Editors Note
Note Comedy Central's cult-favorite COPS-spoof series, RENO 911! comes to the big screen with RENO 911!: MIAMI. The film follows members of the Reno P.D. as they desert the bright flashing lights of the biggest little city in the world for sand and surf and an invitation to the annual police officers' convention. It will come as no surprise to regular RENO-watchers that the incompetent police force--led by the earnest, hot-pants-wearing Lt. Jim Dangle (Thomas Lennon)--hit an administrative snag, and aren't allowed into the convention. But the crew decides to make the most of their multi-hour bus trip to Florida, until an emergency call to duty cuts their impromptu vacation short: they are expected to keep the peace in Miami while the rest of the nation's police forces are quarantined due to a biochemical warfare attack on the convention center. Finding themselves way out of their league in a high-tech police station and Mustang patrol cars, the Reno cops ineptly stumble through Miami, leaving destruction and hilarity in their wake.^Although the RENO 911! police-farce schtick is often compared to the screwball comedy of the POLICE ACADEMY franchise, the improvisational comedic talent of its troupe sets it apart. Actors Kerri Kenney-Silver (as the unstable Deputy Trudy Wiegel) and Robert Ben Garant (as the loose-cannon Deputy Travis Junior) affectionately delve into the wildly stereotypical characters they portray, while also adding doses of humility that invoke a natural desire to root for them. RENO 911!: MIAMI allows the perpetual underdogs to really shine, providing a positive, warm message as an undertone to the over-the-top zany comedic antics.
Entertainment Weekly "The absurdity is even better on DVD -- you can rewind and watch again." -- Grade: B 06/22/2007 p.59
Ultimate DVD 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he film keeps things moving rapidly wand with enough edge to push the boundaries of the comedy genre....RENO 911: MIAMI certainly delivers 90 minutes of solid laughs." 06/01/2007 p.103

Review "Many television shows have made the impossible leap to the big screen, but rarely do you encounter one that barely offers anything new to the paying customer...The Comedy Central program ""Reno 911!"" started life as a parody of ""Cops,"" the legendary Fox reality show about the horrors that face our nation's law enforcement. Taken to the comical extreme, the show examined life in Reno through the eyes of the local ragtag police squad, led with overt homosexual energy from Lt. Jim Dangle (Thomas Lennon). Buffoonery ensues...It looks terrible and has the production value of a snuff film. Hell, I'm not even sure it's an actual movie. But ""Miami"" features a convincing amount of hilarity and just the right amount of smut to consider this lateral move to the big screen a success."

Review Reno 911!: Miami represents an argument against taking 22-minute TV comedy shows and expanding them to 80-minute feature films. Something that entertains over a short period when watched from the vantage point of a couch or a recliner does not necessarily offer a comparably enjoyable experience when expanded and lengthened. It can be done - see South Park and Monty Python for counter-examples - but those are not the norms. As a TV show, Reno 911! is diverting and amusing; as a motion picture, it's overlong and wears out its welcome. The film offers some solid laughs, but not enough to justify sitting through 80 minutes of the faux cops' antics...Devotees of the TV show, however, will probably not be disappointed...When a joke in Reno 911!: Miami works, it's usually hilarious, and a lot of the funniest moments are on the gross and/or crude side (what some have termed as "college humor"). The problem is that the ratio of successful jokes to running length isn't very good (about one per 10 minutes), and there are a lot of duds strewn along the way. There's something dispiriting about watching a comedy where there are many more misses than hits; maybe it's a result of expecting too much...Reno 911!: Miami is recommended only for die-hard fans of the TV show.

Review Fox has reaped nifty little paydays from risque comedies, but the minimal effort expended on this barely-feature-length version of Comedy Central's "Reno 911!" exposes the exercise for what it is -- namely, an opening-weekend pit stop en route to the inevitable unrated DVD release, which will likely do reasonably well. Running a mere 80 minutes and somehow still feeling heavily padded, this "Cops" spoof yields a few amusing (if widely spaced) moments but otherwise simply revels in the gratuitous nudity, language and below-the-belt gags that an "R" rating provides...With the series in its fifth season -- chronicling in deadpan, mock cinema verite-style the crime-fighting efforts of Reno's police force -- the producers obviously felt the movie needed a splashier stage, even if the biggest little city in the world is amusingly described near the outset as "like Mayberry, except everyone's on crystal meth and prostitution's legal"...Like any improvised comedy, though, there's a rarely-hit-and-mostly-miss element to the goings-on. It's telling that the obligatory closing-credit sequence displaying additional footage (not outtakes) isn't any better...All of which goes to demonstrate that while it's easy enough to slap a colon on a lowbrow cable TV show, additional punctuation by itself isn't sufficient to actually transform it into a movie.
