Product Description

Big-screen action comedy based on the classic seventies cop series, starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson as the undercover police detectives David Starsky and Ken 'Hutch' Hutchinson. The pair are reluctant partners and when assigned their latest case by their boss, Captain Dobey (Fred Williamson), the duo realise that the cocaine dealer they are after, Reese Feldman (Vince Vaughn), is the same criminal who was involved in their very first case. The chase begins, with the becardiganed Starsky and laid-back Hutch wise-cracking their way through the streets of Bay City in the famous souped-up red-and-white Ford Gran Torino, helped by their streetwise informant, Huggy Bear (Snoop Dogg). The film boasts an appearance by the original Starsky and Hutch actors, Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul.

From Amazon.co.uk

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson--dark, wiry, and tense meets blond, lanky, and loose--make a solid comic team (and previously appeared together in Zoolander), but the funniest man in Starsky and Hutch is Vince Vaughn. Vaughn dives into his role as a sleazy drug dealer (who nonetheless buys a pony for his daughter's bat mitzvah) with the offhand zest that he brings to almost every role (from Swingers to Old School) and effortlessly steals every scene he's in. Vaughn has concocted a new and undetectable kind of cocaine, and only two cops who aren't afraid to break the rules--our titular pair--can catch him. But the plot isn't the point; mocking-yet-loving jabs at the '70s, including the homoerotic overtones of Starsky and Hutch's partnership, are what this movie is about. The satire is surprisingly mild but entertaining nonetheless, particularly when Vaughn or Snoop Dogg (as informant Huggy Bear) hold the screen. --Bret Fetzer

Format: DVD
"Starsky & Hutch" exceeds expectations, which you have to admit have been lowered considerably when it comes to all of the movies that have been made recycling old television shows. This is perhaps to be expected when you understand that the target audience for these films consists of people who have probably never seen an episode of "I Spy" or "The Mod Squad," and who are would be more familiar with the famous poster of Farrah Fawcett than any single episode of "Charlie's Angels." But this 2004 comedy has two advantages.
First, there is a rich tradition of buddy films where a "good" person and a "bad" person team up and overcome their differences to work together, extending back from Riggs & Murtaugh to Butch & Sundance, all the way back to Katie Scarlet & Miss Melly. "Starsky" and "Hutch" plays with this tried and true formula, mainly by tweaking it, but the key thing is that the film embraces the idea at the same time it is lampooning it. This is, all things considered, a gentle comedy telling the story of how Starksy and Hutch came to meet, even with Snoop Dogg bringing something of an edge to Huggy Bear.
Second, there is pretty good chemistry between Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson as Starsky and Hutch; they should since this is their sixth film together. In fact, this is the most chemistry Stiller has shown with anybody in one of his films since he worked with DeNiro. Stiller is helped by the fact that his Starsky tends to go over the top but still manages to get the job done. You keep thinking he is about to make a fool of himself, and he certainly moves in that direction, but things never get so far out of hand that he becomes just a big joke.

You remember Starsky and Hutch the series? Two tough, unconventional cops riding around in a red Torino with a white stripe that gave us decent (and sometimes gritty) stories laced with humour on a Saturday night? Well forget that, because this film is nothing like it.
The characters of Starsky and Hutch have been changed so much they are unrecognisable - even allowing for the fact that this film is set before the series. Starsky is changed from a laid back, funny, brash, junk food guzzler who never exercises and rarely phones his (very much alive) mum into a manic, by-the-book, jogging loner with a (dead ex-cop) mother complex. Hutch is changed from an educated, quite reserved (compared to Starsky, anyway) fitness fad devotee and dedicated cop who was prone to the odd moral rant, to a cocaine sniffing, law breaking, lazy, couldn't-care-less cop. And the whole point with Huggy Bear in the series was that he was only a small-time, some-time bender of the law and so Starsky and Hutch could consort with him with a clear conscience, but here he is some sort of crime boss. It's a shame because the original characters gave us plenty of quirks that could have been exploited for out and out humour. Instead what we are left with is a film bearing the name Starsky and Hutch but which bears no resemblance to its namesake in anything but look.
This doesn't mean it's a bad film, though. Stiller's Starsky really does look like the genuine article and his run (very important to some of us) is spot on. The clothing and bad disguises could have been lifted straight out of the TV series. The crime story (manufacturing a drug that is undetectable) is actually quite good and Vince Vaughn makes a good main villain. And most importantly for a comedy, it is funny. Really funny in places.

Not having watched the Starsky and Hutch tv programme in the 70's, i wasn't quite sure what too expect from the film. I was pleasantly suprised, but later found out that the tv programme was nothing like the film.
This film is very funny in many parts, but can be just a little too silly in others. The cast is great, especially Wilson, Stiller and Ferrell, who work so well together. Their scene in the jail is absolutely hilarious i must add. Also, Snoop Dogg was an inspired choice for Huggy Bear and he almost steals the show with his outragous outfits.
All in all, a pretty damn good film with plenty of laughs.

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson are a rare comedy pairing. Starting out as a Spillar funnyman / fall guy to Owen's straight coolness in the superb Meet the Parents and Zoolander, in Starsky and Hutch they move up to a new level of comedic equality; with Owen playing preposterously on his good looks, and Stiller admirably wallowing in short-man syndrome. The film's plot ambles along in a turgid and graceless manner, but god it is funny. It's all down to Stiller and Owen's chemistry; and a hilarious cameo from the charismatic (and shockingly thin) Snoop Dogg, who's terrible acting just makes him all the cooler. Like all the best comedy films, repeat viewings reveal subtle jokes missed before, and others have timing and flare that make them funnier second, third and fourth time around. It doesn't pull any punches either - Owen has a threesome with Stiller's girl, a pony gets machine-gunned, there's cocaine in-jokes, and Snoop handles his weapons with a confidence that belies his real-life suspected murderer status. Whilst in a way the film itself is poor, this is all about the three leads, and is very, very funny - which is what counts.
