Stop me if you've heard this one: A special police unit operates slightly above the law, making the argument that you have to "act like a criminal in order to catch a criminal." Living so close to the moral edge, some of the officers actually fall over and lead double-lives...corrupt cops on one hand, justifying their illegal actions with the "good police work" that they do otherwise. Usually in these shows/movies, there is a straight-laced captain or higher-up, intent on bringing down the corrupt cops but always falling one step behind. Sound familiar?

The new raunchy, lazy, drunk-buddy-comedy 21 and Over is super-bad. Not to be confused with the very funny 2007 film, Superbad, although both feature young friends and plenty of alcohol. Bad as in awful (21 and Over hits theaters today).
