When a mild-man­nered games de­vel­oper (Wayans) and his goofy BF ( New Girl’s John­son) mis­tak­enly turn up at a col­lege re­union in LAPD uni­forms, they feel like losers But wait. Lay­dees sud­denly want to dry hump them. Tough guys put their hands up on com­mand. Maybe th­ese cop out­fits – re­plete with bul­let proof – are just the thing. Let’s Be Cops has a de­cent con­cept and sets the bar low with an early her­pes gag be­fore lim­bo­ing right un­der it. 15A cert, 105 min

Mickey Daw­son (Anis­ton) is a so­cialite who has learned to live with her hus­band’s many fail­ings, in­clud­ing drunk­en­ness, poor parenting skills and skirtchas­ing. When Mickey is snatched by doo­fus crim­i­nals Or­dell (Bey) and Louis (Hawkes), her hor­ri­ble hubby is in no hurry to cough up the ran­som. His schem­ing mis­tress Melanie (Fisher) isn’t go­ing to en­cour­age him, ei­ther. Hit-and-miss com­edy of the hec­tic school that makes de­cent use of its fine cast. Club, IFI/Light House, Dublin, 94 min.
