Were you scared when you heard that Kevin Smith was directing a buddy cop film, since he’s never shown that he has any bit of skill in framing or pacing action pieces? It looks like the action will be the least of our concerns here, as the new trailer for Cop Out (previously titled A Couple of Dicks) is trying so very hard to be funny, and failing at it completely. This is why too much of Tracy Morgan being silly is not a good thing. (How much better would it have been if he were playing the straight man, and Willis the wackjob?)
I’d say you can count the laughs here on one hand, but really you could count them on one hand that’s been mangled beyond recognition in a wheat thrasher.
Check it out for yourself at Apple and forget about it till it hits theaters in February.
Just say no.
