  1. Ends with a bunch of goofy outtakes--which are as dismal as the rest of the movie. How do you decide what to leave out when there's nothing worth keeping in?

    This depressingly uninspired action-comedy (based on the 1975–79 TV series) is Hollywood’s latest McMovie -- name-brand recognition as raison d’être or, if you will, creative bankruptcy on a very large scale.
  3. 25
    The scattershot nature of the script, which feels as if it had been made up on the spot, leaves the actors looking like they're enjoying some private joke not shared with the audience. Self-indulgent does not even begin to describe it.
  4. 10
    This tired old pile of garbage will hopefully be chased out of town soon.

    Starsky has excellent comedy and action. The movie is well acted and the story is interesting as well.
    Vince Vaughn and Snoop Dogg give
    amusing supporting roles in the movie as well. Full Review »

    Starsky is hilarious and has cool action as well. The cast are all funny comedians and they mesh well
    throughout the movie. Starsky and Hutch
    is one of Ben Stiller's best movies. Full Review »

    Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson and even more style as Starsky and Hutch than the other movies they have been in together. Style, Humor, and Teamwork are the keys of this fancy 1970s-styled cop comedy. Full Review »
