Someone thought it would be a great idea to shoot a movie about the making of Clerks – which was a film another guy made about his mundane life that became a monster cult favorite. Then they got the guy who made that film to narrate theirs. Isn’t life strange and wonderful? Or at least strange?

DVD Review: Cop Out Rolls Out The Laughs, But The Bonus Features Don’t Rock

copout

Available from Warner Home Video as a DVD/Blu-Ray/Digital Down load Combo Pack beginning July 20th.

Cop Out had all the makings of a box office action/comedy hit when it was released into theaters back in February. It starred action movie veteran Bruce Willis and the very comedic Tracy Morgan and had Kevin Smith in the production mix as director and editor.  In Cop Out, Officers Jimmy Monroe (Bruce Willis) and Paul Hodges (Tracy Morgan) are a pair of bickering-but-got-your-back Brooklyn buddy cops on the  hunt for a stolen 1952 mint-condition baseball card (Jimmy needs it to fund his daughter’s wedding), a hunt plunging them into a gunslinging war with a deadly drug ring.

Cop Out was suppose to be funny and it was laugh out loud funny at several points in the movie. The problem was and still is, that despite a strong cast that also included Sean William Scott and Kevin Pollack, this ‘bromance played for laughs”’ style of cop comedy was short on plot line and relied too heavily on the being carried by the laughs.
