Good cops. Bad Hair. Starsky and Hutch�They�re The Man!

Originally a 1970�s police drama about two plainclothes cops solving crimes in their striped tomato-red Ford Torino, it comes as no surprise that this film is a spoof adaptation of that show having three members of the Frat Pack in it.

Originally a 1970�s police drama about two plainclothes cops solving crimes in their striped tomato-red Ford Torino, it comes as no surprise that this film is a spoof adaptation of that show having three members of the Frat Pack in it.

Comic tag-team Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson pair up once again as the serious and by-the-book David Starsky and the laid-back streetwise Ken �Hutch� Hutchinson, while Vince Vaughn plays bad-guy Drug kingpin Reese Feldman. The film is supposed to be a prequel to the original Starsky & Hutch, depicting how the two came to be partners.

Starsky & Hutch are called to the scene where a dead body has just washed to shore. A clue on the body links Feldman to the corpse, and the investigation reveals that Feldman is planning something big.

While questioning a man in prison, they�re handed a packet that seems to be cocaine, but the lab back at the fictitious Bay City Police Department tells them its artificial sweetener, and Starsky doesn�t hesitate to use it in his coffee.

After a night of feeling the drug and Hutch getting a threesome, it becomes clear that Feldman is shipping in coke that is odorless and undetectable by drug-sniffing dogs.

Starsky and Hutch must go undercover into a Bat Mitzvah, an auction, and take out a pony along the way. Their partnership will be threatened, friends will be injured, but they�ll find help in their compatriot and informant Huggy Bear to help them make the city a safer place.

This movie rated PG-13 for drug content, sexual situations, partial nudity, language and some violence.
