Cop Out was directed by Kevin Smith, though you’d never know it from WB’s ad campaign, which seems to focus more on the WOOP WOOP dats-da-sounda-da-po-lice angle. These two red-band clips are part of the latest promo push, and I want to like them, I really do, but I kinda don’t give a crap. They seem more like outtakes than part of a scripted comedy. They both involve a long, semi-painful, sort of awkward build up to a joke that isn’t horrible, but kind of a let down. It’s basically the comedy equivalent of watching me seduce a woman.
