10 Best Buddy Cop Movies

Published: April 4, 2014

Buddy Cop movies are great. Usually it is a two cops that are opposites that must work together to solve the big case. Usually there is a lot of action, car chases, and explosions. 

  1. Rush Hour (1998)

    Rush Hour stars Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker. Tucker is a fast talking cop with a cool car from Los Angeles and Chan is the super cop from Hong Kong. This is a very good pairing and the comedy and laughs are real. They are oil and water and mix to create a fun film.


  2. Lethal Weapon (1987)

    Danny Glover portrays Roger Murtaugh, he is a family man, wears a suits and ties, is older and may be getting too old for his line. Mel Gibson is Martin Riggs a rough around the edges, wild, maniac, loose cannon, in a downward spiral after the death of his wife. They are both LAPD. They work to solve a big case. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lethal_Weapon

  3. Turner and Hooch (1989)

    Tom Hanks stars as a detective with only a few days to crack the case before he leaves town. Technically Hooch is not a cop, he is just the dog of a homocide victim but it still counts I think. And who doesnt enjoy Tom Hanks early comedic work. And Hooch is hilarious.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turner_%26_Hooch

  4. K-9 (1989)

    Jim Belushi really is not the star. Jerry Lee who is Rando the drug sniffing police dog. The dog outsmarts the humans to great comedy effect. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K-9_(film)

  5. Red Heat (1988)

    Arnold Schwartzenegger is a Russian police who must join forces with  Jim Belushi who is a Chicago detective. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Heat

  6. Supercop (1992)

    I know in China this migh be called by another name but I have only seen it is America. Jackie Chan is Kevin and Michelle Yeoh is Jessica. This movie is full of fights, explosions, and stunts. I hope you dont mind subtitles or dubs. Super is a great action movie.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Police_Story_3:_Super_Cop

  7. Bad Boys (1995)

    Martin Lawrence and Will Smith are superb in this action comedy. This is one of Michael Bay's finest films. Will Smith is Mike Lowrey who is rich, trigger happy and a ladies man. Martin Lawrence is a family man who is uptight. The comdey in this one is better than any on this list.The locale is Miami which isnt that bad. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bad_Boys_(1995_film)

  8. Bad Boys II (2003)

    Martin Lawrence and Will Smith return in the sequel to Bad Boys it is more everything. There are more explosions! There are more car chases! There are more laughs! Sequels should deliver more and Bad Boys II delivers more more more and more to the fans of this genre.


  9. Loaded Weapon 1 (1993)

    Loaded Weaspon 1 stars Emilo Estevez and Samuel L Jackson. This is a parody buddy cop films especially Lethal Weapon. The parody is well done especially if you have seen Lethal Weapon movies. You will laugh and that is alright with me and should be fine with you.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loaded_Weapon_1

  10. Hard Boiled (1992)

    This is a great action movie. The plot is so-so but the action is nonstop.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hard_Boiled
