When done right, they provide viewers with a little bit of everything — hordes of crude humor, a slew of entertaining characters and some subtle social commentary. It’s this diverse composition that has gifted us gems like “Rush Hour,” “21 Jump Street” and “Hot Fuzz,” to name a few.
Unfortunately, this genre is also home to a number of downright terrible imitations. Most often, these entries fail because of their lack of cast chemistry and strong partner-to-partner dynamic. While Netflix’s new police comedy “Paradise PD” does fall more toward the lower end of the quality spectrum, it — shockingly — manages to avoid this historical pitfall.
