Storyline Heading
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 is the veteran detective whose missing collectible is his only hope to pay for his daughter's upcoming wedding, and Paul 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.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Crime Comedy - This is a silly, sometimes crude, profanity-heavy buddy action comedy. Fans of stars Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan should be pleased, but fans of director Kevin Smith's previous work may be disappointed that he did not write the script. Constant language and some violence make the film inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Okay, there are worse movies out there, but I'm hard-pressed to figure out why I'd waste my time and money watching something that's a half-baked retread of better movies I can stream from Netflix.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average A lot of the dialogue is intended as funny, but man, is it lame.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average 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.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 135 moviegoers:
TEENS: GREAT reviews from the guys. Almost all loved "Cop Out." Very Good reviews from the ladies. Just a few were disappointed. Most enjoyed "Cop Out" very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: There weren't very many reviews in this group but they all loved "Cop Out."
ADULTS: Somewhat disappointing reviews from the adults, both males and females. Only a small percentage truly loved "Cop Out."

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Two longtime NYPD partners on the trail of a stolen, rare, mint-condition baseball card find themselves up against a merciless, memorabilia-obsessed gangster. But before they can recover the prized `52 Pafko, they must first rescue a Mexican beauty who holds the key to millions of dollars in off-shore bank accounts—and who has already witnessed one high-profile murder because of them.

Veteran detective Jimmy Monroe (Bruce Willis) 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. Paul Hodges (Tracy Morgan) is Jimmy's "partner-against-crime," whose preoccupation with his wife's alleged infidelity makes it hard for him to keep his eye on the ball, or his mind on the crime. Already in trouble and with nothing left to lose, Jimmy and Paul will have to break all the rules—including enlisting the aid of stoner thief Dave (Seann William Scott), who's working Paul's last nerve as Paul and Jimmy try to work the case.
