Starsky & Hutch took critics on a side-splitting ride. Hailed as “this year’s best comedy” (Paul Clinton, CNN), and “easily the funniest film of the year” (Dan Dunn, The Boston Metro), Starsky & Hutch has “a handful of really hilarious moments that most comedies just don't deliver” (Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle).

The dynamic duo Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson received rave reviews from The New York Post who recognizes them “as fine a comic team as Hollywood has ever produced” (Jonathan Foreman).

USA Today proclaims “they have infectious chemistry” (Mike Clark) and Time Magazine’s Richard Schickel regards Stiller and Wilson as “perfectly cast”.

Consumers nationwide can receive $5 off the purchase of Starsky & Hutch and The Big Bounce. Both DVD products will feature on-pack stickers to tout this offer at participating retailers.

SYNOPSIS

Detective David Starsky (Ben Stiller) is the most dedicated undercover cop working the mean streets of Bay City, California. Maniacally devoted to his job, when he's on duty no crime goes unpunished – and he's always on duty. Detective Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson (Owen Wilson) is having career issues of his own – he's a good cop, but his hazardously laidback personality and desire for a quick buck don't always get the job done. As soon as the two mismatched crime fighters unhappily begin their first day on the beat as a team, a "floater" turns up on the Bay City coastline. With the help of Hutch's dynamite, street-savvy informant Huggy Bear (Snoop Dogg), the two begin to unravel the mysterious murder case.

All signs seem to point at wealthy businessman Reese Feldman (Vince Vaughn), but Starsky and Hutch just can't seem to make a case against him. The unlikely duo will use their canniest undercover skills, hardcore street smarts and striking good looks to solve the crime and make sure the criminal does the time.
