I will admit that I did not have very high hopes for Cop Out when I first saw the trailers. The latest trailer looked more promising but I was still not sure that I would really like this film. I am happy to say that I was very pleasantly surprised. This movie was hilarious! Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan have surprisingly good chemistry. The scenes with Seann William Scott were just fantastic.
The films plot centers around Jimmy Monroe (played by Bruce Willis) and Paul Hodges (played by Tracy Morgan), two cops who are suspended from the NYPD at the start of the film. Jimmy needs to come up with $48,000 to pay for his daughters dream wedding so he decides to sell his most valuable baseball card. While at the card shop to have the card appraised he is robbed of both the card and Paul’s gun that he had loaned him. Seann William Scott plays Dave, one of the guys that rob him. Jimmy and Paul set out to retrieve the stolen card and gun on their own. Along the way they catch Dave in an amusing scene with a gun-toting homeowner. They get information from the most successful car thief in the city, another side-splitting scene. They also make a deal with a drug dealer, rescue a beautiful woman, find out that Paul’s wife is cheating on him (maybe), and get involved in a shoot out.
I laughed out loud more than I have in a while at a film. Kevin Smith did a great job as director. The story line was entertaining and the acting was good. If you need a good laugh go see this movie.
