Time Out says

Sadly, this adaptation of Joseph Wambaugh's bestseller about the LA police plumps entirely for grossly inflating the vulgar 'playfulness' of the dozen-or-so cops in their on and off duty hours, while ignoring the fact that the humour has to be seen in counterpoint to the frightening descriptions of urban horror which the police confront daily. The book's humour was the ribald and understandable explosion of a safety valve; here it is merely an offensive display of stereotyping, sexism and patronising insincerity. A travestied misrepresentation and a notably complete failure.
