RENO 911! MI­AMI (2007) ELEVEN, 8.30PM, M, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

It’s driven by in­fan­tile hu­mour, fat women wear­ing thongs (not the footwear) and naked breasts, but Reno911! Mi­ami is a cut above most other ju­ve­nile come­dies. Not much, mind you, but enough to give you a few good chuck­les. Fans of the TV show on which this is based will al­ready know what to ex­pect, but for the unini­ti­ated it’s a mock­u­men­tary that lam­poons the real-life se­ries Cops. It fol­lows the ex­ploits of a rag­tag bunch of of­fi­cers at the Reno sher­iff’s of­fice led by the gay, mous­ta­chioed Lt Jim Dan­gle as they head to Mi­ami for a po­lice con­ven­tion. When the con­ven­tion cen­tre is locked down by a bi­o­log­i­cal weapons at­tack, the Reno squad be­come the only trained po­lice on the streets of Mi­ami and must deal with ev­ery­day prob­lems, while track­ing down the ter­ror­ists re­spon­si­ble for the at­tack. There’s crude hu­mour and a lib­eral dose of gra­tu­itous nu­dity, but it is also laugh-out-loud funny in parts if you’re a fan of the ridicu­lous. It’s kind of like Po­lice Academy meets Dodge­ball. ★★★
