With director Kevin Smith’s Cop Out opening next weekend, Warner Bros. has provided us with seven clips from the film. The film stars Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan as two New York City police officers up against a memorabilia-obsessed gangster. Needless to say, comedy ensues. The thing to know about Cop Out is Kevin Smith didn’t write the film, he only directed. And while I’m still unsure about the film, I’ll say the first clip made me laugh. The clip has Tracy Morgan quoting lines from famous movies and acting crazy. Hit the jump to watch the clips. I’ve also provided the full synopsis:
As always, are the clips are in the player below. Once you push play you might have to watch a pre-roll ad and then all the clips will play in order. Sorry about the pre-roll, it pays for the bandwidth.
Directed by Kevin Smith, “Cop Out” features two longtime NYPD partners on the trail of a stolen, rare, mint-condition baseball card who find themselves up against a merciless, memorabilia-obsessed gangster. But before they can recover the prized ’52 Pafko, they must first rescue a Mexican beauty who holds the key to millions of dollars in off-shore bank accounts-and who has already witnessed one high-profile murder because of them.
Veteran detective Jimmy Monroe (Bruce Willis) needs to cash in on his perfect Pafko in order to pay for his daughter’s upcoming wedding, but in the tradition of everything that can go wrong…it’s pilfered before he has a chance to collect. Paul Hodges (Tracy Morgan) is Jimmy’s “partner-against-crime,” whose preoccupation with his wife’s alleged infidelity makes it hard for him to keep his eye on the ball, or his mind on the crime. Already in trouble and with nothing left to lose, Jimmy and Paul will have to break all the rules-including enlisting the aid of stoner thief Dave (Seann William Scott), who’s working Paul’s last nerve as Paul and Jimmy try to work the case.
