(Harrison Ford, Josh Hartnett, Keith David / PG-13 / 91 mins / Columbia)
Overview: Two Los Angeles Police Department homicide detectives (Harrison Ford, Josh Hartnett) investigate the onstage murder of a rap group, possibly organized by the boss of a top rap label.
Verdict: Are four or five genuinely funny moments worth an expenditure of nearly two hours of valuable time? I think not, which is why 'Hollywood Homicide' ends up to nothing short of a humiliating comedown for Ford! He looks creaky and grumpy, obviously aware that he is miscast and dreading every scene, and nothing in the flick really 'fits'- most notably the partnership of Ford and Hartnett! Basically, 'Hollywood Homicide' is nothing but a forced, ungainly vehicle that stalls each time it threatens to actually start!
