Some of the more recent films include the Bad Boys franchise of movies with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, Critical Thinking with John Leguizamo, The Baker and the Beauty with Nathalie Kelley, and The Laundromat with Meryl Streep, Antonio Banderas and Gary Oldman. Going back in time, Miami-Dade also played host to movies such as Marley and Me, Ali, 2 Fast 2 Furious, The Birdcage, Analyze This, Miami Blues, and Porky’s.
