THE GUARD (John Michael McDonagh, 2011)

Brendan Gleeson plays Eddie Murphy, Don Cheadle plays Nick Nolte, instead of San Fran we're in Limerick, Ireland, and instead of 48 hours it takes a few more days to allow for some Sundance workshop soul searching.

The actors are game and it's all pretty harmless really, but this kind of slightly snarky, self-referential skewering of genre clichés has by now become something of a cliché itself.
