Damon Wayans Jr. & Jake Johnson in 'Let's Be Cops' Red Band Trailer
Right now you can see Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. on Fox's comedy series "New Girl," but later this summer, they'll be throwing on a badge in the R-rated comedy Let's Be Cops. Now the first red band trailer for the comedy has arrived, and it feels a little long, mostly because the laughs don't seem to be as big as they should be in a red band trailer. Johnson and Wayans seem like a great team as a couple friends who dress up as cops for a party and take the costume a little too far, but this feels like it should just be an episode on their TV series rather than a full movie. Maybe it's better than the trailer indicates. Watch?
Here's the first red band trailer for Luke Greenfield's Let's Be Cops, originally from Yahoo:
Let's Be Cops is directed by Luke Greenfield (The Girl Next Door) who co-wrote the film with Nicholas Thomas ("Canoga Park"). When two struggling pals (Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr., both of the series "New Girl") dress as police officers for a costume party, they become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted “heroes” get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line. Rob Riggle, Nina Dobrev, James D'Arcy and Andy Garcia also star in the film which 20th Century Fox has slated for release on August 13th late this summer. Looking funny?
