Two long time NYPD partners on the trail of a stolen, rare, mint-condition baseball card find themselves up against a merciless, memorabilia obsessed gangster.
Jimmy (Bruce Willis) is the veteran detective whose missing collectible is his only hope to pay for his daughter's upcoming wedding, and Paul (Tracy Morgan) is his "partner-against-crime" whose preoccupation with his wife's alleged infidelity makes it hard for him to keep his eye on the ball.
Jimmy is a detective along with his long-time best friend Paul. When Jimmy's daughter announces that she is getting married Jimmy vows to pay for her dream wedding. After put on probation by his boss Jimmy tries to sell a vintage mint condition baseball card only to have it stolen and then end up in the hands of a violent gangster.

Sean William Scott (the thief) at times out acts Tracey Morgan and I found him to be a better character than Paul was. Cop Out is a good movie about the lengths a father down on his luck would go to to give his daughter the wedding of her dreams and outshine the step-father.
