The Mod Squad is the theatrical adaptation of the popular 60s TV show. The story centers on three Juvenile delinquents who get a second chance by serving as pawns of the police. Considering their ties to the underworld, Julie Barnes (Claire Danes, Romeo and Juliet), Pete Cochran (Giovanni Ribisi, Saving Private Ryan, Avatar) and Lincoln Hayes (Omar Epps, House) can go places other cops can't, so they are tapped by Captain Adam Greer (Dennis Farina Snatch, Manhunter) to infiltrate a seedy night spot suspected of being a front for a prostitution ring. For a start, Julie gets a job there as a waitress, while Pete and Linc just "hang out" to find out what they may. Julie quickly becomes reacquainted with an old boyfriend, Billy Waites (Josh Brolin, No Country for Old Men), who turns out to be involved with drugs, which are tied in to the shady dealings going down at the bar. Before it's over, the "squad" is in it up to their necks, while also running afoul of a bunch of wrong cops who are also involved with the drugs, and consequently tied in with their investigation. The supporting cast includes Richard Jenkins (Detective Mothershed), Steve Harris (Briggs), Larry Brandenburg (Eckford), Lionel Mark Smith (Lanier) and Sam McMurray (Tricky).
