Starsky and Hutch

Starsky and Hutch

Cast: Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Snoop Dogg, Vince Vaughn

Director: Todd Phillips

Detective David Starsky (Ben Stiller) is the most dedicated undercover cop working the mean streets of Bay City, California. 

Maniacally devoted to his job, when he's on duty no crime goes unpunished - and he's always on duty. 

And that's a good thing, because he has some metaphorically big shoes to fill: his mother was a legend on the force, one of the best cops in the history of Bay City. 

But while his mom is stuck with the same partner throughout her entire career, due to his extremely zealous brand of police work, Starsky burns through partners faster than his beloved Gran Torino goes through spark plugs.

Detective Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson (Owen Wilson) is having career issues of his own - he's a good cop, but his hazardously laidback personality and desire for a quick buck don't always get the job done. 

He has excellent instincts, he just needs a little bit of focus to keep him on the admittedly less profitable side of the law. 

Exasperated Bay City Police Captain Dobey (Fred Williamson) has found the perfect solution for two of his  biggest problems: pair up Starsky and Hutch and put them out on the streets.

As soon as the two mismatched crime fighters unhappily begin their first day on the beat as a team, a "floater" turns up on the Bay City coastline. 

With the help of Hutch's dynamite, street-savvy informant Huggy Bear (Snoop Dogg), the two begin to unravel the mysterious murder case. 

Investigating their first clue, the boys meet Staci (Carmen Electra) and Holly (Amy Smart), Bay City Cheerleaders who are more than eager to help - in any way they can.

All signs seem to point at wealthy businessman Reese Feldman (Vince Vaughn), but Starsky and Hutch just can't seem to make a case against him. 

Unbeknownst to them, Feldman has cooked up a plan to foil the DEA and is plotting the biggest and most lucrative drug deal of his career.

The unlikely duo will use their canniest undercover skills, hardcore street smarts and striking good looks to solve the crime and make sure the criminal does the time. 

Because, as David Starsky says, "In Bay City, when you cross the line, your n*ts are mine."
