Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan team up in this comedy about a veteran NYPD cop whose rare baseball card is stolen. Since the card is his only hope to pay for his daughter's upcoming wedding, he recruits his partner to track down the thief, a memorabilia-obsessed gangster.
Urgh: I am black and damn me for saying this..but Tracy Morgan is not the finest black man I have seen on screen. His role as a half wit cop did not help matters. He fulfilled every racist crack that has made against blacks: stupidity bordering on imbecility, bad grammar, excessive use of cuss words, obsessed with food and sex. And I use to think Martin Lawrence was a pain in the behind. Compared to Tracy, Martin is a dream boat.
I don’t understand Bruce’ role. He’s either losing his shine or Tracy’s imbecilic moves made every other act fade in comparison.
I won’t deny there were a FEW laffs (from Sean Williams Scott) but half of the time I was just muttering under my breathe: tape that mouth stupe!
Ginger scores it 3.3/10
** According to Bruce, this movie will make history: "One of you guys needs to write about this. Someone needs to write about the fact that even though this film descends from a long line of cop movies and cop buddy movies, I think this is the first time in history -- and maybe this is only important to me -- that a black actor and a white actor in a buddy cop movie where they work together everyday where it isn't even mentioned. Not one time in this film is it mentioned. That's a big step and that's a good thing. It doesn't have to be about that."
