Starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson in the title roles, this kitschy tongue-in cheek action comedy is based on the popular 1970s cop show of the same name. Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson (Wilson) and Dave Starsky (Stiller) are a tough pair of plain-clothes cops who drive a red and white Ford Torino and solve cases with the assistance of their informant, Huggy Bear (Snoop Dogg). While investigating their latest case, the duo realize that the culprit is none other than Reese Feldman (Vince Vaughn), the criminal involved in their first bust.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Too amiable to cook up anything truly memorable..."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Moves slowly and without much grace; it tries to jiggle laughs out of us instead of letting them flow freely."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek,
"Silly, but lots of fun for older teens."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"A buddy cop movie filled with genuine laughs."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"Not exactly politically correct, but you'd be hard pushed to find a single mean frame."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"Stiller and Wilson look bewildered."
‑ Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture
"There is a comic-book devouring, Playboy-stashing adolescent male heart thumping rather sweetly at the core of this homage-spoof."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"It's basically a time killer with a lot of forgettable jokes that go on way too long many times..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"The film is as clever as it is silly, more warmhearted than sentimental and just as irreverent as it is nostalgic."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"Todd Phillips strikes nostalgic gold, squeezing just enough comedy out of the buddy cop formula to keep it afloat during its brisk 95-minute runtime."
‑ Jason Zingale,
"A sterling supporting cast -- down to the tiniest bit parts -- provides enough astringent intelligence to make the slobbering sentimentality go down with ease."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"A scattershot cop comedy that aims its parodistic firepower not at any single target -- least of all its namesake -- but at an entire decade."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Stiller and Wilson are far less serious than their television role models (Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul) but still drive the hell out of the souped-up Ford Gran Torino muscle car that boosted the show's visual appeal."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Cartoonish but clever, with the bulk of the fun coming when Wilson's wry wit meets Stiller's impatient officiousness head-on. Sophomoric, yet probably the best of the recent TV retreads."
‑ Kam Williams, Princeton Town Topics
"Had the script actually had a direction it would've helped."
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
