    The movie is one my dad told me about. It's about an Australian actor playing a cop and his black partner (this character might be played by Morgan Freeman) looking for one of the cops kidnapped daughter. I thinkte daughter is like 11. Thanks!

    Title should say "help with a film name"

    ^^ could be, perhaps "along came a spider". In both cases its not a cop daughters who is kidnapped but MF is a cop "involved" in the incident.



    Ah actually i think he means Lethal Weapon, Mel Gibson being the aussie cop, and its not Morgan Freeman but Danny Glover.

    In LW, Murtaugh's (Gover's) daughter was like 15-16, not 11.

    I believe that the OP is referring to Flight Plan. Except for minor details, this has got to be it = oh yeah, Jodie does not play a cop and doesn't have a partner (& she might be neither black nor Australian either) . But I'm sure this is the film. Check out the following:

    Wonder what Danny Glover thinks of old Mel?
