    Goofy and easygoing, Starsky & Hutch is not exactly politically correct, but you'd be hard pushed to find a single mean frame.

    There may be no crying need for this movie, but we could use the laughs.

    The movie's advertising tagline ("Starsky & Hutch — they're the Man") needs to be amended. The film belongs, completely and utterly, to Snoop Dogg.
  4. There's a surprising sweetness in the bond between the two cops. The gay subtext of the partnership is used for humour but it's never sniggering or mean.
  5. Wilson's shtick actually works better with Stiller than it did with either of his former partners, Jackie Chan and Eddie Murphy.
  6. Starsky & Hutch is less homage to an old cop show than a tribute to the people who made the movie--a circle pat on the back. And no obvious joke goes untouched.
  7. 10
    This tired old pile of garbage will hopefully be chased out of town soon.

    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. Expand

    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. Expand

    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. Collapse
