Cop Out
A comedy about a veteran NYPD cop whose rare baseball card is stolen. Since it’s his only hope to pay for his daughter’s upcoming wedding, he recruits his partner to track down the thief, a memorabilia-obsessed gangster. 

Cop Out might better be called crap out, unfortunately. I actually like Bruce Willis. I thought he was terrific in Die Hard. In this one he plays a burned out cop with Tracy Morgan from 30 Rock who was just plain wretched in this. I’m not sure what this movie is trying to do. Whether it is trying to be funny, or just your average cop movie. It does neither. There are four assassinations in the first half hour including one in a church. I just don’t understand the point of this movie. I thought it was violent and unpleasant and sexist and incredibly misogynistic. This is the movie that I think is absolutely missable. Zero stars.
