The chillingly gung-ho darkness that Johnson lends his comic riffs would be the story, if only the director, Luke Greenfield, didn't play the movie solely for laughs, which are few and far between.

Pendulums between addle-brained frathouse cops-on-charade shtick and blandly sober let's-pretend-we're-not-in-some-bad-movieland-fantasy. You'll suffer from PTSD (Post-Terrible Story Disorder) and wish you'd worn a s**tproof vest.

Police Academy 6: City Under Siege has long been regarded as the worst ever cop comedy. That questionable honour, however, is now under threat from this criminally unfunny satire.
September 1, 2014
Rarely as fun as one might've hoped...

Short prison sentences for all involved would seem fair.
August 29, 2014
There are enough jokes to help steady the narrative back in the right direction. Unfortunately, it's just not quite enough to keep you on board.
August 28, 2014
An agreeably dumb comedy about two 30-year-old men with self-esteem issues who find the perfect boost to their fragile egos and frustrated lives....by playing at policemen.
August 28, 2014
The dopey duo have a few decent lines, though Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum already showed us how to do the pseudo-cop routine in the Jump Street pictures.

Let's Be Cops, in three depressingly simple words, at least gives value for money: a title, a studio pitch, a high-concept plot summary, and an apt example of the astonishingly low bar this film aspires to.
August 28, 2014
Let's Be Cops is a stinker on just about every conceivable level.
August 26, 2014
Let's Be Cops is an amiable watch that succeeds in spite of its many flaws, but you can't help but wonder what someone like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang's Shane Black or Superbad's Greg Mottola might have done had they got hold of it.
August 25, 2014
Some nice comic beats and a sinister Andy Garcia turn make this far more watchable that the fratty conceit might suggest.
August 25, 2014
Noisy gunplay, screaming homophobia and stale gags that couldn't get arrested at any other time of the year.
August 25, 2014
The only thing missing is a sequel.
August 23, 2014
"Let's Be Cops" is a fine example of what happens when filmmakers rely too heavily on the potential chemistry of the cast, rather than giving actors something decent on the page to work with.
August 22, 2014
Over-the-top comedy has tons of swearing, other iffy stuff.
August 22, 2014
Let's Be Cops raises the occasional smile but is so generic it feels like a thousand other comedies that came before it.
August 21, 2014
Jokes are mostly absent, and what few exist dive into the deep end of the bad-taste pool. Johnson and Wayans, whatever comic chemistry they have on TV, are hard-pressed to fill the void.
August 20, 2014
The viable chemistry between these two leads keeps the ball in the air, even when the balls land elsewhere in strained homophobic gags.
August 19, 2014
Don't hate this movie because it's a celebration of reckless police power at a time when such a thing is somewhat out of favor- hate it because it's unfunny, derivative and ultimately totally nonsensical.
