Kevin Smith takes on the cop genre in “Cop Out”, a film that used to be funnier when it was going under the title of “A Couple of Dicks”, though honestly neither Bruce Willis or Tracy Morgan’s character really comes across as dicks in the movie, and since they’re cops, they don’t qualify as private detectives aka private dicks. So I guess the original title never really made much sense. Then again, it would still be a tad funnier, though this trailer ain’t bad. I wasn’t exactly LOL’ing, as the kids would say, but I had a couple of chuckles or two.
Two longtime NYPD partners on the trail of a stolen, rare, mint-condition baseball card find themselves up against a merciless, memorabilia-obsessed gangster. Jimmy (Bruce Willis) is the veteran detective whose missing collectible is his only hope to pay for his daughter’s upcoming wedding, and Paul (Tracy Morgan) is his “partner-against-crime” whose preoccupation with his wife’s alleged infidelity makes it hard for him to keep his eye on the ball.
Starring Bruce Willis, Tracy Morgan, Adam Brody, Kevin Pollak, Guillermo Diaz, Seann William Scott, Jason Lee, Ana de la Reguera, and directed by Kevin Smith. Via Apple.
