Cop Out Review
Cop out is Kevin Smiths (Clerks, Zack & Miri Make a Porno) first directed film he hasn't written, instead being written by Rob & Mark Cullen (Las Vegas.) Bruce Willis (Die Hard) plays Jimmy Monroe alongside Tracey Morgan (30 Rock) who plays Paul Hodge, two Cops who are down on there luck in this movie that seems to be more or less a 2000s Lethal Weapon.
After Jimmy & Paul both get suspended Jimmy needs to get some money to be able to pay for his daughters wedding. He tries to sell a rare baseball card at a pawn shop but it gets stolen as hes in the shop. The two track down who stole the card and unravel a deeper conspiracy.
The soundtrack has some good songs on it and the film is put together well enough, its edited with that cop movie feel. Thankfully not Cop Movie enough to make the likes of Bad Boys.
Cop Out isn't a great movie but its a fun ride and rather funny at points. Some jokes feel fresh while most feel old and dry, the Cop plot its self is terrible and annoying to watch, but the jokes do make this worth a watch.
