trailer break: ‘Cop Out’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

This is the movie that was once titled A Couple of Dicks. Kevin Smith thinks it’s funny that the new title — changed for obvious reasons of prudery — is Cop Out (after an interim alteration to A Couple of Cops). Unfortunately, the trailer makes the movie look like a standard hack-job action comedy. A cop out, if you will, for Smith, directing his first big-budget studio film from a script he did not write.

Tracy Morgan and Seann William Scott together in the same movie? I suppose the collective IQ of their typical characters — as these certainly appear to be — perhaps approaches that of one normal person. So maybe together they’re supposed to make up one half of the buddy couple. I wonder how Bruce Willis feels about costarring with morons…

Is all that “no no no hell no” stuff from Morgan at the end meant to be funny? Cuz it’s painful.

Cop Out opens in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. on February 26.
