Let’s Be Cops, 2014.
Directed by Luke Greenfield.
Two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party and become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted “heroes” get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line.
I am told that our pretend cop co-stars Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. have some incredible comedic chemistry together on the hit sitcom New Girl, and after watching Let’s Be Cops that is a statement I am inclined to believe. Simply put, their camaraderie is the only thing holding the film together from crumbling down into a total disaster. The core of those problems come from director and writer Luke Greenfield, a.k.a. the talentless schmuck that directed The Animal starring Rob Schneider. »

Marvel Studios is taking its biggest risk yet with Guardians of the Galaxy, banking on an obscure team of heroes to bridge the gap until the next Avengers flick roars into theaters. But there's an even larger obstacle standing in the way of box-office success: Dave Bautista.
To the uninitiated, Bautista is a six-time world champion in Vince McMahon's wrestling circus, and one of the most iconic squared-circle stars of the last decade. In Guardians, he plays intergalactic warrior Drax the Destroyer, which is unquestionably his biggest role to date. »
This August’s Let’s Be Cops will, among other things, test the box office mettle of New Girl costars Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr., together onscreen again. Most of the red band trailer footage shown thus far (including, in the preview featured above), has been heavy on broad comedy setups, indicating that the movie isn’t that far apart from a feature-length, R-Rated sitcom episode; though, in all fairness, that’s to be expected from a film co-written and directed by Luke Greenfield (helmsman on the Rob Schneider comedy The Animal and the porn star rom-com The Girl Next Door).
Not every summer Hollywood comedy can be witty exercise in post-modern comedy and self satire like 22 Jump Street, though – or even a quirky raunch-com with elements of social commentary such as Neighbors, for that matter – and the truth is, sometimes a ...

It's the ultimate buddy cop movie except for one thing: they're not cops. When two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party, they become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly minted "heroes" get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line. Watch as Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. have too much fun in a career they only thought was pretend. Is Let's Be Cops the must see comedy of the summer? Or will this be another miss for director Luke Greenfield, the man behind The Animal, Something Borrowed, and The Girl Next Door?
Let's Be Cops comes to theaters August 13th, 2014 and stars Nina Dobrev, King, Angela Kerecz, Jake Johnson, Andy Garcia, James D'Arcy, Damon Wayans Jr., Rob Riggle. The film is directed by Luke Greenfield. »
