Okay...nothing new...but I'm a little confused. My memory isn't that good, but I don't recall Starsky & Hutch as being a comedy? :side:

Surely it just wont be right, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson as Starsky & Hutch? :?

Having said that, the trailer does look very funny :)

Slated for a March 19th UK release.

I saw the trailer a while ago and first impressions reminded me of the Charlie's Angels movies. Which weren't that bad really

The trailer looked hilarious, I saw it a few weeks ago, more like 'Starsky & Hutch : The Piss Take' than any re-creation of the series. I've seen trailers before where all the funny bits in the 90 minute film were in the 60 second trailer, but I'm hopeful with the presence of Ben Stiller.

Same here, I quite like Owen Wilson too, after Shanghai Noon etc.

This film got a fairly good review in Metro - 4/5. Reviewer said they liked how it was totally ironic and yet faithful to the orginal at the same time. And the car was really cool, but the plot was unimportant :)

Come on, someone must have seen this? :) Any feedback?

I've seen it, actually agree with the metro review quoted above, though I would be inclinded to give it three rather than four out of five. It's a bit Police Academy (the original thankfully) crossed with the Starsky and Hutch series. Seeing that car in action again left me with a huge grin on my face TBH though :)

Just seen it and I agree 3 out of 5. Not as laugh out loud as I had hoped but I smiled all the way through and it was worth a watch. Almost all of the jokes worked and the feel of the whole movie was cool.

Speaking of jokes working/not working, did anyone when you saw it get the 'New Coke' gag?

Now don't go giving anything away for those of us that haven't seen it yet :side:

Finally saw the film a couple of nights ago. Very good, would recommend. It won't be close to making it into my top ten films or anything, but well worth a watch, especially if you like Stiller and Owen's work :)

Yup :lol: Suprisingly, not many others in the cinema seemed to :roll:

Nor when I saw it, :roll: Actually, it seemed like it was just me...
