3-episodes of Reno 911! from Comedy Central and play them
back to back. While it may not be as cohesive as the movie
it delivers the same laughs or lack there of.
Based on the popular Comedy Central series Reno 911 now in
its fifth season. The Reno Sheriff's Department lead by Lt.
Jim Dangle is invited to the American Police Convention in
Miami Beach. When they arrive at the convention, they find
that the Reno sheriff’s department is not registered. Left
to fend for themselves in Miami, they find a place to stay
at a crummy motel named International Inn were the manager
refers to everything as being a suck fest. The next day the
officers from Reno again try to enter the convention, as
luck would have it, they are spared from a bioterrorism
attack inside the convention that has quarantine 2000 law
enforcement officials. Mayhem ensues when the officers from
Reno are the only officers left to keep the streets of Miami
safe. Together the officers fend of alligators, patrol the
beach and even meet a want to be scarface played by Paul
Rudd (Night at the Museum, Knocked Up)
I’ve watched a hand full of Reno 911! episodes here and
there and while they do make me laugh, the laughs are few
and far between. I had the same reaction when watching the
movie. I laughed at a couple of scenes, but I didn’t really
find the movie as a whole funny. My favorite scene came
towards the end when Paul Reubens (aka Peewee Herman)
appears and validates his son once and for all. Fans of the
TV series will thoroughly enjoy this movie at it stays true
to the show. But if you do not enjoy the TV show, you’ll
probably won’t enjoy the movie either.
