Pure entertainment!

Two long time pals, Justin (Damon Wayans, Jr.), a reject video game designer, and Ryan (Jake Johnson), a washed up college quarterback, recall a pact they once made: if they hadn’t made it in Los Angeles by the time they were thirty, they would head back to their Ohio hometown. It all looks like they are going home but one party changes everything. Ryan convinces Justin to use the police uniforms from his presentation as costumes for their college reunion party. Upon attending, both are confronted with their failures and mutually accept to honor their pact. But as they walk home, they are treated like real cops and decide to enjoy the gag. How long before someone realizes they are not real cops?

What a wonderful surprise! From start to finnish, this flick is entertaining and that's the point right? It's predictable in every way and you can call it a dumb buddy cop comedy but because of Damon Wayans, Jr. and Jake Johnson who have a great comedic chemistry, this film will make you enjoy the ride. Other cast members are good as well. The movie is dynamic, wacky, ridiculous, funny and amusing! It's actually better than many blockbuster comedy's I've seen over the years. Certainly one of my favorite comedies in 2014! I'd recommend you watch it. 4/5
