Trivia

In the scene where Kuffs asks his trainer why they're running when they're going to drive most of the time, the cadets are all wearing sweatshirts with their last names on the front. One of those shirts has the last name "Gideon", a nod to co-writer/producer Raynold Gideon. See more »

Good, lightweight entertainment
31 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

"Kuffs" is a fun, slick action-comedy that you just appreciate for what it is. It doesn't even make an attempt to be a landmark cop movie like "48 Hours" or "Lethal Weapon," and that's what it makes it work. It's tongue-in-cheek and completely unpretentious. And Christian Slater is the glue that holds this film together. He's one of my favorite actors (who's quite underrated) and it's his credible, charming, charismatic performance that really makes this film tick. Though this is not one of his serious character roles, he seems to be having a lot of fun and really entertains us with his effervescent presence.

The moment you see Slater talking to the camera in the opening scene, you know this is not a movie to be taken seriously. In fact, this can even be classified as a farce. The material doesn't always seem suited for the big screen (more for the small screen in a TV cop show), but big screen or not it's damn entertaining. My only criticisms are a few cartoonish scenes which are just plain silly, one being Tony Goldwyn drinking coffee spiked with narcotics and stomping around like a Looney Tunes character.

Milla Jovovich is beautiful to look at, the humor is often fresh and funny, Slater is very entertaining and there's some exciting action to boot. Sounds good? It does to me.

My score: 7 (out of 10)
