(This review may contain spoilers).
When I saw this film advertised, I immediately wanted to watch it. Although it’s quite adult in parts, I still found it to be really entertaining.
The start of the film does a good job of establishing Rose’s character and why she wants to be a police officer. Although there’s little explanation given about her mother, it’s clear she has a good relationship with her father and really looks up to him. And there are a couple of quite amusing scenes of her riding in the back of his police car… and the interactions both of them have with the other characters.
I couldn’t help feeling quite a bit of sympathy for Rose at the start of the film. Her enthusiasm to prove herself was endearing and I really liked the fact that her observation skills came in handy. Although Daniella did irritate me a bit during the course of the movie, I enjoyed seeing them play off each other and the way they kept underestimating the other one.
There were a few tense moments in this movie, along with the humour, that I felt worked really well. There was a good element of mystery and things that were able to surprise me as a viewer.
There were also a number of cringe-worthy moments that I had trouble looking away from. It was cool to see how Rose was so determined to do her job, even when it meant putting herself in awkward, precarious positions.
I did like the element of romance, which wasn’t too heavy in this. And it was good to see that both Daniella and Rose were resourceful and competent… despite original appearances.
I did think that foreshadowing wasn’t utilised as much as it could have been, but the ending of the movie worked and I thought the actors were really good in their roles… even if I didn’t really like Rose’s accent. I would suggest this film as one to watch if you like comedy and don’t mind if it’s more adult comedy.
