"Mr. Morgan, basically doing what he does on '30 Rock,' but with guns and profanity, is an amusing foil for the dependable Mr. Willis..."

"Willis turns out to be good foil for Morgan, creating a wall of amused restraint for the hyperbolic comic to bounce off of."

"Willis is stoic, unflappable and always palpably amused; Morgan sweats and raves, often to endearingly overheated effect. They make a fine team."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Action star Bruce Willis and ace comic Tracy Morgan play bickering-but-got-your-back Brooklyn buddy cops. Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy) directs the gritty, goofball goings-on as the guys hunt for a stolen 1952 mint-condition baseball card, a hunt plunging them into a gunslinging war with a deadly drug ring. Batter up, fans. The boys are ready to take you out to the ol' brawl game!
Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan team up for the Warner Bros. police buddy movie COP OUT in this Kevin Smith-directed production. From a script by Robb and Mark Cullen, the story centers around police detectives Jimmy (Willis), a no-B.S. divorced dad, and Paul (Morgan), a crazy-talking loose cannon. Despite nine years as partners, the two lawmen can still sometimes seem like polar opposites -- especially when Paul's unpredictable antics get them suspended without pay. Already strapped for cash and trying to pay for his daughter's wedding, Jimmy decides to sell a rare baseball card that's worth tens of thousands. Unfortunately, when the collector's shop is robbed and the card vanishes with the crook, Paul and Jimmy end up going rogue, tracking down the card and the drug ring behind its theft, all on their own time, and without any backup -- except for each other.
