I seen this with my movie going buddy she thought it may not of received a fair shake after seeing something as deep as Brooklyn's Finest. However I disagree, it was just the kind of movie I like after a dramatic movie it was lighthearted and engaging.
Seann William Scott makes the movie for me as far as supporting roles go he and Rashida Jones were hilarious in their portrayals of their intended characters.
The subplots meshed well together, the goofy antagonizing rival cops(Pollack, Brody), Morgan's character's dilemma as well as Willis and his daughter's wedding with a great spot with Jason Lee.
Bottom Line: It's a buddy cop movie, that is DEFINITELY a comedy. Don't go in expecting a thriller or drama and you'll be fine. 2 stars for a classic tv/hollywood rating
I loved Richard Gere in this, his character seemed to be cliche but was far from it in most films with cop drama. You can feel Ethan Hawke's emotion during his scenes the person I seen the film with despised his character while I seen a need for him to do what he was doing this disagreement between us made us connect over the film even further after the credits rolled.
Wesley Snipes did a nice job with his role as Caz it wasn't the typical gangster outlook which I appreciated.
Don Cheadle is a great actor but he won me over with this role his scenes with Ellen Barkin and Will Patton in particular.
Bottom line: Gripping and engaging a must see for fans of the genre and at least a rental for those who are not. 3 1/2 stars possibly 4 by tv/hollywood ratings
Thank you for reading the review - CR
It's a wedding comedy, it's very funny in parts the audience I seen it with laughed out loud at several moments in the film. I think some of Carlos Mencia's dramatic moments weren't the strongest, but they were by no means the worst I've seen this year in film, especially comedic films.
Go with a light heart and be prepared to laugh.
Bottom line: worth a watch 2.5 stars if we were going by classic tv/hollywood ratings systems
