co-stars Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr play underachievers who go to a party as fancy-dress cops. When they are mistaken for real officers, they enjoy the attention and decide to keep the charade going - which throws them in the path of the Russian mob. Predictable from the start, this fake-cop comedy begins to grate once the novelty of the set-up fades and a standard "falling foul of the mob" plot takes over (see

Let's Be Cops
raises the occasional smile but is so generic it feels like a thousand other comedies that came before it.
Two friends go to a fancy-dress party as police officers, and are amazed by how people on the street react to their uniforms. They decide to pose as cops in the hope of enjoying the perks of the job, but soon end up in over their heads with gangsters and corrupt members of the real force. Comedy, starring Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr.
