    It's the ideal capper for a cop comedy with a refreshingly wry, adult and humane attitude.

    Combines silly stuff about life in Los Angeles with buoyant energy, a couple of chases worthy of the Keystone Kops and quick-witted actors playing droll characters with obvious affection.
  3. Is it, you know, fun? At times. Yet there's a rote quality to the way this half-dumb, half-sly movie resolves itself into an intentional debauch, a pileup of villainy and heavy metal. The only California dream it leaves you with is one of wretched excess.

    One of the most lazily scripted, poorly structured, smugly stereotyped star vehicles in recent memory. Bizarrely, this seems to be the point.

    Escapism with a human touch -- it feels lived-in.
  6. No one comes out of Hollywood Homicide looking good, but the film fades fast.

    Yup, Hollywood Homicide”rips off practically every cop movie out there. My god in heaven, did anyone making this film have an original thought in their lives?

    Hollywood Homicide is easily one of my all time favorite movies, my wife and I watch it regularly, and it is a great showcase of HarrisonHollywood Homicide is easily one of my all time favorite movies, my wife and I watch it regularly, and it is a great showcase of Harrison Ford's talents (Josh Heartnett is good too, naturally). It starts out very slowly, but ends up being gut-bustingly funny. Now, of course, I laugh my keister off the whole way through as the nuances of the movie and acting have been inscribed in my funny bone. Very classy storytelling. Expand

    Hollywood Homicide isn't so much an awful comedy as it as an astonishingly dull buddy cop flick. Nothing feels natural, from the "quirky" jobsHollywood Homicide isn't so much an awful comedy as it as an astonishingly dull buddy cop flick. Nothing feels natural, from the "quirky" jobs that the cops have on the side, to the "goofy" dialogue they have, to the "far-fetched" murder mystery. It's an incredibly forced farce. Expand

    One of the worst movies that I watched this year. What a waste of talent, time and money. Actors seemed to be going through the motions.
