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.

About 10 1975-76 Ford Gran Torinos were totaled during production. Only two Torinos from the film were intact. One of them is a genuine 1976 Gran Torino with the Starsky and Hutch (1975) paint job, and the other was a base 1974 Torino which had been in storage. In reality, the 76 and 74 Torino which was used in the film was repainted with the white stripe resembling the one used on the TV show. All of the movie Torinos used 15-inch slot mag rims. They're not available new, so the rims (originally known as the Ansen Sprint, first introduced in 1963 and subsequently copied by several aftermarket wheel manufacturers e.g. E-T Wheels, Appliance, Cragar, Fenton, American Racing, U.S. Wheel) until the early 1980s) mostly came from swap meets, salvage yards, or eBay.

Sniffer dogs detect trace amounts of drugs that get into the air and stick to objects that have been near or in contact with drugs. If cocaine was chemically altered to "smell" differently in order to avoid sniffer dog detection, the drug would no longer be cocaine. See more »
Don't stress. Just relax.
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?
Reese, come on. What do you want me to do? You got three out of four planes in. That's still a lot of coke.
Now, see that? That's the kind of winning attitude that's gonna take this enterprise straight to the top.

Of all the recent buddy-cop movies, released lately this is one of the better ones.
Biggest strength of this movie is in the two main characters played by 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 Juliette Lewis.
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 some moments.
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 one really enjoyed that. The characters are really silly but the professional comedy actors portray them extremely well and likable.
A perfectly fun comedy to kill some time with.
