★★½ "Channeling "Lethal Weapon"-era Mel Gibson, co-writer and co-star Anthony Tournis goes full-tilt mullet in this homage to the genre. Loose cannon? Check. Straight-laced partner? Check. A mustachioed police captain forever riled up and clutching a cup of coffee? Check and check. What's missing in this Factory Theater production (directed by Mike Ooi) is a little discipline. That's usually not this company's strong suit. Tournis collaborated with Colin Milroy on the script, and while their wild, loosey-goosey approach is not without its charms, the writing tends to be a little squishy where it needs to be sharp. This kind of show should be nailing jokes left and right. Instead, an impressive turnout of bad hair and '80s costuming is left to do the heavy lifting." -Nina Metz
