Cops And Robbersons
Bernie Somers wrote this comedy in which Chevy Chase plays a bumbling suburbanite who has watched so many TV cop shows that he thinks he's a crimebuster himself -- which makes life very difficult for the policemen who are using his house to stakeout the counterfeiter who lives next door.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Trapped in a sitcom sensibility, the film never makes the vital connection with the audience that's necessary to spawn a hit."
‑ Leonard Klady, Variety
"Chevy Chase is lucky Cops and Robbersons isn't a sitcom. If it were, it would be canceled as pronto as his talk show was."
‑ Richard Harrington, Washington Post
"Lame comedy is not one of Chevy's best."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"You can't go wrong with Chevy Chase"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Chase, as I've already noted, is stuck with a character who goes nowhere, dooming him from the start."
‑ Scott Renshaw,
"Chevy Chase returns to the anonymous, unmemorable suburban mode that made his earlier movies profitable. And guess what? The results are anonymous and unmemorable."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Know what this sounds like? It sounds like a screenplay."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"The beginning of the end for Chevy Chase."
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
"Yeah, Chevy Chase & Jack Palance. That'll pack 'em in."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Chase cakewalks through the same role he's been playing for the past 10 or so years."
‑ Pamela Bruce, Austin Chronicle
"In Cops and Robbersons, Chevy Chase has an unfortunate chance to prove that there's something even more unfunny than his disastrous talk show."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Not nearly as bad as its critical reception suggested."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A very underrated Chevy Chase comedy."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"You can guess the rest -- but you'll never guess just how amazingly bad it all is."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
