Coffee & Kareem  

Action comedy. Vanessa (Taraji P Henson) is a single mom to a potty-mouthed 12-year old, Kareem (Terrence Little Gardenhigh), who’s furious that she’s dating a goofy white cop, James Coffee (The Hangover’s Ed Helms). Kareem tries to break them up by hiring a local gangster (RonReaco Lee) –who earlier escaped the incompetent Coffee’s custody – to kill the cop. 

Not unexpectedly, it all goes badly wrong as Kareem’s murder plot ends up exposing a criminal conspiracy and putting the non-bad guy cast in jeopardy.  

In that proud tradition of mismatched buddy cop movies such as Tango & Cash (1989) and Turner & Hooch (1989), the unlikely duo proceed to flee across Detroit in a blaze of profanity and slapstick violence that’s as funny as it is silly.
