The good news: Kevin Smith didn't write Cop Out, meaning you get to avoid a cavalcade of characters who have the exact same vocabulary and speak in the exact same rhythm/cadence. The bad news: just like most Kevin Smith movies as of late, the only chance of you having a good opinion of this movie lies in you only seeing it once as each successive viewing is going to slaughter any positive memory you have of it.
What a shame, Kevin, I trusted you. Zach and Miri was not a masterpiece but was still funny and intelligent, but this time it's like you put everything into the dumber machine. Silly plot, silly actors, everything is so predictable and deadly boring...what a shame, yes. But I will give you another chance, so next time please think about your fans, most of them are not dumb as this movie is.
I wasn't expecting much, and I got what I expected. What the hell happened to you Kevin Smith? You used to be great. This is what happens when you try to make fun of the genre by flat out copying its films. I can't even call it mediocre, it was just flat out terrible...
I tried to hang out and relax with my nephew so we watched this film. Terrible idea. Ended up being Walk Out because this thing was such a piece of shit. I am actually upset about how truly awful this movie really is. Things this bad should be burned in the town square. Perhaps the worst film I have ever seen...etc, etc, etc...
I was surprisingly thoroughly entertained by this film and I don't think it's nearly as bad as people make it up to be. Smith didn't strike gold, but he did pretty good. I don't see this as a blip in his career honestly.
