Comedy Centrals cult-favorite COPS-spoof series RENO 911 comes to the big screen with RENO 911 MIAMI. The film follows members of the Reno Police Department as they desert the bright flashing lights of the biggest little city in the world for sand and surf and an invitation to the annual police officers convention. It will come as no surprise to regular RENO-watchers that the incompetent police force--led by the earnest hot-pants-wearing Lt. Jim Dangle (Thomas Lennon)--hit an administrative snag and arent allowed into the convention. But the crew decides to make the most of their multi-hour bus trip to Florida until an emergency call to duty cuts their impromptu vacation short they are expected to keep the peace in Miami while the rest of the nations police forces are quarantined due to a biochemical warfare attack on the convention centre. Finding themselves way out of their league in a high-tech police station and Mustang patrol cars the Reno cops ineptly stumble through Miami leaving destruction and hilarity in their wake. Although the RENO 911 police-farce schtick is often compared to the screwball comedy of the POLICE ACADEMY franchise the improvisational comedic talent of its troupe sets it apart. Actors Kerri Kenney-Silver (as the unstable Deputy Trudy Wiegel) and Robert Ben Garant (as the loose-cannon Deputy Travis Junior) affectionately delve into the wildly stereotypical characters they portray while also adding doses of humility that invoke a natural desire to root for them. RENO 911 MIAMI allows the perpetual underdogs to really shine providing a positive warm message as an undertone to the over-the-top zany comedic antics.
