  1. A movie that makes little sense, is dumb when it's not being stupid and yet is still at times laugh-out-loud funny.

    Okay, there are worse movies out there, but I'm hard-pressed to figure out why I'd waste my time and money watching something that's a half-baked retread of better movies I can stream from Netflix.

    Cop Out seems aptly named. It’s not personal. It’s barely even a movie. It’s a fire hydrant that the director and his stars use for exterior shots.
  4. It's a performance in search of a movie.
  5. There are a few hilarious bits, but even those are drowned out by constant gunfire and Morgan’s motormouthing. Willis is going through the motions; Scott is funny, if irritating; Morgan is irritating and not so funny.
  6. A buddy cop film in which one of the cops continually quotes dialogue espoused by fictional cops, in everything from "Heat" to "RoboCop," and not once is it funny.
  7. 0
    With so much junk littering the screen these days, the movie business looks like a garbage strike, and it’s beginning to smell, too. The latest pollution from the celluloid dumpster is sub-mental horror called Cop Out.

    Not drop-dead hilarious, but it was still a funny ride from start to finish. I wouldn't mind seeing it again.

    COP OUT is a stupid movie that isn't even funny, but somehow, I enjoyed watching it. I don't know how I enjoyed it, but I did.
