Cop Out was hard to watch. It…um… sucked. It had humor and adventure and really bad guys, with independent but loyal female characters. Some moments provoked a giggle or two.

With me so far? Cop Out cast me nostalgically back to 80s police movies like Beverly Hills Cop, Lethal Weapon, Die Hard (Bruce Willis: “I never saw that movie”) and hell, strangely, Star Wars. Why not? Sounds okay, right?

Cop Out still sucked.

Kevin’s Smith’s latest work is a mish-mash of nonsense that even Bruce Willis can’t redeem. Unless you absolutely love Tracy Morgan’s gummy elucidation, you won’t laugh as much as the script thinks you will. I would have really enjoyed Tracy’s extended ‘homage’ debriefing had he taken the marbles from his mouth. Is this actor missing some teeth? Is there some chew in there that precludes comprehensibility? And by what clever notion does common penis/bowel-movement vulgarity equate humor (outside of a South Park episode)?

And Bruce. Sigh. Lovely, sexy, straight-man Bruce. You need to get together with Harrison Ford and commiserate about Extreme Measures and this miserable wacked-out flop. There was some decent buddy-chemistry with Tracy. We know you tried. You know we still love you, right?

We will still pay good money to watch your cute, vulnerable/tough guy shtick.

Just please, don’t do these lightweight jobs that should reasonably embarrass everyone with their names in the credits.

Lastly. Kevin Smith, we won’t hold this against you. We KNOW you can do subversive and funny. This just wasn’t it.

Somewhere between a C+ and B-, but we recommend you wait for the DVD.

    Would you say that the RunPee time for CopOut is pretty much any time during the movie?

    LOL. In a sense. Sort of. I actually had to look hard for PeeTimes. Since this movie is such a mish-mash, it was tough to find scenes that lasted long enough to be summed up in a blurb.

    But since nothing is really original in this flick, one can essentially leave any time and be able to pick up the plot. No huge twists to worry about. 🙂

    There’s a special place in cinema heaven, Jilly for sitting through this movie. I secured my place by sitting through Land Of The Lost with Will Ferrell.

    I saw the movie and for the first time in my life I envied my feet. They were asleep.

    Cop Out? Really “…Somewhere between a C+ and B-…”
