Movie Info

In this comedy, police detectives on the trail of a dangerous criminal are confronted with a new and unexpected danger: a typical suburban family. Osborn (Robert Davi) is a underworld figure with plenty of blood on his hands who, in hopes of keeping his dealings quiet, is operating out of an unassuming home in the suburbs. The police are determined to put Osborn behind bars, so rough-hewn veteran cop Jake Stone (Jack Palance) and his young partner Tony Moore (David Barry Gray) are assigned to

Trapped in a sitcom sensibility, the film never makes the vital connection with the audience that's necessary to spawn a hit.

Chevy Chase returns to the anonymous, unmemorable suburban mode that made his earlier movies profitable. And guess what? The results are anonymous and unmemorable.

In Cops and Robbersons, Chevy Chase has an unfortunate chance to prove that there's something even more unfunny than his disastrous talk show.

Chevy Chase is lucky Cops and Robbersons isn't a sitcom. If it were, it would be canceled as pronto as his talk show was.

Not nearly as bad as its critical reception suggested.

Lame comedy is not one of Chevy's best.

The beginning of the end for Chevy Chase.

A very underrated Chevy Chase comedy.

Yeah, Chevy Chase & Jack Palance. That'll pack 'em in.

You can guess the rest -- but you'll never guess just how amazingly bad it all is.

Chase, as I've already noted, is stuck with a character who goes nowhere, dooming him from the start.

Chase cakewalks through the same role he's been playing for the past 10 or so years.

Audience Reviews for Cops And Robbersons

Silly and nonsensical but except for Chevy Chase acting like a total moron for most of the running time not that bad.

This is an underrated comedy that was really entertaining for what it was. I don't believe it deserved the flack it received. This is a fun, mindless comedy that has a pretty good cast. I enjoyed the film for what it was, and I really don't think it deserved the flack it received. This is an underrated film that has some good moments, a pretty interesting plot and decent acting. This is one of Chevy Chase's last good film roles, and he would stop making good comedies in the years to come. This film biggest strength is Jack Palance who gives this film its charm. I really liked him in this one, and thought he made the film as good as it was. If you're looking for a fun, underrated comedy, then check this one out. Quite enjoyable if you're in the mood, and pretty good considering all the negative reviews. This is a good film that has its moments. The actors are good in their roles, and each brings something to the screen. I found this film good for what it was, and is a far better film than what the critics have said about it. This is a good film that is one Chevy Chase's last viewable efforts. Cops And Robbersons is a fun film that you really need to shut off your brain to enjoy. Don't expect a great film, but expect something good, and you won't be disappointed. Don't believe the bad reviews on this one, as this film has plenty of good things going for it.

Quite average comedy with Chevy Chase who wannabe detective who gets a taste of the real thing while harboiled cop Jack Palance moves in to set up serveillance on Chase's new neighbour. The few chuckles almost make it worthwhile.
