A Commendable Effort for a Difficult Task
16 June 2003 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

It's not easy to make a semi-serious, comedy-cop thriller. Director, writer Ron Shelton (writer for Tin Cup and Bull Durham) took upon himself a very complex and difficult assignment trying to combine comedy with a rather serious, violent cop murder mystery. There were spots in the first half of the movie that seemed to lose action and momentum while the uneasy mix of crime drama and comedy required some brilliant skill and scriptwriting. The end result, "Hollywood Homicide" came out much better than the conflicting, confusing trailers of the movie (one a serious cop version and second trailer a comedy in the vain of Beverly Hills Cop).

The humor was above average, tinged with dry and cerebral humor not usually found in comedies these days. The interplay, the pushing the envelope in character development and character backgrounds were all good efforts at better, quality movie making. This movie was an entertaining and great first attempt by Ron Shelton who took risks with his material and found an fine balance between humor and story plotline that truly promises even better things to come.

Harrison Ford did great with his expressions, his sense of humor, and his letting go and enjoying, playing his part while Josh Harnett went a long for an enjoyable romp with a different kind of cop movie. While this movie wasn't perfect nor Oscar performing, it rates kudos for its experimental success in bringing more to the screen and braving new quality attempts at good movie-making. Seven out of Ten Stars.
