Even with the goodwill of a playful Jeff Bridges performance, the deadening elements of this instantly forgettable action comedy about two cops from different eras paired in the afterlife pile up like corpses. Reynolds, the blandest of Hollywood leading men, plays a shady modern Boston cop who takes too quickly to the movie’s zany concept after his partner in crime (Kevin Bacon) shoots him dead. Meanwhile, Bridges riffs on his chewy ‘True Grit’ character as a Wild West lawman out of time. Tired banter between Reynolds’s mystified straight man and Bridges’s old pro will kill off any fond memories you have of zesty buddy films past and present.
