Trivia

A sequel titled "Reno 911!: S.O.S" was written before the film's release, centered around flashbacks between the start of the Lt. Dangle-led squad and a modern-day storyline involving a plane crash and an escaped serial killer, but the mediocre performance of this film led Fox to pass on the project. See more »

Goofs

During the first night at the International Inn, Dep. Wiegle shows Lt Dangle her sunburn, patterned around a bathing suit and a bra. The next day she appears on the beach with Dep. Johnson wearing the bathing suit/bra combination, but without the burn. It would appear these two scenes were originally shot to appear in reverse order. See more »

Quotes

Deputy Trudy Wiegel: God Terry, what are you covered in?
Terry: Oh that's... Apple Martini lube.

Funny and Satisfying, Even for Non-Fans of the TV Series
22 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'd only seen part of one episode of the TV show before seeing the film, so my knowledge of the characters and the premise of the show was limited. No matter: the film does an excellent job of establishing its tone and the specifics of the characters right off the bat. No roadmap required.

My biggest fear with seeing a theatrical version of a TV series is that the film tries to overinflate the stakes of the plot to justify the increased length and budget and fails. Reno 911!: Miami took that necessity to its logical next step by moving the small town incompetence to a much larger scale in Miami, but due to some clever (and minimalist) writing, the relocation works. And, since nearly all of the humor in the film is derived from the characters and their reactions to their situations -- all of which speed by at a brisk pace, so as to not overmilk a joke -- the relocation never felt forced or unwelcome.

Impressively, the film veers into cliché territory on numerous occasions but never delivers the expected punchline. The actors know their characters so well that their improvisations keep the audience and their costars on their toes at all times. Even the traditional "caper" plot, which is really just an excuse to tie all the vignettes together, is handled with more originality than I would have expected.

Perhaps I should start expecting more from this creative team, since they're capable of sustaining my interest (and my amusement) over the course of a full-length feature. In fact, perhaps I should start watching the series...
