Let me tell you that i haven't had such a good laugh in ages. I saw this film last night for the first time and it was hilarious from start to finish. Paring up Dan akroyd and Gene hackman i think is one of the best team up in film I've actually scene, to the jokes,the action and the actual characters themselves. Having the plot about the Germans and having it set in Washington was pretty stupid i have to admit but it was all part how the story came together. Both the lead stars you rarely see these days due to idiots like eg jack black,will Farrel taking all the air time. This is <more>
the sort of comedy that the younger generation of today should be watching instead of the crap thats out these days. Well im glad these old films like this still exist.
I'm 15. I first remember seeing this film along time ago when I was about 8 or 9 years old. Now after renting from the video store I had a chance to view it again.Gene Hackman plays Mac, a cop who is reluctantly partnered with Ellis Dan Aykroyd to solve a series of grisly murders. Ellis also happens to have Multiple Personality Disorder and when faced with violence he begins to go into these alternate personalities, mostly characters from popular television shows. Back to the story, the killer behind the murders is a German named Von Metz Robert Prosky who has employed a group of <more>
bloodthirsty hitmen to kill anyone who has viewed a snuff film that contains the death of Hitler at the hands of Von Metz. Now Von Metz, if he can get the film off the black market, will almost certainly be elected as chancellor of West Germany. Now a lot of people have dissed this movie for numerous reasons; I only agree with a few of them. Yes, I think Dan Aykroyd's character could have been pulled off by somebody better, like Robin Williams. This movie isn't really all that violent, yes people get shot a lot, but that is about it, even though many people say it is. Also many people say this movie isn't really that funny, I found myself laughing quite a few times. I give it a 6/10
It was funny and witty and Gene Hackman and Dan Akyroyd are balls of laughter in the film. I'm a fan of buddy cop films, I always look forward to a buddy cop film, from 48 hours to lethal weapon and the dirty harry series; the buddy cop films are a blast.Dom Deluise is hilarious, a Mel Brooks regular putting in that usual fat charm that made him funny in the first place to good use in this typical but funny caper.The story is as clichéd as what you see in an 80's/90's cop film; A murder was committed and two cops with different personalities learn to cope with their differences <more>
to break the case and shoot-up bad guys. Now I can't say its original but I like the shoot em ups and this was a good shoot em up film. The car chases were inventive and the scene of the train being hijacked from men on helicopters was a well directed action scene. It focused on the humor but didn't ignore the action. The acting was good, Hackman is always great to watch on screen and Dan is a good partner combination.
Bad Movie??? Nah....Great movie???Maybe (by mosinafd)
GOOD movie!!! I dunno what the other people are griping about, maybe they are easily offended.If you like the 48 Hours Movies, you will like this one.Is it crude? Yes. Is it stupid? yes. Is it REALLY stupid? REALLY yes. Fun to watch? AMAZINGLY so.Although I agree Dom Deluise "Can" butcher movies sometimes, this one he was good in..the obnoxious, fat Triple XXX movie producer. Dan Akroyd as lunatic #1 makes a good performance....Not a full laugh all the time movie, but the one-liners and stupid acts make it funnyAlthough it jumps A lot, and is somewhat..eh..loose-ended at times. it <more>
is a joy to watch.They were able to cram SO many movie cliché's and references it was fun to watch because of that!!! It's amazing all the people in it that you know from other shows. Stargate SG1, Coach, etc. Cop-buddies, S&M, Porno and Nazi smut and sympathizer, hunted down by Israeli Mossad....Let me put it this way: If you like occasional stupidity mixed with comedy and crudeness...this is the movie :D Plus you can find it half ways cheap.My opinion 9 stars....IF...you don't watch it that often :D Only 2-3 times a year.
Late Saturday night I enjoyed it. A lot! (by lefrang)
This is comedy! Sometimes people are offended by stuff like this, but really! How could anybody be offended by silliness like this? Some reviewers found Akroyds "personalities" offensive. I found them amusing as they, of course, should not be taken seriously. It's slapstick, not Ingmar Bergman! The movie was well paced, and reasonably suspenseful as such a movie that tries to follow in the footsteps of movies like "48 hours" should be.There's one thing I dislike about this movie, however, and that's Dom DeLouise. He tries his best to ruin this movie, as he <more>
tries to ruin every other movie I have ever seen him in. That man simply cannot act! It makes you wonder why he's in so many movies. Does anybody know?Based on the other reviews I almost didn't watch this, but once again it shows that what's comedy for someone is not necessarily comedy for everyone.I enjoyed it a lot this late evening, and will probably watch it again, and give it a solid 8.Possibly because I was positively surprised after reading the other reviews...
