Bending the Rules is a 2012 buddy cop action comedy film directed by Artie Mandelberg, produced by WWE Studios, and starring Adam "Edge" Copeland and Jamie Kennedy. The film was released on March 9, 2012 in select theaters in the United States for a limited time.[1]


Detective Nick Blades (Adam Copeland) is a New Orleans cop on trial for corruption. Assistant District Attorney Theo Gold (Jamie Kennedy) is the man in charge of putting him behind bars. When these two unlikely partners from opposite sides of the law stumble onto a criminal plot, they'll need to rely on luck - and patience - to take down a dangerous killer without killing each other first. Alicia Witt, Jennifer Esposito and Jessica Walter co-star in a story that proves that when the going gets tough, the tough continue to move at a moderate pace, thus proving that slow and steady wins the race.[2]
