Veteran detective Jimmy Monroe needs to cash in on his perfect Pafko in order to pay for his daughter's upcoming wedding, but in the tradition of everything that can go wrong... it's pilfered before he has a chance to collect.

1:42Bruce hates anniversaries. Noted.
2:14“It’s not stealing, it’s called homage!”
5:01Ah! Die Hard reference! Mr C loves it when they make fun of themselves.
8:48How can you be undercover in a giant mobile phone costume?
14:26You wouldn’t be happy with Kevin Costner playing you, would you?
17:04You can’t shoot someone in a church!
18:47Is that Buffy’s sister?
21:16I never know why who pays for weddings is so important? Can’t the girl just pay for herself?
24:42“You’re my tenderooney.” Hmm.
27:24The one drawback to not having a lot of clutter is there’s nothing to sell in case of emergency.
32:57“What are you, Wikipedia?”
37:47It’s excellent to have incompetent cops along with incompetent thieves. In films, anyway.
40:51It would be wrong to leave a knock knock joke hanging.
46:36That’s a lot of guns.
52:08He’s rubbish at acting both parts!
55:30I 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.
56:49Ooh, Jaime equals Jimmy.
1:02:18Sometimes it’s good to open your heart to someone who doesn’t speak the language. As long as you’re sure they don’t.
1:03:41Teddy bear!
1:12:04“You look like you could use a hug.”
1:17:57No one should whisper about Bruce behind his back.
1:27:31Phew, 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.
1:30:10They are quite trigger happy cops.
1:35:17Is being called a Bon Bon a compliment?
1:40:37Best partner in the world!

Thoughts

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.

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
