Cop Out (2010) Review

After watching Cop Out for the second time, I am still left with the same feeling as the first time I watched it. Hilarious.

Yes, Cop Out is another cop team up comedy. Yes, it struggles with cliche character bases. Sometimes the delivery of lines is wooden. But despite these drawbacks, more importantly, Cop Out is really funny.

Tracy Jordan and Bruce Willis are both humourous. They do a great job with their lines. Really, this movie is propped up hugely by the great writing and the general ridiculousness that follows Tracy Jordan where ever he goes.

The dumb cop / sassy black cop routine and the mexican drug lord routine is all pretty tired. Adam Brody is depressingly not good, and a letdown from his awesome character in the OC (yes, I watched that show.)

On the other hand, Sean Michael Scott's character is awesome and I never thought I'd like him.

Most importantly, this movie makes me laugh. The longish, semi-awkward, random conversations and the spearing of things in society that really are crap (reality tv anyone?) is awesome.

All in all, Cop Out's quick witty humour makes this movie great and encourages repeated watching.
