"Stone": Edward Norton talks about his new criminal buddy pic with Robert De Niro

We Rent the Night

Pride and Glory doesn't make any effort to disguise precisely what it is: a barely-held-together string of vignettes lifted from every cop movie ever made, save, perhaps, Turner & Hooch. It serves up clichés bound together by a flimsy, bored-out-of-its-own-skull…

Revenge of the Nerds
