The Mod Squad is a 1999 American action thriller film directed by Scott Silver and starring Claire Danes, Omar Epps and Giovanni Ribisi. It is based on the television show of the same name. Peggy Lipton and Clarence Williams III who played Julie and Linc in the original series, make cameo appearances.


Julie Barnes (Claire Danes), Pete Cochran (Giovanni Ribisi) and Lincoln Hayes (Omar Epps) are three minor delinquents who choose to become undercover cops in place of serving their jail terms. When their superior Capt. Adam Greer (Dennis Farina) is murdered, the trio set out to find the real culprits.



Sarah Michelle Gellar, Melissa Joan Hart and Milla Jovovich were considered for the part of Julie Barnes, but they all passed until Claire Danes eventually got cast. Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris were offered the chance to direct the film, but turned it down in order to concentrate on making music videos instead; Scott Silver got the job.


The Mod Squad received negative reviews by critics.[3] Rotten Tomatoes reported that 3% of critics had given the film positive reviews, based on 63 reviews, with the consensus; "The Mod Squad aims for stylish cool and thrilling adventure, but collapses in an incoherent jumble of dated source material and unintentional hilarity."[4] At Metacritic, which assigns a rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the film has received an average score of 16, based on 21 reviews.[3] Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "C-" on an A+ to F scale.[5]

The film was nominated for a Razzie Award for Worst Screenplay, but lost out to another television show turned movie: Wild Wild West. At the 1999 Stinkers Bad Movie Awards, the film was nominated for four awards: Worst Picture, Worst Actress (Danes), Worst Supporting Actor (Ribisi), and Worst Resurrection of a TV Show. It was also a box office bomb, grossing only $15.4 million out of its $50 million budget.
