When a couple of slacker buddies need a costume party plan, they come up with the fine idea of going faux Five-O. So Damon Wayans Jr and Jake Johnson don their LAPD uniforms, and people think they’re the real thing. Our heroes soon experience the respect (and women and drugs and such) that comes with it. They take the joke to the next level by creating a fake squad car, and serious hijinks ensue. But so does stumbling into real crooks and major crimes. Luke Greenfield directs Let’s Be Cops, which he co-wrote with Nicholas Thomas. Rob Riggle, Nina Dobrev, James D’Arcy and Andy Garcia co-star. Fox opens the buddy action comedy August 13.
