Let's Be Cops 0.0 stars

Let's Be Cops movie poster

Let’s not and say we did. An unsuccessful video game designer and his loser best friend get their hands on police uniforms and masquerade as cops. A dozen or so aerial shots of L.A. interspersed between amateurish, sluggishly-paced, and uncommonly unfunny skits. Where these two stone-broke schmucks raised the dough needed to purchase a squad car and arsenal of surveillance equipment is anybody’s guess. The fact that I was paying attention to something as trivial as this proves that co-writer and director Luke Greenfield was absent the day his college film professor covered cinema sleight-of-hand. The screenwriters obviously had Damon Wayans, David Krumholtz, and Shakira in mind, but budgetary restrictions forced them to go with Damon Wayans, Jr., Jake Johnson, and Nina Dobrev. SPOILER ALERT: the fake cops outwit the bona fide boys in blue by cracking a major crime ring. Next… 2014.
