Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller are two of the funniest actors around these days, and they're even funnier when they're teamed up. Starsky and Hutch puts them in the roles of two drastically different cops chosen to work together. This approach may seem overdone, but Stiller and Wilson keep the screen fresh. They are both incredible actors and comedians; it would be hard to watch this film without laughing out loud.

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.

I remember having a discussion with a friend, once, about people in high school and how there are three groups of them - (1) the ones you hate, (2) your friends, and then the third group: the people that you could live without, but you simply don't have the energy to actively dislike them...so you're nice to 'em. Watching Starsky and Hutch last night, I realized that those three groups totally apply to movies, also - filth like Welcome To Mooseport easily falls into that first category, masterful cinema like The Passion slides into the second one, and then...well...stuff like Starsky and Hutch goes right into that third category. Unlike director Todd Philips' earlier films, Road Trip and Old School, there's a sweet, harmless quality to Hutch that, even though I can't say I loved it, I enjoyed myself.
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.

I never saw any of the old Starsky and Hutch television show and I'm not sure I ever want to, but the movie was very funny. After viewing the trailer I wasn't sure what to expect, but because of the long list of quality actors I gave it a chance and I'm glad that I did. Owen Wilson, Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Will Farrell were as funny as ever. This is a movie I can watch time after time and keep on laughing like it was the first time I've seen it. Don't miss this hilarious comedy.

when i first heard of the movie, i thought to myself well another boring movie with probably no backbone story just like Charlie`s angels (i love the original series, but the movies don`t do justice at all!) but then i saw the theatrical trailer i and i knew it was going to be awesome!!! why??? first of all, the actors, owen and ben have such a great chemistry together that they overshadow tag teams like richard and gene, among others, they know how to make it work, i mean it`s not the first time they`ve worked together, if you`ve followed the series you know they had a slick urban coolster friend called huggy bear and who better to play that part than mr. Snoop Dog, i mean c`mon man the combination of these three players is an explotion ready to happen, but if that`s not enough you also see great acting by vince vaugh, juliette lewis, carmen electra among others. From the beginning of the movie you know you`re in for a treat as barry manilow`s "can`t smile without you" starts things off, as we travel to the seventies (1975) and we enter the world of starsky and hutch. then they present us the two main characters and from the genesis of the movie we know what we`re going to experience, now i`m guessing that this is the origin of the friendship of these two fellas, which everybody knows it turns out to be a long one. Another great touch director todd phillips made was capturing the essence of that particular era with the clothes,way of life and great songs (the score is my favorite and a important piece if you will of a movie) with artists like chicago, sammy johns and the carpenters (i hope i spelled it correctly) and lets not forget when hutch sings "don`t give up on us baby" and vince dancing to the tune of "feel like makin`love" was out of this world!!!!!Read more ›
