(2014) (Jake Johnson, Damon Wayans Jr.) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Action Comedy: Two L.A. losers find a lot of fun and self-worth in impersonating police officers, until they are targeted by a local crime syndicate.
- Ryan (JAKE JOHNSON) and Justin (DAMON WAYANS JR.) are a couple of losers who moved from Ohio to Los Angeles together eight years ago and vowed to move back if they hadn't "made it big" by the time they are 30. Ryan is a former college quarterback whose pro career never got started due to an injury. He has failed to make it as an actor, having only found work in a herpes commercial. Justin, meanwhile, dreams of designing the next great video game. But so far, all he has really excelled at the gaming company he works for is taking notes during meetings.
One night, the two downtrodden thirty-year-olds attend a masquerade party dressed as cops. While walking the streets afterwards, they are shocked at the looks attractive women give them, the space even the toughest strangers give them, and the good feelings they get just by being fake law enforcement officers. Justin even impresses the pretty waitress, Josie (NINA DOBREV), he has always liked. But Ryan can't help himself. He also sees an opportunity to get back at the goons who hit his car and then drove away without exchanging insurance information.
Unfortunately, those guys are enforcers for a local crime boss, Mossi (JAMES D'ARCY), and the crooked cop Brolin (ANDY GARCIA) who is the brains behind the syndicate. Ryan and Justin try and enlist an actual cop named Segars (ROB RIGGLE), who won't believe otherwise that they are deep undercover, and a crazy hoodlum named Pupa (KEEGAN-MICHAEL KEY). But nothing can stop an inevitable clash with Brolin, Mossi, and their henchmen.
