When not solving murders in Tinseltown, Detective Joe Gavilan and his rookie partner Kasey Calden both moonlight in other fields: Gavilan sells real estate (poorly), and Calden aspires to become an actor (Brando, namely). Assigned to the vicious in-club slaying of a promising young rap act, the two detective delve into the recording industry where they hope to find answers - ideally ones that also come with property buyers or auditions.

According to the DVD commentary the roles that Harrison Ford and Josh Hartnett play in the movie are almost reversed in real life. Gavilan (Ford) is a good shot and almost a stunt driver. Calden is a lousy shot and driver. In reality Ford does not like guns and is a very poor shot at best while Hartnett is a very good marksman, having been through actor basic training for two other movies (Pearl Harbor (2001), Black Hawk Down (2001)) twice. Hartnett on the other hand does not like to drive while Ford is, according to Ron Shelton, "...a maniac behind the steering wheel". See more »

Once again this movie shows you can give an audience a good movie, but you can't make them watch. This is an excellent buddy cop movie, with lots of action and a good plot, it won't win Oscars for story telling but it's interesting. Ford and Hartnett give great performances and of course everyone is too wrapped up in that green CGI crap to even notice. Trust me, if there are any adults out there who are looking for an exciting and funny time at the movies, you should ignore the giant green chunk of CGI cheese and see this movie instead. It's the best movie you haven't seen.
