Let's Be Cops

Our Score
New Girl 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 The Heat, Ride Along and a dozen others like it). As likeable as the two on-screen losers are, the inevitability of their journey means both they and the impressive supporting cast (particularly Rob Riggle as a real-life cop duped by their antics) career towards an eye-rolling finish. With a funny premise that is never really developed, 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.
