Just Leave Your Money at the Door. If You Are Going to See This.

Pros: There is nothing good about this movie at all with very weak action scenes.

Cons: This movie lacks any real acting talent or special effects.

The Bottom Line: like wasting your money then be my guest and see this movie, but otherwise, take your wife and kids out to dinner and enjoy the use of your money.

Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot.

Quick, save your money and not give it to the movie companies. This has got to be one of the most stupidest movies that I have ever seen. This was like going through an 84 minutes surgery procedure and not being knocked out. I have heard that there was a television series called Reno 911, but I have never seen it. I do not know why I continue to put myself through this agony and sit there for approximately an hour and a half and watch this. There ought to be a law against this, if you did not like the movie you should be able to be at your money back. This movie is rated R., but it really should be rated R/S, R because it has very stupid, sexual content and nudity in very crude humor and bad language, plus they do show scenes of some drug usage. The S should stand for stupidity, because a lot of the scenes it kind of reminded me of the Three Stooges and Laurel and Hardy, but that old style of slapstick went out years ago even though I do enjoy watching those older style movies every once in a while.

This particular movie takes place in Miami during spring break, where the city enlists cops from Reno, when they find out that there is going to be a terrorist plot to attack a police convention. There were a lot of flashback memories of the 70s during this movie. A lot of the scenes were very unbelievable such as I cannot believe that they would make visiting police stay in low rent run down hotels and allow them to sleep late when they are supposed to be on the job. As you sit through this movie, you wonder when something funny is going to happen, but it basically turns out that everything in the movie is nothing but a calamity of somebody trying to be funny when they're not.

I can understand where they tried to get a bunch of comedic personnel to play the roles during this movie such as the chief of police, played by Lennie Loftin, and the district attorney played by Danny DeVito. The Deputy Travis junior was played by Robert Garant, a second deputy played by Raineesha Williams, and a third deputy Cherisha Kimball played by Mary Birdsong, a fourth deputy Trudy Weigel played by Kerri Kenney, the fifth deputy Clementine Johnson played by Wendy McClendon, the sex deputy James Garcia played by Carlos Alacraqui, the seven deputy S. Jones played by Cedric Yarbrough, Lt. Jim dangle played by Thomas Lennon, Miss Acapulco played by Alejandra Gutierrez, a bus driver played by Michael Clark, the Kevlar guy played by Brandon Molale and there were other nonessential actors that starred in this movie. But, all in all it was just an hour and a half of sheer disappointment of acting, while watching this movie.

If you ever have seen the movie snow days and were disappointed in that, then you will get the same disappointment I watching this movie. Don't waste your money! This is got to be another one of the worst movies I've ever seen. There is no originality, and nothing is believable, in today's world. The main reason that I went to see this is because I really liked the way Andy Devito acted in his other movies. But this was very disappointing after saying that is. They're meek attempt at any special effects fell well short of the expectation of any purpose. I cannot stress how much you should put your money into someone else, such as getting teeth pulled without novocaine. You might get a better laugh out of that.

Something very scary occured to me as I watched this movie.  The worlds dumbest cops are called upon to keep order cause all the other cops are incapacitated.  Should the day ever come that 8 dimwits with badges are going to be keeping me safe, I think I'll dig a hole and hide for a while.      Reno 911! Miami is the big screen version of the popular Comedy Central TV show about a group of stupid cops and they're attempts to keep order.  This big screen …

Those wacky law enforcers who would make the Keystone Cops jealous go to Miami for a convention only to be the only law enforcement in town. Largely aimed at fans of the Comedy Central series, but it's open ended enough to show that the casual viewer won't be lost.

If there's nothing else a movie studio loves, it's a concept with a pre-existing audience. It's for that reason that multiplexes are forever jammed with sequels, adaptations of novels, remakes, and movies based on old TV shows, videogames and toys. And, of course, what has more of a built-in audience than taking the cast of a current TV series and giving them their own movie? This rarely works, but everybody wants to give it a shot, the less-seen the series, the better. I have never seen Comedy …

About this movie


For Reno 911 fans who believe that Comedy Central's improv-driven mock-reality series could benefit from more unbleeped profanity, uncensored sex scenes, and nudity, the feature-length R-rated Miami will be just the ticket. Perhaps less a movie than it is a Very Special Episode, Miami transplants short-shorts-bedecked Lt. Dangle (Thomas Lennon) and company to Miami for the American Police Convention ("They invited everybody"). No sooner can you say "bio-terrorism" than the hotel is quarantined, and Wahoe County's hapless misfits, shut out when their credentials can't be found, must step in and save the city from "complete chaos." Complete chaos ensues. As with the series, Miami unfolds in a series of hit and miss bits. The funniest are those that hew closest to the Cops template, such as an early "814" call that does not, as the officers believe, decode as armed intruder, but actually involves a loose chicken, and an encounter with a taunting good ol' boy who, when faced with an alligator in a swimming pool, boldly goes where officers Jones (Cedric Yarbrough) and Garcia (Carlos Alazraqui) fear to tread.

Happily, as was not the case with Borat, no innocent or unsuspecting citizens were emotionally harmed during the making of this movie. All of the jokes and humiliations are at the Reno squad's expense. Miami benefits from some subtle (and not so subtle) stunt casting, including Patton Oswalt (The King of Queens) in ...
