Movie Summary

Todd Phillips

The film tells the story of two Bay City cops who must solve the murder of a drug dealer. David Starsky and Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson are called to the scene of a crime when the body of a dead pusher washes up on the beach. Clues lead them to Reese Feldman, a local drug kingpin. When the accidental shooting of Feldman's daughter's pet pony results in the suspension of Starsky and Hutch from the force, the two decide to go after the kingpin independently. Assisted by their informant, Huggy Bear, Starsky and Hutch go undercover with hilarious results.
