Two longtime 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.

Warner Bros. picked up the project in turnaround in 2008 from Gold Circle Films, where it had been in development with Robin Williams and James Gandolfini in the lead roles.

Jason Mewes was approached for a role in this film, but couldn't make it due to scheduling conflicts.

2010 Guide Analysis: "Originally armed with the best film title of the Spring ("A Couple of Dicks"), director Kevin Smith fought but ultimately had to change it to a safer sounding one in order to be able to advertise the film. Unlike his previous work though, he is only directing this time out with scripting duties handled by "Gary the Rat" showrunner Robb Cullen. Smith has stated that the film isn't a "Kevin Smith film" as such, but just a 'job' he took so don't expect the ViewAskew hallmarks such as the geek focus or his signature and often delicious dialogue.

Reports from production seemed to indicate things went fine, though the director doesn't have a lot of kind words to say about star Bruce Willis. The supporting cast is strong, and the premise is sound enough that it looks like one to anticipate. Smith happily talks about the gushing test screening reaction of all his films, but that talk is unreliable considering how his output has often proven quite varied in quality. Early critical reviews will tell is this is another bit of "Chasing Amy" brilliance, or something along "Jersey Girl" mediocre lines."
