The first look at the summer buddy comedy has the look of a sleeper hit
What happens when you combine “Lethal Weapon” and “New Girl” fan fiction?
“Let’s Be Cops” happens, that’s what.
Behold the first trailer for Luke Greenfield’s summer buddy comedy, which stars TV roommates Jake Johnson and Marlon Wayans Jr. as two hapless 30-year-old dudes who stumble upon the ultimate fantasy: The powers of being police officers, with none of the responsibilities.
The film hits theaters in August, and looks like a potential antidote to what will be a moviegoer headache built up from months of franchise action films and 3D explosions. It also looks like it could give dim kids a bunch of terrible ideas, especially if they have access to solid police costumes.
