R | | Comedy, Crime
Two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party and 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.
Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. both work on New Girl (2011) together. Nick Miller, Jake Johnson's character on New Girl, has the same surname as Justin Miller, Damon Wayans, Jr.'s character in Let's Be Cops. Rob Riggle has also appeared on New Girl as Big Schmidt.
We're the law, bitch!
Many of the police throughout the movie hold their weapons with finger on the trigger, a mistake no real law enforcement officer would ever make.
Another montage of Ryan and Justin posing as cops is shown during the end credits.
