Reno 911!: Miami (2007)



Critic Consensus: Reno 911!'s anarchic brand of comedy loses much in translation to the big screen where it feels slapdash and shallow.

Movie Info

For those unfamiliar with its setup, the popular sketch comedy television series Reno 911! posits itself as an absurdist parody of the long-running reality program Cops, thus placing outrageous and occasionally violent slapstick against a backdrop of deadpan, documentary-like authenticity for maximum laughs. Reno takes several steps backward, however, by involving itself in both the exploits of the knuckleheaded Nevada law officers and the camera crews that film them. The first feature adaptation of that series, Reno 911!: Miami, finds the team and its ever-present film crew traveling to south Florida for a national police assembly, where a registration snafu waylays them from the main convention center to a fleabag motel. When a bioterrorist attack hits the convention, however -- forcing all of the other law officers to be quarantined -- the Reno personnel, as the only uncontaminated policemen, must swing into heroic action and save the day. Lt. Jim Dangle (co-writer Thomas Lennon) with his trademark blonde hair, mustache, mirrored-sunglasses, and skin-tight short-shorts, leads the pack. At 80 minutes, the film essentially consists of a nonstop series of visceral gags loosely tied to its central storyline, involving jiggling breasts, rotting beached whales, violent automobile accidents, unseemly tattoos in the worst possible places, and oh so much more.more

Critic Reviews for Reno 911!: Miami

All Critics (96) | Top Critics (27)

A verit√ (C) riff on the ‚~Police Academy‚(TM) series is the idea behind cult US sitcom ‚~Reno 911!‚(TM), which, here, is stretched to breaking point for this puerile punt at cinematic glory.

Reno 911!: Miami has an actual plot that keeps getting in the way of the comical cops-versus-freaks action.

Georgia Straight

Lowbrow hilarity for adult fans of the TV comedy.

Common Sense Media

Irregular, mas ainda assim capaz de arrancar boas risadas com seu humor nonsense.

Cinema em Cena

This is Reno as it should be done for the big screen: bigger, wetter, fouler and even funnier.

IGN Movies

It's mindless, stupid fun%u2026 and it works. The successful formula? It's short, sharp and never takes itself too seriously

Like a really poor one trick version of Police Academy. Based on a TV show apparently, it shows as they barely had enough material to fill 75mins!

Dean King

Super Reviewer

I never saw the show, and I kinda wish I never saw the movie. It was't that great.
