Cop Out – A great Hom-Age.
by Lon Lopez
Within the first few minutes into Kevin Smith’s latest film, Cop Out, detective Jimmy Monroe (Bruce Willis) criticizes partner Paul Hodges’ (Tracy Morgan) movie quoting interrogation technique as ineffective. Hodges then explains to Monroe, that it’s Hom-Age, like a tribute to those who have come before. Before Monroe can explain that Hodges is talking about homage, Hodges is off to question the suspect in a hilarious, movie quoting riot. In a way, it’s as if Kevin Smith is foreshadowing our movie going experience with his foray into the buddy cop genre of films made popular in the eighties. Because once Cop Out gets started, it’s nothing but a Hom-Age to all the things that made those movies great.
