Rolling Stone

Were detective Dave Starsky (Paul Michael Glaser) and his partner, Ken Hutchinson (David Soul), hot for each other when they started working undercover in Bay City?... you can watch Starsky and Hutch on the big screen and see subtext stiffen into hard and hilarious evidence.

Funny throughout, but with a handful of really hilarious moments.

New York Daily News

By Jack Mathews
The new buddy comedy movie that assumes the names of the series' characters and features the same hot-to-trot, tomato-red and shocking-white 1974 Ford Gran Torino is more fun than a Heidi Fleiss open house.

There may be no crying need for this movie, but we could use the laughs.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
A surprisingly funny movie, the best of the 1970s recycling jobs, with one laugh ("Are you OK, little pony?") almost as funny as the moment in "Dumb and Dumber" when the kid figured out his parakeet's head was Scotch-taped on.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Carrie Rickey
The second-best film parody (after The Brady Bunch Movie) of a '70s TV phenom that unaccountably looks better the further you get from it.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
Stealing the movie, however, is rapper Snoop Dogg as Huggy Bear, the pimp/informant originally portrayed by Antonio Fargas on the TV show.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
What's wrong with this picture? Nothing, as long as you don't expect more than a tossed-off goof.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Michael Rechtshaffen
Cruises along agreeably on the easy chemistry between Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, who step in where Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul left off.
