Background Info

The trailer was enough to sell this film to me, if only because of that scene in the car. I never turn down a chance to see Bruce, either, and with too many horror films clouding the iTunes store, this was a refreshing choice for us.

00:01:42 - Bruce hates anniversaries. Noted. 00:02:14 - “It’s not stealing, it’s called homage!” 00:05:01 - Ah! Die Hard reference! Mr C loves it when they make fun of themselves. 00:08:48 - How can you be undercover in a giant mobile phone costume? 00:14:26 - You wouldn’t be happy with Kevin Costner playing you, would you? 00:17:04 - You can’t shoot someone in a church! 00:18:47 - Is that Buffy’s sister? 00:21:16 - I never know why who pays for weddings is so important? Can’t the girl just pay for herself? 00:24:42 - “You’re my tenderooney.” Hmm. 00:27:24 - The one drawback to not having a lot of clutter is there’s nothing to sell in case of emergency. 00:32:57 - “What are you, Wikipedia?” **00:37:47 **- It’s excellent to have incompetent cops along with incompetent thieves. In films, anyway. 00:40:51 - It would be wrong to leave a knock knock joke hanging. 00:46:36 - That’s a lot of guns. 00:52:08 - He’s rubbish at acting both parts! 00:55:30 - I don’t suppose you can survive being flung from a car head first into a headstone. I don’t think this will be forgotten quickly. 00:56:49 - Ooh, Jaime equals Jimmy. 01:02:18 - Sometimes it’s good to open your heart to someone who doesn’t speak the language. As long as you’re sure they don’t. 01:03:41 - Teddy bear!** **01:12:04 - “You look like you could use a hug.” “You read that wrong.” I am so going to use that in the future. 01:17:57 - No one should whisper about Bruce behind his back. 01:27:31 - Phew, he got the shoe! I don’t want Bruce to be running around in one shoe for too long. Although he didn’t do too badly in bare feet in Die Hard.** **01:30:10 - They are quite trigger happy cops. 01:35:17 - Is being called a Bon Bon a compliment? 01:40:37 - Best partner in the world!** **

Conclusions

The main problem with this film is that it had two very, very funny moments and therefore everything else paled in comparison a little. However, I laughed out loud quite a lot, and Bruce was fabulous as always. Even the story was good, despite starting out in a “cops get taken off the job” cliche. I wonder if they’ll make a sequel.

Rating: 4/5
