EARLY in "Let's Be Cops," star Damon Wayans Jr. asks his buddy Jake Johnson if what they're doing - impersonating police officers in order to gain the unintentional perks and respect - is illegal.
Possibly, maybe, don't worry about it, is Johnson's reply to his literal partner in crime. And, thus, the premise of a movie is built.
That premise is not enough to sustain the movie over the course of its running time. But "Let's Be Cops" isn't an entire waste of time. If anything, it introduces moviegoers to Johnson and Wayans, who fans of Fox's "New Girl" know have an instant, affable chemistry.
