  Harrison Ford, AKA Indiana Jones, AKA. Han Solo, moving to a hip-hop beat? Not quite, but "Hollywood Homicide" — a curious hybrid of action movie, crime thriller and social satire — thrusts the wry, aging star into contemporary Los Angeles, where he's a weary, seen-it-all police detective investigating a murder in the rap music scene. Ford is accompanied by pretty-boy Josh Hartnett as his hip young partner on the force. Short on cash, Ford's veteran Joe Gavilan moonlights as a real estate agent. Hartnett's K.C. Calden, a ladies' man and spiritual type, teaches yoga on the side and longs to be an actor. While on the case, Gavilan and Calden mix it up with an L.A.P.D. Internal Affairs officer (Bruce Greenwood), a rap mogul (Isaiah Washington) and his henchman (Dwight Yoakam), a sexy radio psychic (Lena Olin), a chic madam (Lolita Davidovich) and a producer (Martin Landau) with a mansion to sell. The heroes' part-time jobs give director/co-writer Ron Shelton occasion to poke fun at Hollywood foibles. The dialogue is snappy — snappier than the film itself, which needs editing. It's diverting, but Shelton's "Bull Durham," "White Men Can't Jump," and "Tin Cup" were fresher, tighter, funnier screen efforts.
