Cop Out is the straighter comedy of the two. The partners Jimmie Monroe and Paul Hodges (Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan) bungle a sting operation, get suspension without pay, then take matters into their own hands when Jimmie's valuable baseball card is stolen when he's trying to sell it. Jimmie needs the cash from the sale to finance his daughter's wedding. Turns out there's a local crime boss who loves sports memorabilia who ends up with the card. His brother is the subject of the failed sting, and there's a gorgeous woman in the trunk of his car. Of course it gets very complicated and everything works out for Jimmie and Paul.
|This sting operation didn't work out quite as planned.|
|Allen and Terry have a love-hate relationship. Mostly hate.|
Bottom line, The Other Guys, 2 1/2 stars. Cop Out, 2 stars.
