In this action/comedy two cops' (Wills And Morgan) search for a stolen baseball card almost leads them into the clutches of a memorabilia obsessed gangster. A spoof of cliche buddy-cop movies that is, in itself, a cliche buddy-cop movie. The wisecracks come thick and fast, but only about a quarter to them are funny. The first film that Kevin Smith directed without scripting. Hopefully he'll stick with writing his own scripts from now on, or at least start picking better ones.
Role Models was much funnier than I expected. I thought it was going to be a typical feel good comedy about two losers who show they are really great guys in the end. It exactly that, but it was done with great humor and acting. Much better than I expected.
I'm not gonna try to convince anyone that this is a "good" movie. But I like it, because they got one thing right: the car. The General Lee is definitely the star of this show (Shhh, no one tell Knoxville!). Anyone who loved the show loved it for the car...and Daisy, I suppose. But I'm with Bo on this one. That car is beautiful, and is lovingly shot throughout the movie. I can't think of a recent movie that better exemplifies the words 'car porn.' Sorry, "Gone in 60 Seconds" remake, if you'd have put a Charger in there for more than three seconds, you might have had a shot.
