Movie Info

Loosely based on former policeman Joseph Wambaugh's humorous novel, The Choirboys determinedly explores the stunted interior lives of a large crew of callous, bigoted L.A. policemen. These men get together to lend one another emotional support. However, the means they choose for this do not enhance their sensitivity or their judgement. When one of them has a really bad day, he asks his buddies to come to "choir practice," and they get together for alcoholic benders of fairly epic proportions.

This is not one of Aldrich's better films.

A chaotic and fairly unlikable adaptation.

Audience Reviews for The Choirboys

A bit dated but involving version of Wambaugh's novel. Excellent performances from a great cast of character actors.

Unbelievably offensive 70s "comedy" that seems to think that racism and police brutality is hilarious. The decent cast (all at a very early stage in their careers) would probably be less ashamed of appearing in hardcore bestial porn.
