This movie didn’t have me under arrest, but I had fun on this ride-along. I thought there were maybe two scenes in the movie where I laughed really hard out loud, and then there were a lot of jokes that I didn’t find funny at all. I would say that this movie fails as a comedy, but has unexpected success as a cop drama. Even though Russian arms dealers aren’t a new concept, I liked when the two friends pretending to be cops get mixed up in this underground world of violence. Jake Johnson was a blast and was perfect for this role, I wasn’t as happy with Damon Wayans Jr. His character was way too whiny and I found it hard to connect with him. Nina Dobrev was a new actress to me and I found her very easy on the eyes, even though her part was pretty small in this film. So, in my final report I’d say that this movie isn’t worth interrogating as a comedy but it might be a movie of interest if you like cop movies. If you are looking for a great comedy, move along, nothing to see here.
