Another in the line of director [[Creator/KevinSmith Kevin Smith's]] flicks (though not written by him), this one skewering the {{buddy cop|s}} picture.

BruceWillis is Jimmy Monroe, a grizzled, no-nonsense cop, and Tracy Morgan is his partner Paul Hodges, a somewhat abrasive, feelings-on-his-sleeve cop. A botched undercover operation (which in turn jeopardizes a huge drug sting two other cops are organizing) results in the two getting suspended from the force just before Jimmy's daughter has a huge wedding that Jimmy was hoping to pay for. Frustrated, he goes to sell a prize baseball card to get the cash needed for the wedding. Of course, things go even further south for Jimmy when the card then gets stolen along with one of Paul's guns.

spoof staring Creator/BruceWillis and Tracy Morgan. To date, it's the only feature Creator/KevinSmith directed without having written.

* MemeticMutation: Discussed at one point, as a kid explains [[ZeroWing "All Your Base"]] to his mother. Although [[FridgeLogic why a mom would just now be asking about a ten-year old meme, to a son about as old as said meme]], is another question entirely.[[invoked]]

* [[TheRival The Rivals]]: Officers Hunsaker and Mangold, to Paul and Jimmy. It's their investigation that the opening screwup ruins, and there's obviously some rivalry there throughout the whole movie. [[spoiler: They don't let it get in the way of their jobs, though; they vouch for Paul and Jimmy when it turns out their interference saves their lives.]]

Not to be confused with the French movie ''LeSamourai'', which was released under the title ''Cop Out'' in some parts of the US. Also not connected to WriterCopOut.

* AdvertisedExtra: While by no means an extra, the trailer makes it look as if Seann William Scott is one of the stars of the film, while he is really a supporting character.
