Trivia

Kevin Smith and Bruce Willis did not get along well at all on set. Reports surfaced that Willis disliked Smith's direction, felt he didn't interact enough with the cast, and disagreed with Smith's use of marijuana. Smith has counter-claimed that working with Willis was "soul crushing", stating that Willis often refused to listen to direction, was occasionally combative and was generally unpleasant on and off-set.

Failure
16 March 2010 | by kxok630See all my reviews

Toxic waste. As funny as hearing bad news from your doctor.

It's a retro visit to those old buddy cop films, but who is this for? Frat guys passed out on the floor from booze? Stoned nematodes? Middle schooler kids sneaking in through the exit? This is dumbed down so far, that even middle schoolers would roll their eyes.

Bruce Willis just sits around looking bored. He's got some peculiar grin on his face, like some jerk who's pulling a practical joke on a blind person. Tracy Morgan does an annoyingly cheap rip off of Murphy/Pryor/Lawrence, (take your pick). Whining, moaning, stereotyped gibberish, manic babbling delivery. He points at himself and says "look how funny." They're carting around some idiot prisoner who mumbles stupidly with childish taunts, even doing the "repeat what you said" bit. Remember that from kindergarten? It wasn't funny then, either; but at least nobody charged you ten bucks to listen to it for two hours.

Painful. Almost as bad as being seated next to Kevin Smith on a crowded airplane for a 14-hour flight. This one's a wash-out.
