Take a trip to the '70s with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson for disco, big hair and the case that first paired the legendary crime-fighting team of Starsky & Hutch! Tightly wound Detective David Starsky (Stiller) is forced to partner with easygoing Detective Ken Hutchinson (Wilson) to solve a high stakes case. Now the city may never be the same as the two, helped by savvy street informant Huggy Bear (platinum-selling rapper and actor Snoop Dogg), must work together to catch smooth-talking drug entrepreneur Reese Feldman (Vince Vaughn).]]>

Owen Wilson is Hutch, a laid back cop that likes to bend the rules. He never gets any work done and even drinks on the job. Starsky is the exact opposite. He is uptight and follows the rules to the book. You wouldn't guess, but he's also one hell of a driver. His car of choice is a red Grand Torino, and man can he make it fly. However, both Starsky and Hutch are outcastes at the police office, so they are put together. Naturally, the two characters hate each other when first paired up.
They soon get on the case of some drug dealers who are trying to get a new genetically engineered type of cocaine onto the streets. Vince Vaughn does an incredible job as the ringleader of this operation. He is serious and sinister in a way that just makes you laugh.
And then there is the infamous Huggy Bear. I've never seen the television series so I have no idea what he's supposed to be like, but Snoop Dogg is hilarious. Huggy Bear calls himself an urban informer. Basically he tells Hutch what the word on the street is so Hutch won't go and bust him. I think Snoop Dogg did a great job acting this part because he really didn't have to act. Huggy Bear wears lots of bling, talks slowly in a mellow voice, and knows a lot about drugs. Just like Snoop Dogg.
One of my favorite scenes pits Starsky against Dancing Rick in a disco dance off. It sounds cheesy, and it is.Read more ›
The '70's cop show isn't so much parodied in the movie but used as a springboard to pair Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, who - with the right project (The Royal Tenenbaums) - can rock. It's kind of a Felix and Oscar cliche, but Stiller's Starsky is the fastidious, by-the-book cop and Wilson's Hutch just knows a little too much about cocaine. The movie predates the show, imagining how the two got together and then throwing them into various situations that sometimes score and other times fall completely flat. Snoop Dog's bit part as Huggy Bear just didn't do anything for me - usually, that '70's blaxploitation schtick is hilarious (i.e. Undercover Brother or anything on Chapelle's Show), but he fits in like an afterthought, the director trying to pull to another demographic. What does work, though, is a great scene where Starsky accidentally ingests cocaine and excitedly enters a disco contest.Read more ›

This movie was just okay. I steamed it from my Amazon Prime to my TV as I do many of the TV shows & movies I watch. Played perfectly but the movie was just kind of boring & meh.Published 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
Wilson did a nice job but he couldn't save the movie from Stiller's hack job acting or the childish writing. I couldn't sit through it all.Published 2 months ago by Drivin Sideways
