Fresh: Along with some good laughs, there's also a bit of effective tension.
- Brian Webster, Apollo Guide, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: An underrated buddy flick with an original twist and some outstanding stunt work.
- Chuck O'Leary, FulvueDrive-in.com, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: Fox and Woods let off some good sparks in a vivacious, witty and fast romp
- Clint Morris, Film Threat, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Seen this on TV a few times and always forgot the name. An enjoyable film about a big method acting star who teams up with a tough cop to prepare for his new role and ends up in danger!

This buddy cop movie is exactly the kind of cliched formulaic nonsense parodied by Last Action Hero. Woods as the usual tightly wound workaholic cop and Fox as the pampered Hollywood film star who inevitably teaches him life lessons are watchable enough, but it's nothing we haven't seen a hundred times before.
