Freebie and the Bean

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

Not the latest Disney, as the title implies, but yet another cop movie, a strangely callous exercise that divides its time between comic destruction of It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World proportions, and a super-violence that makes no distinction between the people and the machinery that it destroys. Caan and Arkin manage just enough to justify the presence of yet another wisecracking male duo, but the general feeling is of an attempt at audience manipulation, assembled by computer, apart from the truly bizarre final confrontation that looks like something strayed from another movie. On the whole, a film one can live without.
