The inexperienced rookie and hardened pro are teamed together, but clash more than click, so kickstarting a partnership is easier said than done.
Action Comedy - Although it shares the name of the late '70s-early'80s television
series and is loosely inspired by it, this film could not be more
different, for it is not an all-ages appropriate cop drama but an
extremely raunchy comedy aimed at young adults, especially males.
Fans of the lead stars Dax Shepard (who also wrote and directed) and
Michael Pena should be pleased, but Kristen Bell only has a small
role. Constant language and raunchy, crude humor, as well as some
violence make the film not for kids.
PROFANITY: Well over 30 F-words; well over 30 S-words; 11 GD's; many others. SEX/NUDITY: Brief sex with nudity. VIOLENCE: Fights, shootings, a beheading. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol. ACTION: Chases, fights, shootouts, explosions. COMEDY: Constant silly and raunchy banter, wisecracks, and sight gags; gay themed jokes.
Roger EbertFull Review Very Poor This isn't a knowing parody of a beloved show, a la the 2012 reboot/parody "21 Jump Street"; it's a sample of the brain-dead entertainment against which its creators are supposedly reacting. Painfully unfunny sex jokes...
