Let’s Be Cops – Review

The power, the authority, the ability to make someone dance in the middle of the street for absolutely no reason apart from your own amusement – well perhaps not the later, but still a great many perks.

Ryan (Jake Johnson) and Justin (Damon Wayans, Jr) pondered these exact possibilities when deciding to rock up to a college reunion in cop uniforms, only to come face to face the reality that their lives are an overwhelming disappointment.

That all changes however when they take to the streets dressed as cops and discover an exiting world of possibilities that are presented to them, especially when everyone thinks your $1 LAPD badge is real.

However, when you decide to wear the badge, you can almost guarantee that danger is not far behind, and unfortunately for Ryan and Justin, it’s about to get REAL. Bullets, criminals, conspiracies, and everything in between – these two fake cops may just have to become real cops if they’re going to make it out alive.
