Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Like "Bull Durham," this is a shaggy-dog satire about seemingly casual but surprisingly vain men who define themselves by the professional games they play while treating life itself like a game.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Billings Outpost (Montana)

It's not a bad film, just a very tired one that wastes a good cast. Some people will like this movie. For the rest, the best time to see it is when it hits Blockbuster.
| Original Score: 2/4

It asks too much and offers too little

Hollywood Homicide tries to be a Lethal Weapon for a new generation -- without the likeable characters, cool action scenes and James Bond style bad guys.

In its attempt to stuff as much on screen as possible, the movie ends up being unsatisfying in every way.

As in last winter's unfairly overlooked 'Dark Blue,' Ron Shelton lures us into his underground lair with genre clichés only to sucker-punch us with something unexpected.
| Original Score: 3/4
Mark Palermo
The Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Hollywood Homicide isn't insulting, but it equates respectable entertainment with restrained pleasure.

The surplus of character humor seems all the more desperate in view of the essentially humorless stars.

It's a great piece of mindful escapism.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
June 16, 2003
It's a pretty lame cop thriller when the most exciting aspect of the movie is whether or not Harrison Ford is going to sell Martin Landau's house.

There's a clever, quirky movie eagerly, if vainly, trying to emerge from Hollywood Homicide.

Virtues include the comic rapport between Ford and Hartnett and a good supporting cast.

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.

A reasonably entertaining picture that nevertheless leaves you wondering -- what, exactly, did I just see?
Marshall Fine
Journal News (Westchester, NY)
June 14, 2003
A pile of action-movie clichés.

Film Journal International
June 14, 2003
Breezy and disposable, the film is great summer fun whenever it doesn't take itself seriously.
Eric D. Snider
June 14, 2003
It's so lightweight and unfocused as to be thoroughly forgettable.

Although Ford and Hartnett share some amusing moments as mismatched partners, that's not enough to save this disappointing buddy/cop flick.
Scott Weinberg
June 13, 2003
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.
