Reno 911!: Miami
A Movie Review

MPAA Rated - R

It's 1:24 Long

A Review by
The Dude on the Right
I vaguely remember watching an episode of "Reno 911!" way back when it started on Comedy Central, found it funny, but never got it set on my TiVo so I could become a fan. Then I saw the trailer for "Reno 911!: Miami" and knew this might be a movie perfect for me. And I was right, especially with my being King in The Land of the Easily Amused.

The movie version brings the crime-fighting crew of Reno to the world of Miami, complete with their film-crew that tapes everything "Cops" style. They are in Miami for a police convention, only their credentials donít seem to be there when they arrive. Shutout of the convention, our heroes go out for a night on the town, hoping to clear things up the next day. When the next day arrives, and they show back up at the convention center, they find out that there has been a terrorist attack at the convention center, quarantining all of the participants, leaving only the Reno officers to patrol Miami, as well as find the terrorists so they can then find the antidote so they can then save the day. And the crew hits the streets, only after they keep crashing the Miami Policeís Ford Mustangs on each trip out, to keep their version of peace.

I wonít go into the story of the movie any more because really, it isnít necessary. This is a movie of easy laughs, spotlighting all of the quirkiness of the Reno law enforcement personnel, from the tight-short wearing of Lt. Dangle (Thomas Lennon), to the soul sister of Deputy Williams (Niecy Nash), to the "Iím not a lesbian" of Deputy Kimball (Mary Birdsong), to the "I donít get why he doesnít love me" Deputy Wiegel (Kerry Kenny-Silver). There are bizarre interactions with a Miami drug lord, the attempt at saving a beached whale, a discovery about the history of Terry (Nick Swardson), and what seems to be the underlying thing to do at the end of the night for our crime-fighters, shown as the film crew covers all that is going on at the motel of our heroes on their first night in town.

The humor in "Reno 911!: Miami" is exactly what you will expect if you laughed during the trailer. If you thought it looked stupid, guess what, you will probably hate the movie. Me, though, I laughed my ass off, and really appreciated the scene that seemed to come about from a discussion like this while they were making the movie Ė "Well, since this movie is going to be rated R, we should have some blatant nudity for no apparent reason." "Youíre right, but how can we accomplish that for a movie taking place in Miami?" "I know, there can be a beached whale at a topless beach, and we can have a hot blonde with fantastic boobs and no top just be there, standing around while the rest of the cops try to save the whale." "Perfect!" Sorry to maybe ruin the surprise of the scene, but it was beautiful.

And so Iím giving "Reno 911!: Miami" 4 stars out of 5. If you are a resident of The Land of the Easily Amused you will probably find the movie very entertaining. If you are a resident of The Land of "I donít understand why the one cop wears those shorts", well, you might want to stay away.

Thatís it for this one! Iím The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
