Harrison ford and Josh Hartnett play homicide detectives investigating the quadruple murder of an up-and-coming rap group. Yet, no, don't go in expecting a nailbiting police procedural.
The film is strewn with several cliches but I fail to see why reviewers tend to compare it to "Lethal Weapon" and "Rush Hour." The partners are not mismatched, not constantly annoying each other , and it is filled with interesting characters that make up for the generic storytelling.
Ford's character for instance moonlights as a real-estate agent who, despite not having sold a house in some time, dabbles in the business because being a cop can't pay the bills. Hartnetts character takes yoga lessons, in the process meeting women. This makes even the most generic scenes seem fresh and new.
So, when watching an otherwise predictable car chase, you will find yourself worrying more about the characters reactions than the actual car chase itself. This is a film that relies more on characters than action and eye-candy. You will probably wear a slight grin on your face when Hartnett re-enacts "A Streetcar Named Desire" on the balcony of a Beverly Hills condo, or when Ford closes a real estate deal on his cell phone in the middle of an intense gunfight.
Yes, the story is stale, but the characters are not, and that is probably the point. "Hollywood Homicide" puts itself a step above other cop films by offering characters (or caricatures thereof) that we can actually care for.

I suffered through this movie. It was billed as a comedy but neither myself nor any of the 4 people I watched it with cracked a giggle though the whole thing.
It was boring, the plot - well there really was no plot to speak of, the musical score was just junky characterless rap and the dialog was lame.
The car chase was a yawn, and I applauded the ending - it ended.
This movie is not even worth going into a description of it. Just skip it and save your money to see something decent.
I don't know what is going on with Harrison Ford lately but this should have been an embassment for him unless he was just trying to show is still cool to his new little girlfriend.
I was dissapointed that Bruce Greenwood and Martin Landau got roped into this nonsensical mess.
Sorry, this movie stunk.

Hollywood Homicide is fluff, but good fluff. It was nice seeing Harrison Ford play a lighter role than K19 the widowmaker and such. Josh Hartnett is well, Josh Hartnett... ok I guess, but not nearly at the acting level of other people his age. The script is funny, compensating for an underdeveloped plot, though I did begin to tire of cell phone jokes. Plus the chase scene was a bit too long. Other than that, this was a good summer movie, action and comedy rolled into one.

First of all, Hollywood Homicide is one of those rare great films saddled with a truly horrible trailer. Based on the trailer I never would have seen this film, but seeing two thumbs up from Ebert and Reoper aroused my curiousity and I'm glad it did.
Hollywood Homicide is brilliant in a unique way. The characters are rounded, funny and very, very human. No one is a freak, but everyone is funny.
While I could have done without some of the slapstick in the too long chase scene near the end, the inventiveness of the film's dialogue, situations and premise is fantastic.
Unlike the Lethal Weapon series which began as a serious cop film and then tried to reinvent itself as a comedy series, this film introduces itself as a comedy and stays true throughout and I would love to see more films with these characters.
In other words, if you're looking for Lethal Weapon 1 you're in the wrong place. But, if you're looking for Lethal Weapon 4 or Stake Out, you're about to see a comedy cop film far better than both.

I wasn't gonna go see this movie, but then Ebert and Roeper gave it "Two Thumbs Up" (and I typically respect Eberts reviews) so I figured maybe it's better than it looks.
Nope.
If you've seen the full trailer to this film, you've pretty much seen the movie. If your thinking not much happens in the trailer or there doesn't seem to be much sense of story, you're right. That's the movie. The first full hour of the film is almost completely pointless. The story seems void of any direction whatsoever. In the last quarter of the film, things finally seem to come together, but still it's about as climactic as anything you might have seen in an episode of T.J. Hooker.
Many will likely be seeing this film with expectations of seeing a Lethal Weapon type movie. Let me advise you not to expect this. The Josh Hartnett and Harrison Ford have almost no chemistry and neither one are believable as cops and the comedy... well there really isn't any. There should be. You're watching, and scenes play out as if they were supposed to be funny, but you aren't laughing.
...
All throughout watching this movie I could not help but observe that Harrison Ford and Josh Hartnett have no real sense of comedy. Judging by the rest of the performances of supporting characters, neither does the director. I kept wondering to myself, what is the point of this movie? It's definately trying to fill the shoes of an action/comedy, but there's as little action as there is comedy. And what is with the rap/hip-hop soundtrack? Even though this film is loosely about the investigation of some rap stars' murders, it seems completely out of place to the story and the target audience.
None of the actors give poor performances (excepting their lack of being funny), and I'd even go so far as to say this is the best I've seen Josh Hartnettt perform. But the movie just isn't good. It's not even entertaining. Bottom line: it's been a long time since I was this bored in a theatre.
