Storyline

Detectives Steve Carella, Meyer Meyer, and Bert Kling are part of the 87th Precinct's team investigating a murder-extortion racket run by a mysterious deaf man. While attempting to investigate and prevent the murders of several high-ranking city officials, they also must keep track of the perpetrators of a string of robberies. Further complicating matters is a rash of arson attacks on homeless men. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Quotes

Detective: What do you mean they're putting garbage in your car?
Man with Garbage: Every morning garbage in the front seat. You know, coffee grounds, potato peels and moldy fruit. It just gets such a mess when it gets on the floor and, you know, walking around with it slipping on your heels. It's disgusting; old chewed up bones like they had a dog or something. And one day it looked as though somebody had blown their nose in pieces of old toilet paper and wet cigarette butts and things like that. It's really disgusting, ...

Nothing memorable
16 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Put together a cast that includes Burt Reynolds, Yul Brynner, Jack Weston, Racquel Welch, and Tom Skerrit and you would think that you would have a movie worth watching. Not here.

I have been busy with work and not able to see Hot Fuzz yet, so I tuned into Fuzz. I needn't have bothered. It was a total waste of time.

It was supposed to be a comedy with multiple stories like M.A.S.H., but it just didn't work. I not only didn't laugh once, but it was hard to stay interested.

Raquel Welch was totally wasted in this film. Catch her in The Three Musketeers.
