A comedy about a veteran NYPD cop whose rare baseball card is stolen. Since it's his only hope to pay for his daughter's upcoming wedding, he recruits his partner to track down the thief, a memorabilia-obsessed gangster.
Special Agent Derrick Vann is a man out to get the man who killed his partner but a case of mistaken identity leads him to Andy Fidler, a salesman with too many questions and a knack of getting in Vanns way.
Samuel L. Jackson,
After a clumsy operation trying to capture a drug dealer, the N.Y.P.D Detectives Jimmy Monroe and Paul Hodges are suspended for one month by their Captain Romans. Jimmy decides to sell his rare baseball card to pay for his daughter's expensive wedding while his jealous partner believes that his wife is cheating on him with their next-door neighbor. When Jimmy sells his card to a memorabilia store, the place is burgled by two small-time thieves and the detective loses his card. They track down the thieves. Written by

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 »
Towards the end of the film when Jimmy arrives at Poh Boys house during a "shoot out" he has a white bandage on his right forearm, despite not incurring any injury to his arm earlier in the film. The injury to his arm actually occurred in a deleted scene with a fight with a waitress in the restaurant where they went for translation help. See more »

There's a sad truth that the closer you get to satire the less people will get the joke. Reading the reviews on here it's horribly painful that too many people took this seriously. This is supposed to be a satire on the comedy buddy cop scenario! Willis doesn't do too much comedy, painfully aware how much of a Hollywood audience is going to be too slow to get the jokes. This is a decent Willis comedy role as per Moonlighting. It's not a great film. It's an interesting curio in the careers of K Smith and B Willis. At times laugh out loud funny. More often than not, a bit odd. Do yourselves a favour and stream a Stewart Lee routine ask yourself what really makes comedy?
