Stiller e Wilson certamente já provaram ser capazes de originarem uma franquia baseada não em personagens, mas em suas próprias personalidades.
| Original Score: 4/5
...Director Todd Phillips (Road Trip, Old School) proves once again that he has a hand for feel-good comedies.
If you like Stiller and Wilson, you'll find enough to like about this film. If you don't, you can always just gawk at that awesome car.
| Original Score: 3/5
Isn't worth doing, and here is not well done.
The idea of it, including the attention to seventies detail and the music, is funnier than most of the film.
| Original Score: C
If you never saw the TV show, you'll still laugh.
| Original Score: 4/4
An amiable comedy, boosted by some good jokes, solid performances and plenty of charm.
| Original Score: B
Comedy is difficult. Good comedies are rare. "Starsky & Hutch" has three noteworthy moments, one of which involves a horse mistakenly gunned down at a bat mitzvah. Hilarious.
| Original Score: D
The film takes a bad but beloved 1970s TV series and transforms it into an experience of almost transcendent silliness.
| Original Score: 3/4
Would the producers please just get out of the way and let Todd Phillips direct the darn movie?
| Original Score: 2/5
...the movie doesn't take any of its material seriously-a big plus-and the alertness of the characters usually results in some scenes of hilarious comic value...
| Original Score: 2.5/4
A sterling supporting cast -- down to the tiniest bit parts -- provides enough astringent intelligence to make the slobbering sentimentality go down with ease.
Any resemblance between the original -- and fun! -- 1970's TV series and this in-name-only Todd Phillips's dud is entirely accidental.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
If you're a fan from back in the day, seeing that Red and White-striped Gran Torino in action once again will have you leaving the theater with a grin on your face.
Big on potential, short on really big laughs, it's a buddy cop comedy which coasts on the charisma and chemistry of its stars.
Stiller and Wilson are perfectly cast and work beautifully together...
Many of the gags here are hit or miss, but Wilson and Stiller's unflappable charm and the obvious fun they're having translates into precious little witlessness.
Part of the reason this film succeeds is because it manages to be both an affectionate mickey-take of the television show as well as glorifying everything that was cool about the era.
Moves slowly and without much grace; it tries to jiggle laughs out of us instead of letting them flow freely.
More a wasted franchise opportunity than a movie.
