LET’S BE COPS ★★ Directed by Luke Greenfield. Starring Damon Wayans Jr, Jake Johnson, Rob Riggle, Nina Dobrev, James D’Arcy, Andy Garcia
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.
