Critic Reviews for Rent-A-Cop

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (11)

  • Jerry London's direction is efficient but lacking in the touch or the material needed to mate a romantic comedy with a run-of-the-studio shoot-'em-down.

    May 21, 2003 | Full Review…
  • Rent-A-Cop is a collision between a relationship and a cliche, and the cliche wins, but not before the relationship has given us some nice moments.

    Jan 1, 2000 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Rent-a-Cop barely packs five bucks worth of action, suspense and romance.

    Dec 8, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Minnelli's portrayal of a hooker is poorly written and difficult to accept, but everything else in the plot flows comfortably.

    Jun 14, 2007 | Rating: 3/5
  • Another faceless Reynolds crime caper that handcuffs the audience's appreciation for real arresting comedy. As defective as a broken police siren

    May 31, 2003 | Rating: 2/5
  • Rent-A-Cop tried to recapture the magic that Reynolds and Minnelli shared in Lucky Lady (1975), but instead succumb to being one of the cheesiest action flicks of all time

    This cop thriller starring Burt Reynolds and Liza Minnelli sucks! Minnelli was too old for the role as a prostitute.
