Blog: Let’s Be Cops – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Er… Let’s Not? Look the trailer was funny enough, well enough to convince me to give this a go despite the generally scathing reviews.  Add to the fact I quite like Wayans & Johnson from their roles on New Girl… well it couldn’t be that bad could it? Actually it’s not THAT bad. It’s also not that good either.  The film has it’s moments but the joke (and the jokes for that matter) run thin within 4o minutes and sadly the film has well over an hour to go at that point.  In short: It’s a good idea for a TV show episode, a bad idea for a movie. Wayans & Johnson DO have charisma but you’re better off sticking to New Girl.

Best Bit: The first time the guys suit up is pretty funny.  By this film’s standards.
