New Poster for Buddy Cop Comedy Bending the Rules

Bending the Rules (2012)

What with all the promotion going on for the film remake of 21 Jump Street, we nearly missed another action buddy crime comedy coming out this spring: Bending the Rules (new poster right; click for larger version). The poster's tagline: "Justice has one small problem. Them."

Maybe we should have kept on walking without stopping for a visit.

Anyway … Jamie Kennedy stars as Theo Gold, the New Orleans Assistant District Attorney, who is about to have the worst day of his life. Not only does his wife decide to leave him on the eve of his birthday, but he manages to lose a high profile case against detective Nick Blades (Edge). Now, the only thing Theo has left is the car his father, Herb (Phillip Baker Hall), entrusted to him — a 1956 Studebaker Goldenhawk. But when he discovers that his father's pride and joy has been stolen, Theo is determined to do whatever it takes to get that car back. The same person he just tried to put away, Nick Blades, becomes his only ally in the police department. As the two set off to find the car, action and comedy quickly develop, because the stolen car is merely a small piece of a much larger puzzle. It's time to start — wait for it — bending the rules.

Bending the Rules opens in limited release on March 9th, 2012. It will likely be direct to DVD soon thereafter. We couldn't find a trailer to easily embed here, but you can see one at the film's website,
