Reno 911!: Miami

Reno 911!: Miami

Directed: Robert Ben Garant
Starring: Thomas Lennon, Robert Ben Garant

The Reno cops head to Miami for a police convention.

The movie was very much like the show where some jokes are funny and others fall flat. What the movie seemed to have more of than the show, besides the ability to have nudity and cussing, was some bits went on for too long. Something that could have been a giggle for a few seconds before moving on, just kept going on and on in the movie. I think that’s where the editing bits to fit a 22-minute format actually helps lose the filler material. Some of it made it into the movie.

I think this would have worked better as a a multi-episode arc on the series where they went to Miami for the police convention and just stretched out some bits for two or three episodes. That would have saved us from seeing the filler material and it would have also saved us from seeing Dep. Williams’ butt so much as well as Lt. Dangle’s everything else. Jer had to shield his eyes quite a bit from those scenes.

Added bonus: Paul Rudd as the big bad guy. I love him!
