Let’s Be Cops (Directed by Luke Greenfield) is a very funny movie. The film has plenty of funny jokes that will keep you entertained for the duration of the film. Jake M. Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. have great chemistry, much like they do on the t.v. show New Girl. Rob Riggle was also very funny as one of the cops that believed they were cops for almost the entire time. The film follows two thirty year old roommates, Ryan (Johnson) and Justin (Wayans), who are getting nowhere with their lives. Ryan was going to go pro in football until he was injured, and Justin is a game designer at a company that won’t listen to his ideas. One day, Ryan mistakes a masquerade reunion for a costume party (in June) and the two friends dress as cops. People believe they’re cops and they get a little bit overwhelmed with the power they have (Ryan even buys a police car) and end up getting involved with the mob. The film tried to become a gritty action movie towards the end, which hurt the movie quite a bit, the scenes weren’t as entertaining, and they were much less funny. Most of the scenes before that, however, are very funny. The plot twists were obvious, but that’s fine since it was a comedy movie. For fans of the leads, or just anyone looking for a good laugh, check out Let’s Be Cops, you won’t regret it.
