For Reno 911 fans who believe that Comedy Central's improv-driven mock-reality series could benefit from more unbleeped profanity, uncensored sex scenes, and nudity, the feature-length R-rated Miami will be just the ticket. Perhaps less a movie than it is a Very Special Episode, Miami transplants short-shorts-bedecked Lt. Dangle (Thomas Lennon) and company to Miami for the American Police Convention ("They invited everybody"). No sooner can you say "bio-terrorism" than the hotel is quarantined, and Wahoe County's hapless misfits, shut out when their credentials can't be found, must step in and save the city from "complete chaos." Complete chaos ensues. As with the series, Miami unfolds in a series of hit and miss bits. The funniest are those that hew closest to the Cops template, such as an early "814" call that does not, as the officers believe, decode as armed intruder, but actually involves a loose chicken, and an encounter with a taunting good ol' boy who, when faced with an alligator in a swimming pool, boldly goes where officers Jones (Cedric Yarbrough) and Garcia (Carlos Alazraqui) fear to tread.
Happily, as was not the case with Borat, no innocent or unsuspecting citizens were emotionally harmed during the making of this movie. All of the jokes and humiliations are at the Reno squad's expense. Miami benefits from some subtle (and not so subtle) stunt casting, including Patton Oswalt (The King of Queens) in a small but pivotal role as the deputy assistant mayor, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's hilarious, albeit short-lived cameo as a gung-ho bomb squad leader. It is a tribute to the crack ensemble that Reno's intimately etched characters do not need much of an introduction, and can be appreciated by those who have not seen the show. But longtime viewers are issued this warning that Miami crosses with even more impunity the thin blue line of good taste. A Rear Window homage in which we view each officer indulging in some alone time in their fleabag motel rooms may not be as bad as Borat's wrestling match, but really, there ought to be a law! --Donald Liebenson

Dangle and his crew have been invited to a law enforcement convention in the great city of Miami, and being the schumks they are, they board their bus and travel to it. However, due to a computer mixup, they arrive at the convention and are not registered, so they are forced to stay at a seedy motel. This sets up the scenario of the movie perfectly, as a plague sweeps through the convention and it's up to our lowly team to protect the streets of Miami.
Those of you who have seen Reno 911! before are very aware of the bawdy, slapstick brand of humor often prsented on the show. The movie banks on that type of humor and does it very effectively. On several occasions, I found myself laughing so hard that I couldn't breathe. The theater that I saw this movie in was crowded, and clearly the crowd enjoyed it just as much as I. Those people who haven't seen it might be put off a bit by the humor at first (I mean, can anyone possible explain Trudy to anyone?).
Kudos to everyone that works so hard on Reno 911 to give us weekly laughs, and for creating an equally wonderful movie experience!
When the Reno sheriff's department is invited to a law enforcement convention in Miami, they all travel--by bus--to the city. Naturally, when they get to the convention these Keystone Cops are denied admission because "they're not in the system." After the whole convention of police officers becomes trapped in the center because of a biological attack, our gang from Reno are the only people who can save the day.
Look for some funny moments with several members of the Reno police force. There are a few good laughs when Deputy Clementine Johnson (Wendi McLendon-Covey) tries to find out whose face she had tattooed on her breast one night when she was drunk; and Deputy Raineesha Williams (Niecy Nash) does her best work not with spoken lines but with her "faces." Raineesha and Deputy Trudy Wiegel (Kerri Kenney) have a silly conversation while on Miami beach patrol; and Deputy Travis Junior (Robert Ben Garant) has some funny moments when he attempts to woo a young lady for some romance.
The DVD comes with three optional commentaries. One commentary is by the directors; and two others are by actors in the film who comment on the film as if they were the people they portray and not who they are in real life. There are extended scenes as well.
