Two best friends are coming to realize that their lives are not where they thought they would be when they turned 30. After attending a masquerade party dressed up as cops they realize the potential they have while wearing the uniform. But they take things to far and become embroiled in real life cop problems.
I was really looking forward to this movie when I saw the trailers for it. But this movie has committed one of my cardinal sins and that is with all the trailers and tv spots they pretty much show you all the funny moments in the film. That is always disappointing to me and I do not understand why the movie companies keep doing that. Take notes from some of the more successful R rated comedies where you do not have to show every single funny moment in your trailer to get people to come in or show us some of the scenes that maybe didn’t make it into the movie.
The second thing that I didn’t like about this movie is that even before the halfway point I knew what was going to happen with not only the two main characters but the storyline as well. I am not going to ruin anything for those that still go see it in the theaters but if you pay attention you know what is going to happen to O’Malley (Jake Johnson) and you know how the story is going to unfold.
This seems to be a recurring problem with R rated comedies, you will get like two great comedies that everyone is going to compare all other comedies that follow it and this year they happen to be Neighbors and 22 Jump Street. I do believe there is room for more great comedies especially the R rated kind but they do need to take notes from the above mentioned movies and plan accordingly.
I wish I could say go see it in theaters but sadly do not waster the money wait for the DVD.
