Trivia

Kevin Smith credits Tracey Morgan for getting him through the shoot by being funny and good-natured. He said that "He's a f*cking dream. Tracy Morgan, I would lay down in traffic for. Were it not for Tracy, I might have either killed myself, or someone else in the making of Cop Out (2010)." See more »

Goofs

In the car chase sequence through the cemetery, Jimmy shoots out the back of the car and the assailants shoot into it, however the glass can be seen to only have one small hole in the middle of it. See more »

Much Better Than Expected
27 February 2010 | by (Belmont, Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

I saw this with my 15-year-old son, and we both laughed a lot, as did the nearly-full mid- afternoon theater audience. I have rarely seen such a stark disconnect between some scathing reviews and actual audience reaction.

Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan have excellent chemistry. Morgan is consistently funny, and Willis goofs nicely on his own image. Sean William Scott is a hoot! You have to see his one- of-a-kind performance to believe it, and don't miss the credits!

Yes, it's no masterpiece, plot, action, or comedy-wise. The primacy of Beverly Hills Cop and Die Hard in the action-comedy pantheon is undisturbed. No new creative ground is broken here. Kevin Pollack, unfortunately, is given little to do. Adam Brody was 10 times better in Mr. & Mrs. Smith, in a far smaller role. But on the whole, the movie does what one asks of an action-comedy: it makes you laugh many times, and it does not bore you.

Ana de la Reguera is also an unexpected treat. Bonita y deliciosa.

Me and my son give it two thumbs up!
