That old Hollywood standby, the venerable buddy cop movie, may have met its anguished demise this holiday season.Even with Smith being his most charming singular Smith, "Bright" is a mess.To prepare for writing "Bright," it seems Max Landis decided to throw every cop film cliche into a Cuisinart, put it on the high setting and leave the top off. This film is what happens when Harry Potter throws up on "Training Day," "16 Blocks," "The Wire," "48 Hours" and "Police Academy". David Ayer has directed "Bright" and he's had a role in other buddy cop films, helming "End of Watch" and writing "Training Day".The scenes fit together poorly and the humor is forced.Actually, there's not an original thing in the film, with the possible exception of a foosball table being used to try to kill an elf.Things go seriously off the rails as the film lurches to its conclusion.Smith seems to know how bad the film is so he agrees to have his face hit repeatedly, leaving it puffy and bloody.
