“Reno 911” portrays a team of some of the most inept law enforcement officers on the planet. The film is a spoof of the television show “Cops,” and it employs some of the same techniques that are used on that show: a handheld camera is used in some scenes, and the characters sometimes talk to the camera. These techniques are used effectively in this film; however, the film also contains a lot of offensive material. There are numerous scenes showing people’s rear ends, a scene depicting masturbation, and a fairly graphic scene showing intercourse.
Generally, the material that prevents this film from being approved is the language, nudity, and sexuality. This material pretty much sums up the entire plot of “Reno 911.” However, without giving away what happens in the film, I will say that the bungling actions of the police officers are sometimes humorous.
