Fueled by star power, ego and likely Cialis, this tired buddy-cop thriller doesn’t bother to hide its reliance on the charm and dubious chemistry of its leads. Lucky thing, since it tanks as a whodunit. Bob and Al are codger detectives on the trail of a vigilante serial killer, but despite some rough sex and 50 Cent (Curtis Jackson to you), it’s strictly Geritol territory. Still, watching these roosters strut around is a reminder that ramshackle jalopies can haul ass even when they’re coasting.
