The film was based on several real-life experiences faced by police officers, and took cues from other successful "buddy cop" films like ''LethalWeapon''. It was stuck in DevelopmentHell for several years, and changed gears midway through production when it was reworked from a serious drama to a comedic vehicle for Ford and Hartnett.

Detective Joe Gavilan (Ford) is a [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] over-the-hill cop who finds himself partnered with a young recruit, K.C. Calden (Hartnett), to find the culprit behind the massacre of a rap group, in what appears to be a gang-related shooting. Gavilan could care less about the case (as he moonlights as a real estate broker), while Calden has spent the past several years trying to find the man who murdered his father in the line of duty. The duo end up trailing a record label producer, Antoine Sartain ([[GreysAnatomy Isaiah Washington]]), who knows more information he lets on, and interact with a diverse cast of characters, including a psychic, an Internal Affairs investigator named Macko (Bruce Greenwood) obsessed with revenge against Gavilan, rap artists and more as they try to get to the bottom of the case.
