Young, disciplined rookie who plays by the book gets paired with a loose cannon grizzled veteran. Haven’t I seen this one before?
Obama-Biden: clearly the Democratic Party kingmakers were out to make the perfect Buddy Cop pairing for this fall’s election! Former rivals. One’s black, the other’s white. One’s a rookie, the other’s a grizzled veteran. Together, they’ll fight crime, learn something about themselves, and help promote racial reconciliation.
It’s a good thing Obama didn’t pick an Asian guy as the second half of his Buddy Cop duo…that hasn’t worked out so well in the past:
Exhibit B: “Collision Course,” with…Pat Morita…and Jay Leno??? WTF???
Exhibit A: “Rush Hour.” Beach Boys! Great American Music! Ha ha, my accent so funny!
BONUS: got a better title + tag line combination? Let me see it in the comments and I’ll make a new poster version from the best submission. Bonus points submissions that include a subitle for CAPITOL PUNISHMENT II. After all, every good Buddy Cop Movie gets a sequel, right?
