Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan team up for the Warner Bros. police buddy movie Cop Out in this Kevin Smith-directed production. From a script by Robb and Mark Cullen, the story centers around police detectives Jimmy (Willis), a no-B.S. divorced dad, and Paul (Morgan), a crazy-talking loose cannon. Despite nine years as partners, the two lawmen can still sometimes seem like polar opposites -- especially when Paul's unpredictable antics get them suspended without pay. Already strapped for cash and trying to pay for his daughter's wedding, Jimmy decides to sell a rare baseball card… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Joyless, pointless, humorless."
‑ Laremy Legel,
"It just wants to remind audiences of something they've enjoyed before, like looking at an old photo album."
‑ Mary F. Pols, MSN Movies
"Smith's love of long takes where people talk about nothing in particular just isn't right for this movie."
‑ Dave White,
"O roteiro estúpido só não se revela pior do que a direção amadora de Smith, que, também assinando a montagem, não consegue criar lógica ou estabelecer ritmo algum, demonstrando que ainda não aprendeu nem o básico da profissão depois de tantos anos."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"As something of a Kevin Smith fan, this mostly hurt to watch."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"[A] pitifully unfunny 'hommage' to '80s action comedies."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"Cop Out is a little too well-shot to be full-on cheesy and too much a redux to be, well, as fresh as Beverly Hills Cop or Lethal Weapon."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Cop Out is marvelously juvenile, not just in its typical situation comedy and sight gags, but from its ability (even desire) to frequently bring its plot to a shuddering halt so its characters can engage in a few minutes of quiet ridiculousness."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"Cop Out feels like a pilot lost without 20 or so episodes to follow it up."
‑ Mike Barnard, Future Movies UK
"Willis and Morgan are a devilishly delightful down and dirty detective duo, as Kevin Smith releases their combo inner zany outlaws in a kind of Clerks with badges."
‑ Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze
"Smith certainly does his thing here, delivering a film that's part celebration and part parody of the well-worn genre."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"An unholy mess."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard
"Even if many of the jokes in Cop Out aren't all that funny, Smith's facility with crude wordplay is what he salvages from this huge mess of a film."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"A half-baked concept halfheartedly executed."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
" looks as though everyone in the film had a better time making it than the audience has watching it."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
