Plot

Gerry Boyle's tactics may be unconventional, but they work surprisingly well for a cop in a small town. He's loud, confrontational, and unafraid of being crude, but that's earned him the endearment of his community. So it comes as little surprise that he's unimpressed by straight-laced FBI agent Wendell Everett. Everett is on the trail of a major cocaine smuggling ring, but Boyle has little interest in tackling a problem that doesn't affect his community directly. But as the two learn to work together, they become united in their desire to take down the corrupt cops leading the local force.
