Join uptight David Starsky and laid-back Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson as they're paired for the first time as undercover cops. The new partners must overcome their differences to solve an important case with help from street informant Huggy Bear and persuasive criminal Reese Feldman.
As a man who actually remembers the original television series starring David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser, it pains me to say that Todd Phillips got most of the feel of this film right. Turning it into an action comedy took a little of the shine off it for me, but when the laughs come they're pretty good despite the presence of Owen Wilson and the terminally unfunny Vince Vaughn.
Keeping the seventies setting was a good idea. It gave both Stiller and Wilson the chance to rock those seventies outfits and also let Snoop Dogg wear his own clothes as pimp-daddy Huggy Bear. Giving us an origin story of Starsky and Hutch getting together also set the scene for…
It's funny cause Ben Stiller thinks the cocaine is sugar.
An entertaining comedy 'adaptation' of the 70s TV show, stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson as the title cops. Both leads are in on the joke and have fantastic chemistry. Supporting roles are filled out by an interesting mixture of actors and non actors, highlighted by Snoop Dogg as Huggy Bear. There are some great action set pieces, some over-the-top 70s flair and many memorable lines and scenes. This film had no business being any good, but director Todd Phillips and the cast make it much more than just a time filler. Remember, Corky regenerates; It's a defense mechanism.
Previously thinking that good cop comedies already have died out I have to admit 'Starsky & Hutch' was a pretty amusing ride in this red-and-white Ford Torino. Although not reinveting the wheel, it surprised me with great chemistry between Stiller and Wilson, making fun of its own genre and over the top moments that were pleasantly tame and civil compared to other comedy productions which simply fail to make me laugh. Starsky and Hutch however succeeded in that for the most part, so I'd gladly put a donut on its tombstone.
Cop-Komödien gehören eigentlich einem Genre an, dem ich mittlerweile schon fast jede Art des Humors abgesprochen hätte, doch erstaunlicherweise hat mir 'Starsky & Hutch' einen recht unterhaltsamen Abend bereitet.…
I used to love this one as a kid, so it's a shame how this rewatch reveals how much of an empty film it is. It's never really laugh-out-loud funny, the character development is clunky and predictable, none of the set-pieces really stand out and all of the supporting characters barely make an impression, apart from Vince Vaughn's villain.
The two leads, however, share some great chemistry. I'm no fan of either actor, but they both make this a pleasant viewing, albeit a forgettable one.
Anyone old enough to remember the seventies tv show would know that although the series had some humour it was not a comedy. Sure every episode there would be something funny but it was essentially a cop show.
Todd Phillips decided it would be great as a comedy and cast two well known comedy actors and threw in Snoop Dog for good measure and it worked. Vince Vaughn gives his usual comedic touch to proceedings in a well worked and often very funny film. Will Ferrell's cameo was hilarious and although the plot was nonsense the two leads captured the seventies look and feel brilliantly. The real star of the tv show was that Gran Torino and it still gave me goosebumps when it roared onto screen. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson give Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul a run for their money as the titular heroes and that car took me back to my childhood.
Wow I didn't think this would work and to be fair, I felt at moments it didn't, but then the film gets into this kind of cool and funny streak that tops this movie off nicely. Starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson (oh and basically all their mates), this is one movie that has some comedic talent on show, even if overall this isn't a great comedy.
Will Ferrell has to have the funniest character as the prisoner obsessed with dragons, his work here is fine indeed and he appears at a moment where the film starts to slow down a little. Todd Phillips manages a good job in the director chair (and co-writing) and it feels like he just…
In a world of remakes and reboots, Todd Phillips Starsky & Hutch is an underrated gem that holds up the laughs each time I come back to it.
Phillips and DP Barry Peterson (Jump Street movies) channel the 70s aesthetic and vibe accurately complete with dramatic action zooms. Stiller and Wilson are a fine pairing coming after Zoolander; when they were in their A game. Vince Vaughn is fine as the antagonist but nowhere near as great as he would go on to be in Wedding Crashers.
Starsky & Hutch feels authentic and while it's comedic tone may put off fans of the TV show, it's still a ton of fun.
sometimes it looks like I have good taste in film and then I watch shit like this
also I stopped watching this half way through and put on bojack horseman instead because I just,, Couldn't continue
I watched this on Netflix
Oh how a funny comedy is so hard to find these days. I've forgotten about this film, I've owned it on DVD for some time and a few years ago I used to watch it on the regular. I like Owen Wilson and Ben Stillers partnership, it works in Zoolander and it works really well here. The director Todd Phillips had made some really good comedy films, The Hangover, Due Date and Old School. I always forget that this film is one of his.
The plot follows the start of Starsky and Hutchs relationship, they don't really like each other to say the least. They've been forced to work together due to their career stumbling.…
Daft and nothing like the original
Littered with cameos but it does make me laugh a fair bit
American television in the 1970’s consisted of programmes that were highly popular at the time of their releases, but over time became somewhat forgotten until the last twenty years where Hollywood has snatched them from television history and transformed them into cinematic vehicles. With some shows transformed into massive films coming in the form of Mission: Impossible and Charlie’s Angels, and others made into smaller, nevertheless memorable films, such as Get Smart and The Dukes of Hazzard, 70’s television appears to be a fruitful decade for cinematic adaptations. Starsky & Hutch is perhaps the most special of the lot to come out of the 70’s as its action-cop roots were evolved into comedic-action-cop allowing the film to expand its eye in…
Very solid, good laughs and doesn't outstay it's welcome though. Major problem is the fact that it's over lit to an extent that it literally looks like lights are being directed at the actors faces in moments. It looks like poop.
Es musste so kommen: Nachdem nun wirklich jede klassische amerikanische TV-Serie als Kinofilm verwurstet wurde (oder noch wird), war es 2004 nun soweit bei Starsky & Hutch.
Im Unterschied zu vielen anderen der genannten Remakes wurde hierbei das Setting der Originalserie möglichst genau beibehalten, d.h. die 70er sitzen in jedem Detail, und das macht eine Menge Spaß! Zudem sind Ben Stiller als David Starsky und Owen Wilson als Ken Hutchinson kongenial besetzt. Es ist fast unheimlich, wie sehr sie ihren Vorbildern gleichen. Aber auch die restliche Besetzung (insbesondere Snoop Dogg als Huggy Bear!) ist gut gewählt und schafft alle Voraussetzungen für eine erstklassige Aufbereitung des Stoffs.
Leider funktioniert der Film nicht unbedingt so, wie er es könnte und das liegt vor…
