Starsky & Hutch

starskyExactly what I hoped for. Funny, silly, with an authentic 70s-era cop-show plotline. I never watched Starsky & Hutch as a kid- I was seven when it was canceled. I was a devoted fan of The Dukes Of Hazzard and CHiPs. Talk about born in the wrong decade- Ben Stiller as Dave Starsky is much more handsome than Ben Stiller as himself. That permed-out curly hair he wears in the movie is much more flattering than his regular look. All the action in the Ford Grand Turino was like a love letter to Rear Wheel Drive... (Loews Fresh Pond)
