Films like Beverly Hills Cop and 48 Hours were popular in the 80’s and for some reason Warner Brothers thinks they can bring us something new with the buddy cop comedy Cop Out. A long time New York cop played by Bruce Willis has his rare mint 1952 Andy Pafko baseball card stolen by a petty crook played by Seann William Scott while he was trying to sell it to pay for his daughter’s 50 thousand dollar wedding. In the mean time his partner played by Tracy Morgan is trying to find out if his wife is having an affair while both are on the trail of Mexican criminals. As predicted this film has plenty of action and a couple good laughs. (Three that I can think of right now) Willis and Morgan seem to be having fun with some improvised comedy but after about 45 minutes the goofing around soon gets old. Even though Tracy Morgan did receive most of the laughs (and there weren’t that many) the writers thought it would be funny for him to throw out punch lines from movies at different times. I can hear many of the people who paid 10 dollars to see this movie also throwing out film lines at the ticket office asking for a refund saying “Show me the money”. Since I didn’t have to pay for a ticket I’m not complaining of not receiving my money’s worth so I’ll give it a C- rating.
This movie has been given a R rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
