Trapped in a sitcom sensibility, the film never makes the vital connection with the audience that's necessary to spawn a hit.

Hartford Courant

Cops and Robbersons bounces mindlessly along like a bright and zany pilot for a sitcom aimed at reviving the flagging career of Chevy Chase and capitalizing on the new Jack Palance cult.
