Was that Susie Essman as the gun-wielding mom?

I feel like the jokes in this are probably a lot more vulgar than could be shown in a green band. Tracy Morgan should be great in this.

Looking forward to this one.

Interesting to see Kevin Pollack show up for a split second in the trailer. He's racking up a Willis-costar tally to rival Samuel L. Jackson.

yeah...seems like the actual punch lines were almost there but...had to be cut out. I liked the trailer. Morgan doesn't have me sold. But..after hearing Smith talk about it the way he did when he came to Dallas. It's like a nerdgasm of Willis cop films.

It wasn't as funny as I expected, but the "No, no, no!" part at the end had me rolling.

Wow, if I was black I would be ashamed that Tracy Morgan was in my race.

meh...but I kept picturing Tracy Morgan as his charater from 30 Rock in this which made it much more funnier to me for some reason.

Now if they can just make his other movie, Who Dat Ninja...

That was 25 fuckin years ago, Kevin. Sit your ass behind the camera.

*One take later*

That one was for you, kid.

Kev's Dallas appearance completely sold me on this film.

Didn't do much for me. Looks like it'll be generic and mildly amusing.

Some encouraging tweets from @ThatKevinSmith about what, to my eyes, is a very poorly-received Cop Out trailer:

Wow - never realized until Tweeting it: COP OUT is so tonally close to Michael Ritchie's FLETCH that I probably owe his estate a few bucks.
39 minutes ago from web

@cinemaphile "PLEASE tell me that is just a green-band trailer for an otherwise Red Band movie!" It is. My flicks are always a bitch [...] to cut trailers for, due to their... colorful language. WB said this trailer tested really well, though. Feedback here's appreciated.
about 4 hours ago from web

Via @leigh100 "I now know this flick is gonna be wicked" I gotta say, it will be. The dubious are gonna have to trust me on this one. S'fun.

Bad trailer, but glad to see there's more to it from the other reactions.

Yeah, I loved it when he said that whole story. I even got him to sign my Clerks X DVD. I was sooo happy. Yeah, his whole story on the film would sell anyone on it. And what Gilgamesh means by his quote is that Smith wanted Willis to act this scene much like he did 25 years ago on this show. Willis, I believe, kinda snapped at him about attempting to act out something exactly as he did 25 years ago and later without even speaking of it again..he just acted out the way Smith wished he would. Smith wet himself with joy when Willis did that. When the shot was over, and Smith regained his sanity over nerding out, Willis told him, "That was for you, Kid".

Willis' main issue with Smith is that oddly enough unbeknownst to Willis is that...well...Smith just does his films. He doesn't know focal lengths and too much tech stuff about cams...Willis snapped at him about that too. So not only is Smith not Tarantino or Rodriguez in film knowledge but he's a fucking huge ass nerd over Willis. And Willis was not ready for that. It's just funny to hear Smith talk about it.

You've got to be kidding. Aside from Chris Rock, I'd say Tracey Morgan is the best black comedian working today (and, frankly, Chris Rock isn't as good as he used to be). And with people like Tyler Perry running around pretending his shit doesn't stink, I think black people have much worse to worry about than Tracey Morgan.

this movie looks terrible. Looks like Kevin Smith is on a roll with lackluster movies. This and Zack and Miri. The next one, Hit Somebody, doesn't sound too promising either.

That was a very bad trailer. I didn't laugh once.

The trailer sucks, but I'll wait for a red band to make a firmer judgment. And for the record, Zack and Miri was awesome.

Man this trailer does nothing for me except for the cheetah comment so I hope another one comes out to sell it a little better...

Title is now Cop Out. Somebody less lazy than I should notify a mod to change the subject header.

I dunno. The trailer was fine... and then Seann William Scott's "Knock knock" dropped at the end and I was sold. Superboy's pretty dead on about comedy trailers. This didn't give anything away and I didn't feel like I'd heard the best jokes. I'm still hoping for good things. Dismissing the movie -- especially a Kevin Smith movie -- after a single green trailer isn't really giving it a chance.
