Directed by: Kevin Smith (“Zack and Miri Make a Porno”)
Written by: Robb Cullen (debut) and Mark Cullen (debut)

Even director Kevin Smith has to know what he’s created here. In the lame buddy cop flick “Cop Out,” which stars Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan, Smith seems to just be passing the time with nothing better to do. Here, he allows Morgan to deliver his usual improvised shtick while Willis sits back looking older than ever. If you can get past the terribly unfunny scenes at the beginning where Morgan speeds through movie impersonations, you might be one of the very few who are able to stomach the entire movie even after the “Die Hard” reference.
