Wait, There’s a ‘Cop and a Half’ Sequel, and It Has a Trailer?

Well, here’s an unexpectedly desperate new addition to the growing pile of ’90s sequel-cum-remakes. It’s Cop and a Half: New Recruit, a film that, against any and all reason, is a follow-up to 1993’s critically-lambasted Cop and a Half.

Strictly adhering to the format of Dolph Lundgren’s similarly-inexplicable Kindergarten Cop 2, the straight-to-video film sees a new, faded star take on the role of “gruff officer frustrated by youthful antics.” While the original was led by Burt Reynolds, now it’s Lou Diamond Phillips collecting a paycheck for this thing. Ouija: Origin of Evil actress Lulu Wilson co-stars as the Half. In the apparent interest of modernizing the story, drones with lasers now figure heavily into the plot.

Cop and a Half: New Recruit arrives on DVD and digital August 1. Then, perhaps, we can finally get around to forcing Freddie Prinze Jr. into a straight-to-video Turner & Hooch.

    I can’t not think of semen when people write blank-cum-blank, I wish the fad would go away.

    “Why do you look like you just came out of a low budget buddy cop movie?”
    I did not expect self-awareness when I pressed play to this trailer.
