There are a few very funny moments in this thankfully short 77 minutes, but nowhere near enough ideas or gags to sustain a feature-length version of this TV show.

Reno does manage a titter here and a giggle there. But it's a cheap, dumb, obvious movie. How cheap? The big screen never seemed so small.

As a TV show, Reno 911! is diverting and amusing; as a motion picture, it's overlong and wears out its welcome. The film offers some solid laughs, but not enough to justify sitting through 80 minutes of the faux cops' antics.

Most of the humor is just casual references to outrageous behavior, awkward sexual feelings among the cast, preening self-regard, utter cluelessness, and insecure anxiety of its characters, and slapstick.

Hearkens back to comedy classics like Police Academy 5: Assignment Miami Beach, specifically in the areas of quality control, production value and chuckle quota.

The Reno 911! movie is a lot like the Reno 911! TV show except everybody's naked and it's not as funny.

An utterly inane whodunit more in search of a cheap joke than the perpetrators of any crime.

They're out of ideas. Moving it to a different city and putting it on the big screen doesn't cure that problem.

What feels amusingly anarchic on the small screen feels underdeveloped and disjointed on the big screen, perhaps because instead of commercials gluing the jokes together there's dead air.

The change of scenery hasn't worked any wonders for this goofy, grossout Nevada law enforcement gang, to say the least.

...they failed to come up with an effective way to transfer the show...to the big screen...

The actors behind this show are far more talented than this movie suggests -- many of their funniest quirks haven't made the final cut -- and there's no excuse beyond simple quick-buck greed for such a sloppy effort.

Sadly, there's not much of an arresting development from the lovable nitwits from Nevada.

Without the aid of substances, Reno 911!: Miami is as much in need of laughs as its characters are in need of a collective brain transplant.

Being this unfunny should be illegal.

It is marred by a lack of inspiration, some flat celebrity cameos, and the same gay jokes and identical situations over and over again.

Aside from uncensored profanity and unpixelated nudity, the Reno 911!: Miami never really stretches its legs, and instead often feels more like a stretched-out half-hour episode.

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.
