John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey, a pair of committed womanizers who sneak into weddings to take advantage of the romantic tinge in the air, find themselves at odds with one another when John meets and falls for Claire Cleary.
In 2002, two rival Olympic ice skaters were stripped of their gold medals and permanently banned from men's single competition. Presently, however, they've found a loophole that will allow them to qualify as a pairs team.
Set in the 1970s in a metropolis called "Bay City," this is the tale of two police detective partners, Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson, and Dave Starsky, who always seem to get the toughest cases from their boss, Captain Dobey, rely on omniscient street informer Huggy Bear and race to the scene of the crimes in their souped-up 1974 Ford Torino hot rod, telling the story of their first big case (as a prequel to the TV show), which involved a former college campus drug dealer who went on to become a white collar criminal.

One of the outtakes shown during the closing credits (the scene with the undressing cheerleader) has Starsky (Ben Stiller) blowing on Hutch's (Owen Wilson's) face to get his attention off the nude girl. This was a reference to a strip club scene from Starsky and Hutch (1975), used in the opening credits of that series. See more »
When Hutch wakes up in bed with the girl, he walks out past a very nice fish tank, with several fish - including a Blood Parrot Cichlid, a hybrid fish bred specifically for its color and distinctive, unusual (and unhealthy for the fish) shape, in 1986. See more »

I don't understand man, I don't understand. You can lose keys, ya know, you can lose your wallet. How... how do you lose a plane?

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson. They are such a great screen duo together
and have some great team chemistry on the screen. The movie is filled
with many other great comical talented actors such as; Vince Vaughn as
the main villain, Snoop Dogg and Will Ferrell and some smaller roles
for famous names such as; Chris Penn, Carmen Electra, Amy Smart and
But the movie is more then just an ordinary buddy-movie, it also is a
priceless parody of '70's TV-shows in general. It uses some of the same
camera-positions and style of editing at times, especially in the
action sequences. But also the way of acting, dialog and costumes
perfectly spoof all those silly '70 TV-series. I'm not sure if
everybody catch or understood this but I really laughed out loud at
The comedy can be put in the category silly, so this movie is clearly
not suitable for everyone. The humor is really over-the-top but I for
