More Info:
  • Michael Sragow

    It's the ideal capper for a cop comedy with a refreshingly wry, adult and humane attitude.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Like all Shelton's movies, Hollywood Homicide rambles and shambles, and like most of them, it ultimately settles into its own appealing rhythm.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    One of the pleasures of Hollywood Homicide is that it's more interested in its two goofy cops than in the murder plot; their dialogue redeems otherwise standard scenes.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    At its best, "Hollywood" has the breezy irreverence and easy, sunny L.A. atmosphere of Shelton's 1992 "White Men Can't Jump," a buddy-buddy basketball-hustle movie.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    A definite improvement on the recent spate of dull action movies, if only because it has such a marked sense of humor about itself and the genre it belongs to. But somehow it never quite finds its center. Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    He (Ford) slips into the role as if it were a pair of well-worn loafers, the left inherited from Peter Falk, the right from Clint Eastwood, and then proceeds, with wry nonchalance, to tap-dance, shuffle and pirouette through his loosest, wittiest performance in years.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    It's bursting with goofy banter, Hollywood in-jokes, sexy love scenes, and chases that go on much too long but have the kind of madcap self-indulgence that makes questions of logic or credibility seem dull-witted. It's a great piece of mindful escapism.

    Slate Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Is it, you know, fun? At times. Yet there's a rote quality to the way this half-dumb, half-sly movie resolves itself into an intentional debauch, a pileup of villainy and heavy metal. The only California dream it leaves you with is one of wretched excess.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    Ten minutes in, and the verdict is already clear: This is a flick that goes both ways. It's funny, then it's not; it's cooking, then it isn't; it's different, then it ain't.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Luke Y. Thompson

    When the movie works, it gleefully skewers the clichés of the buddy cop genre... When it doesn't work, it's exactly what it purports to be lampooning--a lame, boring cop buddy movie.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    Though its ending feels protracted--especially the climactic chase--it kept me reasonably distracted.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    A film of curiosities and asides, it deliberately eschews plot in favor of character quirk, which is fine in theory and even commendable. But the quirks are lame, the ultimate conflation of story lines is clumsy.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • William Arnold

    Ford tries very hard to be eccentrically funny -- to the point of forced, slapsticky mugging -- but he looks terrible, his timing is way off and his character is so uptight, abrasive and unappealing that he makes miserable company.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    A frustrating blend of the sharply funny and the ploddingly generic. Although he does them well enough, we don’t really need Ron Shelton to give us the same old skidding-U-turn cop-thriller theatrics. He’s a much more distinctive talent than this crass spree allows for.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • David Ansen

    Inside this numbingly formulaic action comedy there's a small, quirky movie not screaming hard enough to get out--the kind of movie that director and co-writer Ron Shelton (“Bull Durham,” “Tin Cup”) could have had some real fun with.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Addison MacDonald

    The movie is a mess, but Harnett and Ford are likable enough to make Hollywood Homicide a unique addition to the cookie-cutter spectacles that usually grace theaters during the summer months.

    Premiere Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Although Ford does not exactly mail in his performance, this is a lazy job, and far from his best work. On top of that, he has no chemistry with co-star (and heartthrob of the moment) Josh Hartnett.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Escapism with a human touch -- it feels lived-in.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Mike Clark

    Somewhere within all of this there really is a homicide -- a hip-hop industry rub-out that may someday make this movie half of a passable DVD double feature with Nick Broomfield's documentary Biggie and Tupac.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Ultimately, this movie cowritten by Shelton and former L.A. police detective Robert Souza has more laughs than suspense, but not enough of either.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    An attempt to merge a semi-jokey buddy movie with a more realistic account of cops' messy private lives, Hollywood Homicide falls short on both counts.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    One of the most lazily scripted, poorly structured, smugly stereotyped star vehicles in recent memory. Bizarrely, this seems to be the point.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Fact is, good looks will go a long way in masking mediocrity, and Hollywood Homicide capitalizes on that fact doubly so: Co-writer/director Ron Shelton’s latest boasts two pretty faces, and all across the country, mothers and daughters sigh alike.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    It's periodically enlivened by unlikely cameos, including Lou Diamond Phillips as an undercover cop posing as a transvestite hooker and Gladys Knight as a forgotten Motown singer.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Hazel-Dawn Dumpert

    Nothing, in fact, really fits together, most notably the partnership of Ford and Hartnett: Looking weathered yet professional, Ford carries what he can, but pretty and sullen Hartnett barely comes to life, leaving his partner stranded, and straining.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    No one comes out of Hollywood Homicide looking good, but the film fades fast.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Souza and Shelton throw in all kinds of ridiculous devices they learned in second-year screenwriting class.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    Hollywood Homicide is about murder, all right: the wholesale slaughter of anything funny, original or even vaguely logical.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • J. Hoberman

    Hollywood Homicide knows it's a dog, and it ain't too proud to beg.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The film doesn't even cut it as cheap escapism.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    By the time it ended, I'd stopped caring. I suspect most moviegoers will do the same. Here's hoping Shelton scurries back to the athletic world in a hurry.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Megan Lehmann

    There's little action in this snail-paced bore, you'll need a high-powered magnifying glass to spot the comedy and the "buddies" have about as much chemistry as a pair of wet socks.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Lands with a thud right from its painfully unfunny prologue and maintains its plodding, exasperating course straight through to its car-chase-and-shootout finale.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

    It's a humiliating comedown for Ford, and he looks creaky and grumpy, obviously aware that he is miscast and dreading every scene.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Kevin Carr

    Yup, Hollywood Homicide”rips off practically every cop movie out there. My god in heaven, did anyone making this film have an original thought in their lives?

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Combines silly stuff about life in Los Angeles with buoyant energy, a couple of chases worthy of the Keystone Kops and quick-witted actors playing droll characters with obvious affection.
