Shelton is too smart an observer to totally miss the mark. But after a career of cooking up yummy, tart dessert delights, he has wheeled himself down the junk-food aisle. Let's hope he's doing it just this once.

There are some laughs to be had here, but they are islands in a becalmed ocean.

It's Get Shorty, but not as agile.

There is an interminable chase scene near the end, leaving Ford teetering on a girl's bicycle and Harnett driving a weeping mother and children.

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

Harrison Ford and John Hartnett are a mismatched cop duo -- and their action-comedy train wreck is the real crime.

So amazingly bad that it looks like it began as a Showtime flick written for Jean Claude Van Damme and Dean Cain to star in.

... in this lacklustre affair, even (Harrison) Ford manages to put in his most wooden performance on record ...

It's so lightweight and unfocused as to be thoroughly forgettable.

Sluggish direction, bad writing, and Lolita Davidovich.

That Ford deserves better goes without saying. The trouble is that Hartnett deserves better. So does Shelton. So do Washington, Greenwood and Olin... and so do we.

An attempt to merge a semi-jokey buddy movie with a more realistic account of cops' messy private lives, Hollywood Homicide falls short on both counts.

No one comes out of Hollywood Homicide looking good, but the film fades fast.

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

Hollywood Homicide should have been a much stronger and funnier movie.

'An irritating, disjointed mess that can never decide what kind of film it wants to be.'

What kind of food is Calista Flockhart feeding - or, rather, not feeding - Harrison Ford over there?

Any movie featuring a little Motown music can't be all bad ... Unfortunately ... appearances by Master P (Percy Miller) and KURUPT (a.k.a. Ricardo Brown) also mean more hip-hop than golden-oldies. For some, that becomes a very real Hollywood homicide.
