Hollywood Homicide (2003)



Critic Consensus: Hollywood Homicide suffers from too many subplots and not enough laughs.

Movie Info

Further cementing 2003 as the year of Ron Shelton cop movies, the director continued his vacation from the sports genre with Hollywood Homicide, a police comedy that comes right on the heels of Shelton's Dark Blue, a decidedly grittier cop thriller. The film stars Harrison Ford and Josh Hartnett as LAPD homicide detectives Joe Gavilan and K.C. Calden, two cops with bigger dreams.

All Critics (175) | Top Critics (43)

The trouble is that Mr. Shelton and Mr. Souza don't do enough with the material to make it dramatically compelling.

Despite a talented cast, this movie doesn't work.

Common Sense Media

This is going to go down as one of the lesser films in the portfolios of Shelton, Ford, and most everyone else involved.

Full Review… | September 17, 2007

My guess is Shelton and fellow writer Robert Souza borrowed an idea from TV's improvisational 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?'

Kansas City Kansan

Harrison Ford ainda sabe fazer graça. Pena que o diretor Ron Shelton e o roteiro não saibam.

Cinema em Cena

Harrison Ford and Josh Hartnett, are given enough character quirks to made this trip in cliché-ville more enjoyable than most.

Showtime may not have a great selection of movies, is what I'm finding out.

James Alvarez

Super Reviewer

It's actually a highly entertaining buddy cop movie. Had this come out a decade before, it would have been praised and beloved. Josh Hartnett and Harrison Ford have great chemistry and the banter between the two is hilarious. The story was entertaining and plain fun, It's an excellent blend of comedy and action.
