Two longtime NYPD partners on the trail of a stolen, rare, mint—condition baseball card find themselves up against a merciless, memorabilia—obsessed gangster. Jimmy (Bruce Willis) is the veteran detective whose missing collectible is his only hope to pay for his daughter’s upcoming wedding, and Paul (Tracy Morgan) is his “partner—against—crime” whose preoccupation with his wife’s alleged infidelity makes it hard for him to keep his eye on the ball.

The movie wants to send up hoary action- and buddy-movie cliches, including the tinge of gay attraction that passes between the stars. But it's too fuzzily executed to pass muster as satire. Plus, it loves the cliches too much to subvert them.Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, 06.24.2010
Cop Out is a little too well-shot to be full-on cheesy and too much a redux to be, well, as fresh as Beverly Hills Cop or Lethal Weapon.Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, 06.24.2010
Kevin Smith may have needed a big Hollywood comedy right now, for a lot of reasons. What his old fans still need, though -- and in a hurry -- is a real Kevin Smith movie.Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, 06.24.2010
Cop Out is foul-mouthed but not funny, bullet-riddled but not exciting, crammed with contrivances that go nowhere. And, perhaps worst of all, it musters up no chemistry between its buddy-cop leads.Claudia Puig, USA Today, 06.24.2010
