Finally, people! The Red Band trailer for Kevin Smith’s Cop Out is out now, and now we understand. The Kevin Smith mojo is still there, y’all. It was just hidden beneath the previously crappy PG-rated trailers and television spots. At long last, fans of Kevin Smith don’t have to worry any longer — his hilariously jejune sense of humor is still intact. I no longer have to carry the weight of loathing a Kevin Smith film around with me. What a relief. The monkey’s off my back. It was the profanity, people! That’s what was missing. The fucking profanity!
Nah. I’m just fucking with you. Cop Out still looks like hobo-ass. But now it’s hobo-ass with “Yo Momma” jokes, bad movie references (really, Kevin: a little cultural timeliness would be nice), and a lot more fuck-yous. How bad is this movie going to be? Even the Red Band trailer insists on using that knock-knock joke and the copy-cat scene with Sean William Scott. Probably because it’s Sean William Scott’s only scene. And maybe they think he’s some sort of selling point.
Primate sex — really not funny.
Pinch your nose, folks. Type in your birthday. Hit play, and feel your soul shrivel up.
