I am really shocked by what some reviewers have written about Cop Out. I feel that people no longer watch Kevin Smith movies and enjoy them for what they are. They simply want to attack him for not being academy award quality (which isn't always saying much, sorry).
Cop Out is extremely funny. I was literally in tears with the amount of laughter. Bruce and Tracy are a great pair in this flick, they are a perfect cop duo. You have the classic tough guy exterior with Bruce Willis and the super emotional Tracy Morgan. You can't help but smirk when you see Tracy on the screen bantering on about something crazy and Bruce Willis just gives him his best "What you talkin' about" stare.
It is very clever in its movie references, action film based or other. It takes a very mature form of comedy to reference such a large collection of classics. The opening scene contains Tracy Morgan interrogating a criminal and he is spouting out a million movie quotes from every genre. It's a fun challenge to see if you recognize them *wink*.
This is a smart comedy with everything you would expect from a Cop Movie. It feels extremely Lethal Weapon meets Miami Vice. I must also say that if you’re feeling a bit nostalgic the movie soundtrack is a perfect throw back.
You must see this movie!! but I warn you, you won’t appreciate it unless you’ve seen some cop movies in the past!
