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.
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
