A new red band trailer has been released for Let’s Be Cops, an upcoming buddy comedy starring Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. The two star as best friends who decide to go to a costume party dressed as cops, and the mischief they get up to when they realise people believe that they’re real officers. It’s all good, until a dangerous Russian mobster comes after them. This looks quite funny, even if does tick off one too many generic boxes. It’ll ultimately come down to Johnson and Wayans, and whether or not they’re likeable on-screen. The Let’s Be Cops red band trailer, in the meantime, does provide some funny moments. Here’s hoping the film is funny as a whole.
Also starring Andy Garcia, Nina Dobrev, Rob Riggle, James D’Arcy, and Keegan-Michael Key.
Official synopsis for Let’s Be Cops:
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.
ETA: USA – 13 August, 2014.
