Storyline

Three minor delinquints (Danes, Ribisi, and Epps) are recruited by a cop (Farina) working undercover to bust a cop/drug ring. When the officer who recruited them is killed, they go above and beyond the call of duty to solve the murder; and bust the drug ring. Suffering the jibes, and ridicule of fellow officers; they struggle to save their names, and that of their deceased benefactor. Written by J. D. Keith <jkeith@compunet.net>

Goofs

Near the end, a car crashes through a warehouse. The walls looked to be made of tin. The vehicle was moving too fast to be stopped by one wall and the items that the vehicle hit on the inside of the warehouse. The vehicle should have crashed through the other wall since no one was in it to apply the brakes. See more »

Bad plot, uninteresting movie.
1 February 2000 | by (Denver, Colorado) – See all my reviews

The mod squad gets started 'after' the formation of the 'Mod Squad' without even bothering to develop any of the characters or show us why anyone is doing what they are doing.

Moreover, most of the events in the movie seem ancillary to the plot. Without even a smack of character development, the plot meanders from Gen-X club scenes to action scenes and back again.
