Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey, a pair of committed womanizers who sneak into weddings to take advantage of the romantic tinge in the air, find themselves at odds with one another when John meets and falls for Claire Cleary.
Set in the 1970s in a metropolis called "Bay City," this is the tale of two police detective partners, Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson, and Dave Starsky, who always seem to get the toughest cases from their boss, Captain Dobey, rely on omniscient street informer Huggy Bear and race to the scene of the crimes in their souped-up 1974 Ford Torino hot rod, telling the story of their first big case (as a prequel to the TV show), which involved a former college campus drug dealer who went on to become a white collar criminal.Written by
Hutch's motorcycle has a front disk brake, not available in the mid '70s. See more »
Don't stress. Just relax.
I don't understand man, I don't understand. You can lose keys, ya know, you can lose your wallet. How... how do you lose a plane?
Reese, come on. What do you want me to do? You got three out of four planes in. That's still a lot of coke.
Now, see that? That's the kind of winning attitude that's gonna take this enterprise straight to the top.

I blame myself for seeing another Ben Stiller movie...
Good old reliable Ben Stiller plays the same loser-type, annoying character he has played many times before (most notably in "Meet the Parents" and "There's Something About Mary") that grates on my nerves. So why did I see this? Well, I liked the old S&H on TV and Movielink.com was only charging 3.99, so...
Dreadful waste of time. The writing was uninspired and not funny. I smiled twice: once at Hutch's ingredients for his hangover treatment (something like Pepto Bismol, Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix, and a few other things) and the Bat Mitzvah scene. Ah yes--the Jewish angle.
The heavy in this movie is a Jewish guy named Reese Feldman, played very well by Vince Vaughn--the only one who seems to be even trying in this flick. Perhaps the producers/writers were responding to Marlon Brando's criticism that Hollywood never shows bad Jews. Well, Mr. Feldman kills a guy in cold blood in the first scene and is a cocaine dealer. So there. Marlon, I hope you caught this at the Heavenly Multiplex.
The Bat Mitzvah ends in a funny manner...I won't spoil it. The only other good thing about this movie was the great 70s soundtrack.
