Let's Be Cops (2014)
Directed by Luke Greenfield
Written by Luke Greenfield and Nicholas Thomas
Starring Jake Johnson, Damon Wayans Jr., Rob Riggle,
Nina Dobrev, James D'Arcy, Andy Garcia, Keegan-Michael Key
Let's Be Cops was just as dumb as it sounded. The film has virtually zero laughs and is built upon a premise that in reality would have landed these two in prison long before they got as far as they did. While the film does get mildly interesting in the third act, it isn't worth trudging through the first hour.
Surprisingly, Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. (two really funny people) fail to shine in this half-baked buddy comedy. Rob Riggle does his best to maintain some semblance of comedy and I have no idea what the hell Andy Garcia is doing here.
It's best just to go and watch Lethal Weapon again instead of watching Let's Be Cops. The film is full of set ups to jokes that do not happen and is definitely one of the worst films of 2014.
