Critic Reviews for Rent-A-Cop

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

Minnelli's portrayal of a hooker is poorly written and difficult to accept, but everything else in the plot flows comfortably.

June 14, 2007

Another faceless Reynolds crime caper that handcuffs the audience's appreciation for real arresting comedy. As defective as a broken police siren

May 31, 2003

Rent-A-Cop tried to recapture the magic that Reynolds and Minnelli shared in Lucky Lady (1975), but instead succumb to being one of the cheesiest action flicks of all time

Audience Reviews for Rent-A-Cop


This cop thriller starring Burt Reynolds and Liza Minnelli sucks! Minnelli was too old for the role as a prostitute.

Super Reviewer


Peculiar casting, Burt Reynolds seems to just be going through the motions and is not very enthusiastic. Liza Minnelli is miscast but she does try. Predictable story, obvious but decent score. Liza gets to wear some great costumes. There is a definite lack of chemistry between the stars.
