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.

Nina Dobrev and Rob Riggle also star in the film, which is Greenfield’s first with Fox in a decade.
