It's the ultimate buddy cop movie except for one thing: they're not cops. Two slackers hatch an outrageous plan to impersonate police officers. Before long, the pair are confiscating chronic, scoring hot babes and recklessly racing through the streets in a squad car they found online. But when they get tangled up with actual mobsters, these fake cops find themselves in hot pursuit of real trouble.

Critics Consensus: Damon Wayans, Jr. and Jake Johnson have comedic chemistry; unfortunately, Let's Be Cops fails to do anything with it.

Over-the-top comedy has tons of swearing, other iffy stuff.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Let's Be Cops is an over-the-top comedy about two average guys who decide to impersonate Los Angeles police officers and end up becoming embroiled in a real mob scheme. There's a lot of shooting and fighting, as well as tons of swearing (with every word you can imagine in almost every scene), some drinking, and drug use (both pot and crystal meth). The violence is pretty realistic, and when people get shot or punched, it really hurts. Characters also make sexual references, flirt, and kiss; in one scene, a woman takes off her top (she's shown from the back), and in another, an officer trying to apprehend a naked man ends up in close proximity to the man's genitals.
