Cop Car Movie Review

Kevin Bacon stars in Cop Car

Boys Will Be Boys

IMDb Plot: A small town sheriff (Kevin Bacon) sets out to find the two kids (James Freedson-Jackson & Hays Welford) who have taken his car on a joy ride.

"This is our cop car now." Be careful what you wish for, boys. Auto theft is the least of these kids' problems... but none are half as entertaining as having Kevin Bacon hot on your trail. Unfortunately, there's more than six degrees of separation between Bacon and Jon WattsCop Car. Let's hope Watts doesn't incorporate the same strategy in the next Spider-Man film. Luckily, it's short enough (86 minutes) to overlook; but Cop Car would benefit from a detailed back story, showing how Bacon got here... instead of asking two curse-happy, otherwise dull kids to do all the driving.
