Goes down easy, like fresh apple juice.

Give it a five star! DO IT, DO IT

About 2 to 3 good laughs to be had. Doesn't justify 1 hour and 40 minutes though.

Ugh. There is just something so disappointing about this movie. As such a fan of "Zoolander" I have high expectations for a Ben Stiller/Owen Wilson movie, as long as isn't a Wes Anderson Film. But this is just a limp effort with (from what I remember) one decent laugh towards the end. I could give this movie 2 stars, maybe 2 1/2 because its not awful but it was such a disappointment, and not an interesting let down either.

Stale and barely funny.

A decent twist on an old tv show. Forgettable but fairly funny

Stupid mostly. Has a few funny moments.

Great movie. Very funny, good action, nice duo performance from Stiller and Wilson, and great performances from Vaughn, Bateman, and Dogg.

Any episode of the series would be more enjoyable than this clunker.

I should have been laughing a lot more with this group of guys. Maybe its funnier if you know the original show.

Surprisingly, not nearly as bad as I expected it to be. Turned out to be a fair amount of fun, even though I don't like either of the leads.

Ben Stiller can get rather repetitious with some of his films, but Starsky & Hutch is one of his better efforts, IMO.
Combining Stiller with regular co-star Owen Wilson as the titular detective duo, Starsky & Hutch also benefits from a top class supporting cast including Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Will Ferrell and Snoop Dogg, who is much more charismatic on screen than I'd have suspected.
Combining with an overly silly plot concerning untracable cocaine (that seems to have the special power of looking like artificial sweetener to a forensics lab), this combines for a rollicking good time with plenty of 70's style charm. Decent soundtrack, too.
A fun revival of a classic TV series.

This popcorn movie is not without it's charms. Plenty of gags but not one I could watch again in a hurry.

Another looney film from the duo Ben Stiller/Owen Wilson nor better or worse than their usual films. This time they parody the cult classic tv show Starsky & Hutch. It's an ok film.

This sure does have a divided audience, but thankfully I landed on the positive side of it. What can I say? The film did make me genuinely laugh many times. Stiller and Owen have great chemistry as the lead duo Starsky & Hutch and the storyline, though very simple, was very good actually thanks to the interesting concept of the sugar-coated cocaine. The movie however has some moments that are questionable for its PG-13 rating. But to add to the films credit its pacing is very brisk. Nonetheless, Starsky & Hutch is simply an entertaining buddy cop film.

I hated this movie so much, waste of a great cast and producers ruined it!

I did laugh quite a few times. But it doesn't redeem the thin plot and non existent character development.

I'm not sure if this counts as a guilty pleasure since most people who've seen this movie can completely agree - this Todd Phillips directed retro-spoof is a golden egg hidden under the guise of a pointless remake. No one in the world was demanding a S&H remake, especially one that added sometimes-good-sometimes-awkwardly-bad actors Stiller and Wilson and a layer of shlock to the whole thing, but somehow Philips is able to pull another Old School and bend that weird formula in all the right ways into an excellent, often hilarious take on the classic TV show. 4/5 Fits perfectly into any 'best when baked' stoner movie collection, and one that your parents might actually like too.

Enjoyable for Ben Stiller fans...
