Cop Out is marvelously juvenile, not just in its typical situation comedy and sight gags, but from its ability (even desire) to frequently bring its plot to a shuddering halt so its characters can engage in a few minutes of quiet ridiculousness.

Willis and Morgan are a devilishly delightful down and dirty detective duo, as Kevin Smith releases their combo inner zany outlaws in a kind of Clerks with badges.

Trying to make up for a lack of genuine wit, this film adopts a frenetic pace with a constant stream of jokes and action. The result is watchable, occasionally funny and instantly forgettable.

Amiable if not very funny comedy thriller that scrapes a pass thanks to decent performances and surprisingly pacy direction from Kevin Smith.

Cop Out is clichéd but just about gets away with it despite some lacklustre gags along the way.

Director Kevin Smith capitalizes on the duo's great chemistry and gets laugh-out-loud performances from Morgan as a bag of insecurities (not far from his 30 Rock role) and Willis as the stoic macho man.

Everyone who hates buddy cop flicks never spent 48 hours straight sprawled out on their buddy's futon between 1983 and 1994. Eddie Murphy and cheesy synthesized ditties are a far better hangover remedy than bananas and cod liver oil. Cop Out is mor

Is it a Cop Out to make a throwback to the '80s buddy cop comedy instead of doing something original? Maybe, but at least it'll make you laugh out loud a few times.

Who needs a plot with a herd of stand-up comics and a bushel of wisecracks?

If you don't normally find Tracy Morgan hilarious, you may not experience the same level of blissful enjoyment from the jokes about his poop as I did.

While still a rude, crude and chatty man film, as Smith's movies often are, Cop Out works.

Whether or not it's a huge hit in its theatrical release, Cop Out will definitely become the kind of movie that will make you drop the remote when it starts popping up on cable.

it satisfies the demands of being entertaining, and doesn't bother with the business of emotional depth or even particularly effective storytelling

Smith certainly does his thing here, delivering a film that's part celebration and part parody of the well-worn genre.

Cop Out is not a flop by any stretch of the late Winter/early Spring, post-Awards season sense of movie marketing. It's just a genial, generic romp.

While Smith's self-acknowledged weakness with action sequences is still evident, his gift for profanity-laden comedy more than makes up for it.

Cop Out is a silly waste of time. In other words, it's just what we need right now.
