Devon Butler is an eight-year old who dreams of being a cop. He watches police TV shows, knows police procedures, and plays cops and robbers with his friend Ray. One day, while snooping around in a warehouse, he witnesses a murder. He goes to the police, who want the information, but won't get it until they make Devon a cop. The police then team him with veteran cop (and child hater) Nick McKenna, and the two team up in comic series of events to find the killer.Written by

In the beginning when Devon and Sanchez are following Nick McKenna while he is chasing Quintero and Chu by car, Nick uses his car door to slam Chu to the ground. Chu leaves a big dent on the door which is visible when Nick opens the door and gets out. In the following shot when Nick enters the car again the dent is gone. See more »

People are trying to kill you. Are you some kind of bonehead or what?
I'm not, and you don't have to yell!
I can't handle this anymore. I can't handle it. Look, pick a city, Cincinatti, Cleveland. You take you and your grandmother. You go there, I'll pay for it!
You call this being a father?
I'm not your father
and I ain't your partner, either!
Fine! I don't want ...

Though it's tacked on before the credits instead of after, there's an extra scene in which a sickly Chu is still seen laying on the hood of the bad guys' getaway boat still running in the ocean. See more »

Cop and A Half is not a materpiece. It isn't something remarkable or memorable, but there is a significant difference between a bad film and a masterpiece. Although not a terrific movie, Cop and A Half is an entertaining and good comedy, with some really funny moments. With great performances and an above-the-average production (it was produced by Imagine, Ron Howard's company), this is a fast and simple motion picture. Burt Reynolds is charming and excellent as Nick Mkenna, the solitary cop who turns out to be a better person in the end, by living the most exciting adventures with the kid Norman Golden Jr. (who is very funny and talented too!).Despite all said about Cop and A Half, despite the reviewers who claim that this is a stupid picture, rent Cop and A Half, because at the same time it isn't a terrific work, it is a good and simple comedy about friendship, forgiveness and love.
