Starsky and Hutch Movie Review
Courtesy of Warner Bros.
Long before your time, a crime fighting duo was tearing up the small screen with their funky fashions and witty banter. Now you have the opportunity to catch some of the good ol' Starsky and Hutch fun. Will this flick win you over or is it only something the 'rents can enjoy? Find out here!
Starsky and Hutch - The Good Old Days
Way back in 1975, a team of plainclothes officers
hit the streets of Bay City (AKA San Francisco). They didn't always play by the rules
, but that's what made them the best cops
the city had ever seen. Fast forward to 2004
and you've got a remake
of one of the coolest retro TV shows
. Ben Stiller (who plays Detective David Starsky) and Owen Wilson (who plays Detective Ken Hutchinson) have stepped up to the plate
to take over the roles of Starsky and Hutch and they mean business. Stiller and Wilson
are also joined by some pretty hot stars
, like Snoop Dogg (as Huggy Bear), Vince Vaughn (as Reese Feldman) and Will Ferrell
Starsky and Hutch - Dy-no-mite!
There's no doubt that Starsky and Hutch
will have you rolling in the aisles with laughter. From start to finish
the jokes keep coming from the comic geniuses, Ben Stiller
and Owen Wilson. And if the great script doesn't keep you riveted, then the often-comical '70s style
will. The local cheerleaders
shake their stuff in matching terry cloth outfits and Huggy Bear is always decked out in some elaborate get-up
, complete with some serious bling bling. Once again, Will Ferrell creates a character that you'll totally fall in love
with - even though he's a creepy convict
with an unusual obsession with dragons
. But wait - there's more! Starsky and Hutch has one killer soundtrack
that you'll be grooving to long after the movie is over.
Starsky and Hutch - What a Bummer!
Starsky and Hutch is a great flick
but might not be the kind of movie you should see with your younger sibs
. At times Starsky and Hutch seems to glorify crime
a little too much (which is uncool!), but other than that it's a pretty solid film
. Don't expect too much from Starsky and Hutch though - it's jam-packed with silly jokes
but not a whole lot else.
Starsky and Hutch - DVD Features
In true Starsky and Hutch fashion, the DVD is packed with over-the-top
features. There's behind-the-scenes
footage that is just as funny as the movie itself and join Snoop Dogg
for a little Fashion Fa Shizzle Wit Huggy Bizzle
. How could you turn that down?
Starsky and Hutch - The Bottom Line
If you're looking for some silly, slap-stick humor
, then Starsky and Hutch is the movie for you! This is definitely a flick you'll be able to catch with your buds
on a Friday night and you'll still be talking
about it on Monday morning.
