Cop Out

Starring: Bruce Willis, Tracy Morgan, Jason Lee, Adam Brody, Kevin Pollack, Seann William Scott.
Genre: Comedy

This is the first film that Kevin Smith directed, but didn't write. Being a major Kevin Smith fan (my favourites are Clerks, Chasing Amy, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back) I had to see this. After a slow start, which made me think the whole movie would be shit, this begins to pick up about a quarter of the way in. Praise Jesus. I wanted this to be good. It’s not good, but it is funny; typical of Smith’s work (although he didn’t write the screenplay) there are many film references peppered throughout, and most of all, Tracy Morgan stops screaming his lines after the first few scenes. The best thing about this film is Seann William Scott (from Dude, Where's My Car? and many other silly comedies) who pretty much steals (LOL! He plays a robber in this!) every scene he's in. Overall, an enjoyable buddy cop comedy flick. It was universally panned by critics upon its cinematic release, but it's really not as bad as they made it out to be. See it if only for Seann William Scott's hilarious performance.
