My Review

Source Material:
Original screenplay written by brothers Mark and Robb Cullen

Entertaining Value:

  • Action Elements: With being a comedy about cops their is some action sequence but they more slapsticky cause the comedy aspect of the film.
  • Comedy Elements: There are a few one-liners that got the whole theater laughing but these happen mainly in the opening credits .
  • Dramatic Elements: Umm not so much, they actually make fun of melodramatic moments in movies.
  • Sci-Fi / Fantasy Elements: No shiney Sci-fi elements this time.

Cinematic Value:

  • Acting and Dialogue: B-: The strongest actor was Bruce Wills but the strongest comedic performer was Sean William Scott. Tracy Morgan wast as annoy as he usually is in movies. There some great one liners, and pop culture references
  • Art Direction: C-: Nothing too fancy here
  • Cinematography: C-: Agian nothing too fancy here
  • Direction: B: Kevin Smith is very good at asembling a good comdey, this was good but there was some chemistry missing. Maybe that because he not using his normal comic players
  • Editing: C: Nothing special
  • Screenplay: B: The story wasn't half bad, a bit cliche but it work for a comedy
  • Sound and Music: C: I wasn't the biggest fan
  • VFX: NA not enough to commit on

  • Themes: Friendship, "A Couple of Dicks"
  • Moral of the Story: Friends stick up for each other together even in the hard times, I got your back
