneBlack, starring Creator/BruceWillis as a former Secret Service agent, now working as a private detective, and Damon Wayans as a retired professional football player. The two join forces to solve the murder of Wayans' character’s girlfriend (played by the then-obscure Creator/HalleBerry). The entire film consists of often violent action scenes and an endless parade of one-liners.

Added DiffLines:

* DarkerAndEdgier: Shane Black's original script, by all accounts, is less humorous, more personal, and even more violent and cynical than the final film.

* {{Gorn}}: Brutal moments punctuated by humor. There is a scene where Bruce Willis ''punches a guy's nose through his brain'' (said guy is a young Creator/KimCoates in a very early example of his career as a ChronicallyKilledActor). Also the infamous helicopter scene.

* TheConspiracy: [[spoiler:Sheldon Marcone intends to legalize sports gambling by buying votes from a Senate committee investigating gambling in sports. Senator Baynard was the chairman of the committee who holds the deciding vote. When Marcone tries to buy his vote, Baynard demanded $6 million or he will go to the police. Marcone decided that it is much cheaper to kill the Senator, and frames Joe (who previously worked for him) as Baynard's killer.]]
