Sometimesí you get exactly what you expect in a movie, and
sometimes you donít. For "Starsky & Hutch" you get exactly what you
expect, especially with the likes of Ben Stiller playing Starsky and
Owen Wilson playing Hutch. Thatís good enough, but adding the likes of
Vince Vaughn as the bad guy Reese Feldman, Amy Smart and Carmen
Electra as a couple of cheerleaders, Will Farrell as the creepy Big
Earl, and Snoop Dogg as Huggy Bear well, you get a great dude comedy
that hip dudettes might find funny as well.
Starsky & Hutch
A Movie Review
As far as the story goes, Starsky is the straight-laced cop, trying
to do things by the book, but still getting in trouble and not able to
hold a partner. Hutch is the cop who is a little off-kilter, pulling a
side job robbing bookies now and then, and generally nonchalant. Their
boss decides they are perfect for each other, and perfect they are.
The stumble upon some news with the help of Huggy Bear that a big
cocaine sale is going down soon, and slowly start to put the pieces
together. All the while hilarity ensues as our heroes get in trouble
with the department, pick up a couple of cheerleaders, shoot a horse,
and speed around in one of the coolest TV cars out there, the Gran
Really, thatís all you need to know about the plot because itís not
essential for this to be a good movie. What is essential for this
movie is for the conflicting personalities of Starsky and Hutch to
work, which they do, for there to be some good-looking dudettes making
out, which there are, for the bad guy to be overly arrogant, which he
is, and for the movie just to be fun, which it is. Stiller plays the
good guy as well as he played it in "Meet the Parents," and Wilson is
great as Hutch, bringing his goofiness in great contrast to Starsky.
Snoop Dogg pretty much plays himself, which is perfect for his place
as Huggy Bear, and Vince Vaughn is great as the stereotypical comedic
drug lord. And Iíll tell you what, Amy Smart (whom I'm a big fan of
her body of work) and Carmen Electra arenít too bad to look at either.
This movie wonít win any Academy Awards, and Iíll be probably wonít
even be nominated, but it is entertaining in the way you want it.
Thereís a little bit of something for everyone, although I would have
rather had it rated R so they could show some quality nudity. Even so,
the nude scene in it is very funny.
For "Starsky & Hutch" Iím giving it 4 stars out of 4. You get what
you pay for, and thereís even a little homage to the original Starsky
and original Hutch which is pretty funny.
Thatís it for this one! Iím The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
