My Penny of View : Detective Allen was a forensic accountant who prefer to do paperwork rather than chasing the criminals and Detective Terry has been stuck with Allen ever since he shot Derek Jeter. On the other hand, Detectives Danson and Highsmith were stars of police force. They were pursuing criminals in stylish way. One day, when Danson and Highsmith were chasing a group of professional bank robbers, both of them died when they jumped off a 20 stories building that they thought there was a bushes on the ground. When the stars of police force died, everyone wanted to replace them including Allen and Terry. They started to investigate on a billionaire who try to tempt the investors to take out their money to cover his company's lost. Will the other guys able to succeed? What kind of obstacles they will face?

I guess most of the people kinda look forward to the pairing of two rock stars-Samuel L. Jackson and The Rock. Anyway, they are just show up in the beginning of the movie and both of them died in a hilarious way. Then the other guys only come to action. I felt like I'm watching Dumb and Dumber. I think the development of the story quite slow and some of the jokes quite lame (or stupid). Story ended as predicted but I get to know the powerful of Toyota Prius. It sounded like "Let's jump into the Prius, crank up the Little River Band, catch the bad bankers and lock him up in the Federal Reserve."
