Storyline

Bob Bolano and Terry Monroe are two crooked Albuquerque PD detectives. They tend to hustle criminals but their methods have landed them in hot water with their boss, and they are on their last warning. They get wind of a heist and decide to muscle in on the action, robbing the perpetrators. Unfortunately for them, the mastermind of the heist is someone out of their league, someone they would do well to fear. Written by grantss

Trivia

In the scene at the members only club Alexander Skarsgård orders a bloody mary and says "the bloodier the better." This is likely a reference to True Blood (2008) where he played the vampire Eric. See more »

Goofs

As he is walking across the street, Bob pulls out his pistol and racks the slide. This would either eject the round in the chamber, which it does not appear to do, or load a cartridge. In any case, a police officer would always carry his firearm loaded, and would never need to do such a thing. See more »

Bob Bolaño: I've always wondered if you hit a mime, does he make a sound?
Terry Monroe: [mime thuds and rolls over their car] Well, now you know.

black comedy that won't please everyone
20 February 2017 | by oblocoSee all my reviews

This is one of those movies that you'll either love or hate.

I loved it.

The opening scene had me thinking that it was too over-the-top, and I wasn't going to like it, but I just kept laughing. Out loud.

Being from New Mexico, some of the jokes at the expense of the ABQ PD had extra spice.

Black comedy isn't for everyone. If you don't like the dark side, you aren't going to enjoy this one. I can understand the reviews from those who like their comedy dark but just didn't connect with this one, too. Different strokes and all. It is wacky, crazy, and out there, not just black.

I found the chemistry between the two buddy cops great, there are some truly wonderful lines amongst their banter.

If you can get over the "silly factor" involved with being so over-the-top, I think you'll enjoy the ride, otherwise you'll be one of those that "HATED IT".
