An activity parody short on both activity and comic drama, this turgid lament reuses all the typical bungled cop-couple platitudes (from 48 Hours to Cop Out) with inauspicious results. Ice Cube is the stone hard analyst willing to twist standards and break heads in quest for equity; Kevin Hart is the wannabe newcomer who’s hot to end up both a cop and Cube’s new brother by marriage. Amusing! Together, they circled swapping wisecracks and quarreling until at long last an enormous distribution center explodes and Laurence Fishburne demonstrates to everybody generally accepted methods to shoot individuals in the mid-section legitimately. Showing little of the pizazz that made Taxi an unforeseen hit, chief Tim Story trudges through on autopilot, keeping the boisterous blasts turned up sufficiently uproarious to cover the sound of nobody chuckling at the jokes.
