Did You Know?

Trivia

"Variety" incorrectly stated that the title had been changed from its original one of "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. It would be changed because no major network would broadcast it before 9:00 pm. See more »

Goofs

When driving around in the Crown Victoria patrol car, the vehicle has LED lights in the grill, back window, and one dual light attached with suction cups in the front windshield on the dashboard. In later scenes, the dash light is missing. See more »

Failure
16 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

Toxic waste. As funny as hearing bad news from your doctor.

It's a retro visit to those old buddy cop films, but who is this for? Frat guys passed out on the floor from booze? Stoned nematodes? Middle schooler kids sneaking in through the exit? This is dumbed down so far, that even middle schoolers would roll their eyes.

Bruce Willis just sits around looking bored. He's got some peculiar grin on his face, like some jerk who's pulling a practical joke on a blind person. Tracy Morgan does an annoyingly cheap rip off of Murphy/Pryor/Lawrence, (take your pick). Whining, moaning, stereotyped gibberish, manic babbling delivery. He points at himself and says "look how funny." They're carting around some idiot prisoner who mumbles stupidly with childish taunts, even doing the "repeat what you said" bit. Remember that from kindergarten? It wasn't funny then, either; but at least nobody charged you ten bucks to listen to it for two hours.

Painful. Almost as bad as being seated next to Kevin Smith on a crowded airplane for a 14-hour flight. This one's a wash-out.
