  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.

Style, Humor, and Teamwork are the keys of this fancy 1970s-styled cop comedy. Full Review »

    A consistently funny film with its heart in the right place. Gently mocks the 1970's, also has a good turn by Snoop dog.
