Variety incorrectly stated that the title had been changed from its original name "A Couple of Dicks" to "A Couple of Cops." Many news sites concluded that the change was a result of the studio disliking the double entendre nature of the original title. Kevin Smith's previous film, Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008), had problems with its title as well. The title would up being changed anyway, due to major networks refusing to promote it before 9 P.M. See more »
When Paul interrogates Raul, Raul breathes on the mirror-glass, so it becomes hazy. Some people think that Jimmy draws a figure in the haze on the other side of the glass, though his side must be dry, but before he starts to draw, he is seen breathing himself on his side of the mirror-glass.

considering the talent involved this feels like they didn't bother to read the script before they started shooting. this is a really, really bad script. the leads are mildly entertaining but they would have been more fun just standing in front of a curtain talking for 2 hrs.
i guess this was one for the paid check for smith.. but the Morgan and Willis? take the blood away and you have a story so dumbed down it would be suitable for a special sponge bob crime episode.
how scripts like these get made into movies is beyond me. can someone explain? seriously.
the soundtrack is keyboard retro 80s and just reminds viewers that this could be a lame attempt to say hello to much better and funnier movies like Beverly hills cop and the like.
I just read that smith also edited this. Well I guess you could not save this mess in the post production.
