Consensus: Cop Out is a cliched buddy action/comedy that suffers from stale gags and slack pacing.

Laremy Legel

Joyless, pointless, humorless.

It just wants to remind audiences of something they've enjoyed before, like looking at an old photo album.

Smith's love of long takes where people talk about nothing in particular just isn't right for this movie.

[A] pitifully unfunny 'hommage' to '80s action comedies.

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.

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.

Smith certainly does his thing here, delivering a film that's part celebration and part parody of the well-worn genre.

An unholy mess.

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.

I guess Kevin Smith is done making good films.

A few good jokes. Good performances by Guillermo Diaz as the bad guy and Sean William Scott as a hyper, druggie kind of Hermes trickster. The cops' rapport… More

Two cops who engage in the schtick that only cops in movies engage in (I hope) pursue a drug dealer. I didn't know that Kevin Smith could make a film this… More
