Much better than you think it might be. Pokes gentle fun at the original series. Aykroyd is terrific. Early Hanks is slightly anoying. Plummer does his share of chopping the secenery.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Aykroyd is a comic reincarnation of Jack Webb, playing Sgt. Joe Friday's dense but dedicated nephew in this parody. Hanks is fun as his freewheeling new partner, with Morgan, Webb's onetime sidekick, now promoted to captain of the L. A. P. D. Starts out quite funny, then goes flat... but the punchline is a howl. Aykroyd coscripted with Mankiewicz and Alan Zweibel.
