COP OUT is the sort of violent, foul-mouthed, buddy cop action-comedy that Bruce Willis can do in his sleep. That said, this movie has some pretty funny lines and it’s interesting the way the script weaves several different plotlines together. I also like the fact that the MacGuffin driving much of the plot is a valuable baseball card. Willis is okay; I tend to like him in just about anything. Tracey Morgan, who plays his partner, is something of an acquired taste, I guess, one that I haven’t fully acquired yet. But I really liked Seann William Scott (also an acquired taste) as a goofy burgler. You wouldn’t expect him to play a non-goofy character, would you? All in all, COP OUT is pretty good, nothing special but an enjoyable enough way to spend a couple of hours.
