Devon Butler is an eight-year old who dreams of being a cop. He watches police TV shows, knows police procedures, and plays cops and robbers with his friend Ray. One day, while snooping around in a warehouse, he witnesses a murder. He goes to the police, who want the information, but won't get it until they make Devon a cop. The police then team him with veteran cop (and child hater) Nick McKenna, and the two team up in comic series of events to find the killer. Written by

Though the title on the actual film print is literally spell Cop & ½ (1993), predominantly most movie posters, video and DVD covers and printed promotional material for this movie spell the title as "Cop and a Half". See more »
During the scene with Burt Reynolds (in a car) chasing a henchman (on foot) Burt drives through multiple fences and backyards. Just as Burt's hitting the last fence, he shouts "End of the line!" Immediately after that, in a side shot of the car, you can see a crew member bracing himself with his arm on the back of the driver's seat. See more »
At least you have each other, even though you don't have more plates.

Though it's tacked on before the credits instead of after, there's an extra scene in which a sickly Chu is still seen laying on the hood of the bad guys' getaway boat still running in the ocean. See more »
This is one of my childhood favorites! Yes, the plot is pathetic and unbelievable. Yes, the boy is no Dakota Fanning. But Cop and a Half is a very enjoyable movie for people between the ages of 4 and 10. I mean, this movie wasn't marketed towards art school graduate students. The situations are very light-hearted and the jokes corny enough for the young age demographic.
This is also a good movie if you enjoy making fun of B-movies (especially with your friends... and beer). There are numerous plot holes and the man-boy love undertones are hilariously disturbing.
Do not watch Cop and a Half if you are a cantankerous old geezer!
