The high energy screwball tone of the first hour makes way for a low-rent looking Bad Boys homage in the final half-hour, becoming the very kind of movie it attempted to satirize in the first place.

Ends up being a mostly unfunny comedy about characters we don't particularly care about in a situation that doesn't really matter.

While not devoid of humorous moments, Let's Be Cops falls woefully short of the comedic heights of this year's 22 Jump Street.

Greenfield's abysmally judged copycop caper serves only as a timely reminder of how wrong comedies can go with a jobbing director, a charisma-less cast and a warped moral code.

Let's Be Cops, a dull, lame, sexist and predictable 'comedy' ticking the wrong boxes.

This movie is pretty funny. I mean, if you have nothing else to do and a pretty good buzz going, you will laugh.

It wasn't terrible. [Full review in Spanish]

Front-loads itself with "jokes" throughout the first half, while shoehorning in a more dramatic plot arc towards the end

It's hard not to appreciate the pic's devil-may-care attitude, Johnson's prickly-but-likable screen persona, and Wayans' effortless channeling of his famous father.

Sloppy, silly and sporadically amusing, Let's Be Cops feels like one of those 90s comedies expanded from an SNL sketch.

It's surprising how emotionally invested you become in these numbnuts, especially when the proceedings unfold in an all too predictable fashion.

I can't adequately express how soul-sucking the crime subplot is here.

After a fairly solid start, Let's Be Cops melts down into a sludge of sub-Sandler-esque shenanigans that slows the flow of laughs to a trickle.

At this point Let's Be Cops loses much of its humour and starts looking like a film Liam Neeson will turn up in any time soon. That's a pity because the first half, about two doofuses playing police, is funny and occasionally sharp.

... increasingly idiotic but sporadically humourous ....

You pretty much know what to expect with Let's Be Cops, it's juvenile and that's what makes it fun...for a while.

Released the week of the Ferguson shooting, the film seemed poised to probe the raw nerves of America's love-hate relationship with law enforcement. Unfortunately, the spoofery of police power soon gives way to formula comedy and be-all-you-can-be uplift.

Reader, do not underestimate my willingness to watch the stars of New Girl screw around with one-half of Key and Peele when I recommend to you the undeniably conventional Let's Be Cops.

This is pre-adolescent humour. I'm sorry. I don't mean to be rude to pre-adolescents.

The depressingly putrid level of mainstream Hollywood comedy these days is on display in LET'S BE COPS.
