The nod squad

Retro high jinks leave the killing to others in a hit-and-miss redo

This may make moral watchdogs do some hand-wringing about them as role models. It's a good bet, though, that those same watchdogs won't notice that Pete, Linc, and Julie manage to get through all of the film's car chases and foot chases and fights without firing a shot or killing any of their enemies.

The Mod Squad.
Written by Stephen Kay, Kate Lanier, and Scott Silver. Directed by Silver. Starring Omar Epps, Clare Danes, Giovanni Ribisi, Dennis Farina, Richard Jenkins, Steve Harris, Bodhi Elfman, Josh Brolin, and Michael Lerner. Opens Friday.
