When not solving murders in Tinseltown, Detective Joe Gavilan and his rookie partner Kasey Calden both moonlight in other fields: Gavilan sells real estate (poorly), and Calden aspires to become an actor (Brando, namely). Assigned to the vicious in-club slaying of a promising young rap act, the two detective delve into the recording industry where they hope to find answers - ideally ones that also come with property buyers or auditions.Written by
Ron Shelton said that, according to the source material he worked with, K.C. Calden leaving the screenplay at Jerry Duran's house was based loosely on a real event. A police officer and aspiring screen writer was sent to a house to investigate a crime.

Once again this movie shows you can give an audience a good movie, but you can't make them watch. This is an excellent buddy cop movie, with lots of action and a good plot, it won't win Oscars for story telling but it's interesting. Ford and Hartnett give great performances and of course everyone is too wrapped up in that green CGI crap to even notice. Trust me, if there are any adults out there who are looking for an exciting and funny time at the movies, you should ignore the giant green chunk of CGI cheese and see this movie instead. It's the best movie you haven't seen.
