For those unfamiliar with its setup, the popular sketch comedy television series Reno 911! posits itself as an absurdist parody of the long-running reality program Cops, thus placing outrageous and occasionally violent slapstick against a backdrop of deadpan, documentary-like authenticity for maximum laughs. Reno takes several steps backward, however, by involving itself in both the exploits of the knuckleheaded Nevada law officers and the camera crews that film them.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A verit√ (C) riff on the ‚~Police Academy‚(TM) series is the idea behind cult US sitcom ‚~Reno 911!‚(TM), which, here, is stretched to breaking point for this puerile punt at cinematic glory."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"It will grow on you like a fungus, my friend, and you will laugh more than once."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Reno 911!: Miami has an actual plot that keeps getting in the way of the comical cops-versus-freaks action."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"This is Reno as it should be done for the big screen: bigger, wetter, fouler and even funnier."
‑ Chris Carle, IGN Movies
"There are some laughs here and there, but with some very long gaps in between."
‑ , Daily Mirror [UK]
"Handcuffed by an annoyingly contrived plot that keeps its zanier non sequitur TV giggles in lockdown."
‑ Melissa Anderson, Time Out New York
"Broken up into four episodes of the television show, who knows, this might be a masterpiece. Seen at one sitting, it falls well short of that. Not for lack of trying. More for trying a little too hard."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"Lowbrow hilarity for adult fans of the TV comedy."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
"It's mindless, stupid fun%u2026 and it works. The successful formula? It's short, sharp and never takes itself too seriously"
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"It's the poor man's Police Academy VII: Mission to Moscow."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"The characters are perfectly evolved screwups and the premise (every legit cop is quarantined at a police convention, leaving our heroes in charge of Miami) has potential. It lacks only the discipline of a 30-minute episode."
‑ Scott Brown, Entertainment Weekly
"Running a mere 80 minutes and somehow still feeling heavily padded, this Cops spoof yields a few amusing (if widely spaced) moments but otherwise simply revels in the gratuitous nudity, language and below-the-belt gags that an "R" rating provides."
‑ Brian Lowry, Variety
"Irregular, mas ainda assim capaz de arrancar boas risadas com seu humor nonsense."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Being this unfunny should be illegal."
‑ Anthony Quinn, Independent
"Like some deformed offspring that's been walled up in an attic for 20 years, this resurrects the spirit of Police Academy."
‑ Andrew Pulver, Guardian
