Starring Bruce Tracy and Willis Morgan.
Another in the line of director Kevin Smith's
flicks (though not written by him), this one skewering the buddy cop
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.
