Let's Be Cops

Fake cops, real trouble


Let's Be Cops
Two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party, and end up becoming local sensations. When these newly-minted heroes, sorry zeroes, get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line. Expect a lot of bad language and other low-brow antics.

105 minutes.
No persons under 16 (Language, Violence, Drugs).
