Thrown together as partners, two detectives (Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson) investigate a cocaine dealer suspected of murder.
" Apart from wardrobe and hair, the two heroes completely miss the spirit that made the original spark. "
" The worst thing about Starsky & Hutch is how devoid of actual jokes the movie is. It's all premise, no substance. "
" There is a comic-book devouring, Playboy-stashing adolescent male heart thumping rather sweetly at the core of this homage-spoof. "
" Forget Mel Gibson, this is the year's biggest bummer for the Jews: that their biggest box-office champ, apart from Jesus, is the image of angry impotence. "
" A surprisingly funny movie. "
" All in all, the film has a certain authenticity, capturing the spirit of the series. "
" Too amiable to cook up anything truly memorable... "
" The ceaseless Hollywood plundering of '70s television definitely tests one's patience, and Starsky & Hutch could have been more compact. In all, though, the movie makes for a funky good time. "
" A scattershot cop comedy that aims its parodistic firepower not at any single target -- least of all its namesake -- but at an entire decade. "
" Stiller and Wilson look bewildered. "
" A sterling supporting cast -- down to the tiniest bit parts -- provides enough astringent intelligence to make the slobbering sentimentality go down with ease. "
" Although Starsky & Hutch is a movie without a sincere moment, somehow it never seems cynical. "
" Moves slowly and without much grace; it tries to jiggle laughs out of us instead of letting them flow freely. "
" Probably the most enjoyable Hollywood update of a decades-old TV series since the first Brady Bunch movie. "
" Starsky & Hutch is funny throughout, but with a handful of really hilarious moments of a kind that most comedies just don't deliver. "
" A really good not-great movie, the kind that would be classified as a guilty pleasure were it not executed with guilt-free honesty and good nature. "
" The stars give [the movie] so many knee-slapper moments you'll want to wear long thick pants to save your thighs. "
" This S&H is only as funny as you can imagine Stiller and Wilson being. For me, that's pretty funny. "
" An enjoyably stupid night at the movies. "
" A movie that manages to capture the swinging '70s vibe while effectively satirizing it. "
