Went to see a preview of "Starsky and Hutch" last night. You know, any plot is just a vehicle for the gags in a Ben Stiller movie - and that's okay with me. It wasn't as good as some of the older stuff, but it was still pretty darned funny. Owen Wilson plays such a great partner/straight guy to Stiller. A large part of what I enjoy about watching him is that his pretty standard gorgeousness is tempered by the goofiness. Wil Ferrell had a small part again. Again, like in "Zoolander," it was weird. There were even cameos from the original Starsky and Hutch. For me, though, it was Snoop Dog who stole the show as Huggy Bear. Oh, those one liners...Dolomite one-liners. He really should stay off the drugs, because when he's on, he's on.

In all - if you liked the original series, you'll be tickled by this one. I'd say to check it out at a cheapie theater or during a matinee, however.
