Take a trip to the '70s with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson for disco, big hair and the case that first paired the legendary crime-fighting team of Starsky & Hutch! Tightly wound Detective David Starsky (Stiller) is forced to partner with easygoing Detective Ken Hutchinson (Wilson) to solve a high stakes case. Now the city may never be the same as the two, helped by savvy street informant Huggy Bear (platinum-selling rapper and actor Snoop Dogg), must work together to catch smooth-talking drug entrepreneur Reese Feldman (Vince Vaughn).

Critics Consensus: It's uneven and occasionally somewhat aimless, but Starsky & Hutch benefits from Stiller and Wilson's chemistry and a surprisingly warm-hearted script.

Too amiable to cook up anything truly memorable...

Silly, but lots of fun for older teens.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has very explicit sexual situations and references for a PG-13, including "comic" gay overtones, a threesome (with girls kissing each other), and the swapping of mild sexual favors for information from an informant. A character accidentally ingests cocaine, and his strung-out meltdown is played for humor. Other characters drink and use cocaine (off-camera) and the plot centers on a huge cocaine deal. Characters are in peril. One is killed and a child is injured. There's some strong language, including racial epithets. A strength of the movie is the way that diverse characters work together. Some audience members may be offended by the fact that the villain is Jewish.
