"Officer Down" is the story of Snookie, a young NYPD beat cop with an unforgivably juvenile attitude toward life, and his mentor, the amiable veteran Detective Funn, who is either unable or unwilling to recognize that his partner's deliberate incompetence puts them both--and the city!--at risk. But then...a disturbing crime-scene crisis inspires in Snookie a fleeting ambition to do "The Job." Shots fired! Officer down! Snookie--what the hell is your problem?
About the director
Dan & Matt O'Donnell are animators, electrical engineers, identical twins, and stupid, stupid idiots. I'm talking scary stupid here--these guys once tried to touch their toes and they had to amputate their toes! Talk about stupid, right? Another time, they tried to balance a checkbook...nice try, guys. Academic probation: their "close bosom-friend," to quote Keats out-of-context. Headaches, chronic unemployment...you get the idea. Unemployable, unintelligible, unbelievably stupid idiots.
