IN THEATERS FRIDAY 2/26
This foul-mouthed bromance pairs uptight Jimmy (Bruce Willis) and paranoid Paul (Tracy Morgan) as NYPD detectives recently suspended after a botched drug bust.
Director Kevin Smith capitalizes on the duo's great chemistry and gets laugh-out-loud performances from Morgan as a bag of insecurities (not far from his 30 Rock role) and Willis as the stoic macho man.
Still, the subplot about cash-strapped Jimmy's need to fund his daughter's wedding falls flat.
